First Time Playing

Historic & scenic, but PRICEY

Was in Bar Harbor for the week & decided to play a round while wife was at the spa. The course was convenient to Bar Harbor. The course has some neat history and great views. The layout was decent. The greens were well maintained and quite fast, you definitely want to be below the hole. Greens fees were quite pricey - for the price I expect a lot more. I've played courses of similar quality for a fraction of the price. I've also played other courses for this price that had a much better track to play. All in all, it was a nice round, but I don't know that I would play it again, unless greens fees decreased.

Fast Greens -- Nice Views

Very nice course. Somewhat tight. Greens slippery fast and undulating--very challenging. In the valley so you see views of mountains of Acadia National Park. We had early tee time so were able to play fast. By the time we were done, the course appeared to be getting busy so it may take longer to play. Would definitely play again if in the area. Note: Brochure obtained from Chamber of Commerce had a 15% discount coupon that we took advantage of.
