“A very nice course that will challenge the best golfer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We always play this course when we visit Bar Harbor because it has very forgiving fairways and yest provides a challenge with small greens. The par threes are fun, especially on the front nine. It is pricey for Maine, but very reasonable if you a play Sugarloaf or Belgrade Lakes. There are some unique holes, like the par three #9 that will leave you wondering how you got a double on your score card if you use the wrong club. The first par 5 is a great hole and you should par it easily if you bother to drive up the hill before taking the second shot...other than these two tips you are on your own just like president Taft.

“Hard for high handicappers ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

Nice old course ... makes you wonder how golf was in past years versus today's technology.
Well maintained ... greens and fairways. Tee boxes uneven.
Besides brooks, hidden greens, you have 'humps' in fairways and before greens (in place of bunkers). Bunkers are gravel not soft sand.
Greens very very fast ... Sloped back to front ... If above pin & you just 'touch' w/putter, your ball can roll 5,10ft or off the green ... you're warned.
Saw some ladies but mostly men. Gotta hit the ball up in the air ... Elevated green, high rough.
Overpriced ... say by $25 pp. Hard for high handicaps ... your score will be 20-30 strokes over norm.
Lovely walk/cart beneath the Arcadia Mtns .... Play but don't count .....

“Fast greens and classic layout that fits the eye”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

A wonderful test of golf near bar harbor. Greens are VERY fast and generally with a lot of break. If you are above the hole you will end up sliding by the hole 4-5 feet if you are not careful. Wind a factor. It actually reminded me of the National Golf Links in Southhampton. You will not be disappointed with the design of this course
