My husband and I played this course this morning and had a great time! The greens were phenomenal and the course itself was challenging but not overwhelming. Playing the holes where Cadillac Mountain rises as the back drop was just beautiful!! It's a long Par 5 and takes on average 4 hrs and 15 minutes to play. Greens fees were... More

We have been doing family reunions to Bar Harbor for the past 20 years and I must say this past visit (7-2-2015) the course played better than ever. The grounds crew has done a spectacular job making the course one of the best in the Northeast. My only gripe is that Maine has some strange alcohol laws that prohibit my... More

A great course, not particularly long but no one ever said that it has to be long to be challenging. A bit expensive, but it is worth it for some of the views set in Acadia National Park. If you have the time, take the time to play. How often can you play the 8th oldest course in the country.

What do you get when you combine Myopia Hunt Club with Royal Dornoch? You get Kebo Valley. Herbert Leeds and Donald Ross. Leeds the Myopia designer is largely credited with the design at Kebo but his work encompassed only 9 holes and many of those were later changed. Someone else was responsible for the the changes and the second nine.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Kebo Valley Golf Club. We appreciate your kind words, and we are glad you had a great day. You are right to say a course does not have to be 7200 yards to be challenging. Kebo plays to a Par 70, and at just over 6000 yards so by today's standards Kebo... More

Finding this place at night time is a little difficult. I am glad I had a GPS. I went for someone's 35 anniversary party. Excellent food and nice homey atmosphere.

Wife and I had the opportunity to play Kebo Valley on our recent trip to Bar Harbor. Course is everything that most other reviews say … has some of almost everything … hills (some quite steep), long par 4s, short par 4s, short par 5s, longish par 5s, short par 3s that seem to play longer and longer par 3s...

Good food at great prices. The view is perfect. Eighth oldest golf course in the US. Locals told us about the club as an eating option.

Happy to have found Kebo from the Forelinksters.com guide to the best public golf courses. It's an interesting history as the 8th oldest golf club in America, but the course features are the star here. Drivable par 4's, the par 5's reachable in two, blind shots and doglegs, small, devilish greens, all extremely well conditioned at a favorable greens fee.

Course is in good shape. Greens are very tricky. Play with a local so you'll know. Cost is fair but their rental clubs are very pricey, so you need to bring your own.
