Freeport Country Club
Freeport Country Club is conveniently located just 20 minutes from Portland, Lewis-Auburn, and Brunswick-Topsham and it is also only minutes from one of Maine's most popular attractions, the L.L. Bean flagship store. Freeport itself is also a charming destination, with plenty of shopping and activities available. The nine-hole layout is gentle enough for beginners but there are still a few challenges in store. The holes are tight and golfers will be confronted with the occasional elevated green. The course is known for having some of the area's best maintained greens. There are also three ponds that come into play. Whether you play a nine-hole round or a full 18 holes, the golf course is a great price, especially for the country club-quality. The well conditioned driving range at the club is also popular.

Best Score at Freeport
Yesterday I had my best 18 at Freeport!! It was a nice day, not too hot, breezy but humid. The course was relatively dry and hard. I was able to make great shots that got some extra runout due to the conditions. I hit lots of fairways and bogies with only two holes of doubles or more.
Earlier in the week I had one of my worst scores at Freeport and went there yesterday with redemption in mind!!! And boy, did I redeem myself!
I’ll be back!!
Played Poorly on a Course in Nice Shape
I don’t know what happened but I played really poor golf today!! My bad!! Course was in nice shape, mowed recently and grooming seemed better than normal. I certainly didn’t play up to PAR!!! My PAR! Oh well! I’ll go back a few more times this summer and challenge myself to do better!! Very few people playing so I didn’t feel any pressure to keep a fast playing pace!! Oh well, that’s golf!!
Pretty fun course
First time playing this course. Some of the layout can be confusing but a good course that offers challenges but not overly difficult. Some unique holes. Can't wait to play it again.
Best Condition Ever
I’ve been playing Freeport for the past 7 years when I’m in Maine during the summer. This is the best I’ve ever seen the condition of the course from tee boxes, to fairways and greens. Today it was pretty wet in the low areas due to severe thunderstorms last night. The cutting of the fairways was excellent. I’d like to see the cart paths improved so they are not so rutted with water puddles!
I played here for the first time this season and matched my best score ever on this course!
I’ll definitely be back!!!
I hadn’t played here in a couple seasons. The last time the course was in rough shape. I could see they have done a lot of improvements with drainage, and just over all up keep in the green and fairways. I was very impressed and pleasantly surprised.
The staff was super friendly and helpful and my wife and I had a wonderful time playing and can’t wait to go back again. We are actually looking into saving up for memberships since we love it so much!
Not so hot
All the homes are close together, strange layout. No sand traps anywhere. Not well maintained at all. Dried out greens, horrible fairways, driving stands were almost dirt.
Great Course, Great Range
The course was in great shape and the greens were awesome. The best range around and maybe in the state. Grass tee, huge practice putting and chipping green. If your are in the area definitely come play.
This course is an all around fantastic course! I love how it is a perfect mix between fun and challenging.
I also have to mention how friendly the staff are there, always having a smile on their faces.
The driving range is probably on of the best in Maine, with the rolling hills and the apple trees.
Will definitely be coming back soon
Playing golf courses is a version of exploring
For Years now, I get on Interstate 295 around Brunswick. As I am blasting past this Freeport Golf course I always say " I gotta play there once. So I did. What can I say? It's a 9 hole layout that makes you use your golfer brain. I have never been one to want or expect a golf course to be pristine. Adjusting to the conditions is a big part of the game. If you live within 40 minutes of Freeport; come and play here once. Go into town and get some good food from burgers to steak,any wine or beer you can think of, and talk about your adventure at the Freeport Golf club. If you live more than 40 minutes, try FAIRLAWN COUNTRY CLUB. It's in the back of Poland. It's actually 18 holes for the same price. It's in great shape. It is a hidden gem. Freeport will never host the PGA. But it can be a fun part of a nice day out.
