Cape Arundel is not a modern course with all the amenities. There is a small clubhouse and pro shop but there is no food service (at least on the Saturday we were there) and no bar! The 19th hole is usually what I need after the way I play the first 18! However, the course is historic even though it looks a little like a muni course. It's short (par 69) and mostly wide open with very few trees. The course is laid out well though and you don't get a lot of peoiple playing out of the wrong fairway. The course has been around for over 100 years and there's a Who's Who of people who have teed it up. President George H.W. Bush is a member here and has played with President Clinton, Arnold Palmer, Phil Mickelson and of course, his son President George W. Bush. Sam Snead has also played here as well as Fred Couples. Mickelson owns the course record with a 60. I had to play it just due to the history.
The way into the clubhouse is tricky though. The road goes across 5 holes and alongside a par 3. Golfers have to wait for the cars to come and go before hitting. The clubhouse is tucked alongside the 18th fairway and the river that winds down the other side. We teed off at noon and were done at 3:30. I love that pace. The people working there were all extremely pleasant and the course is open to the public. We played the week after Labor Day and the only downside was that they just aerated the greens. That was disappointing but I'd definitely play here again. We paid $70 each with a cart.
