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.

The guy in the clubhouse explained to me the layout of the course, even with that in mind we were completely confused by the layout. Friendly people, but the weirdest layout I've ever seen.

I’ve played this course several times. It’s challenging yet fun! This was the best course conditions at Freeport, I’ve ever experienced! Fairways were mowed close, greens excellent, rough cut way back. Only thing left to do is eliminate the ruts so your walk or ride is not so bumpy. Paired with 2 other guys, very pleasant afternoon!

Will definitely be playing course more this season!!

Just arrived in Maine for the summer. Ironically, the weather forecast was fantastic, sunny and warm. Made tee time through “hot deals” and played with two other nice guys, who were slightly better than me. Having spent the last 7 months in Florida, I found the conditions challenging. Fairway grass long, rough was really rough, lots of ruts from winter not repaired yet!! Some areas were very wet and muddy. Enjoyed the day, the round, the other guys......can’t wait for course to be in better condition!

Got to course early, since it’s the end of the season, I was able to get out early! It was a cool, overcast day and very comfortable for fall play. Greens were fast! Fairways very spotty with lots of fallen leaves. Had hard time finding my ball, losing more than I usually do. Conditions were ok for this time of year. I enjoyed my last Maine round!! Leaving for Florida, for the winter, in a few days. I will play Freeport again when I return next summer.

I played 18, whites 1st nine, reds 2nd nine. Nice variety of holes. Course in pretty good shape! Tee boxes and greens great condition, fairways ok. Pace can get slow if you get behind walkers or students. Not everyone courteous to let a single play through. Staff was friendly and efficient. Will play Freeport again!!!

Course conditions not great, however, the greens were lush and receptive so no complaints there. The layout is a little funky and confusing, definitely took 9 holes to figure out where to go. Staff was very friendly. Laid back atmosphere, really good place to bring a beginner or junior that's learning. Overall, its worth the GolfNow price of $20 for 18 with cart. Wife enjoyed it as she's learning (and they sell beer!).

Lost seven balls in middle of fairway. Drainage ditches w/ water, tractor/mower ruts up to a foot deep and filled w/ water, more weeds that grass in fairways. The greens were in the best shape of any part of the course and were only average in quality of play

The course was in rough shape. I understand that we have had a lot of rain, but the long cut grass could have been picked up and the ruts smoothed over.

I would like to try the course again in better conditions

For our 3 rd annual golf trip with my 9 year old I settled on a good price for two. Staff was friendly but the course was not equally pleasant. I found the layout confusing and possibly dangerous due to the close proximity to other holes and golfers. It was a busy day and i managed to lose just as many balls in the fairway as the woods. My son and i had fun. We had enough fun after 9 holes and packed it in.

This course was the cheapest around so we thought we would give it a try. Big mistake. There is no fairway, nor is there a rough, all could be considered short rough or long fairway. Lost more balls in the fairway due to the wet conditions. Some walking the course were wearing boots! The lay out is very confusing, some holes have several options to play, and its never clear which one to play, or even what direction to hit. Wouldn't go back for free. Pay the extra money and go someplace else.

This is by far the worst course I have ever played. The layout is terrible, the pace is terrible, there is nothing that makes sense about this course. If you want to have the worst time of your life, by all means, book a round here. My hope is that nobody ever plays this course ever again. Do not waste your money or time or a nice day on this pathetic excuse for a golf course.

This course in the past has been great but now it is getting bad. The rough is 6 in or more and the fairways are way to long. the tee boxes are not set up correctly. the only good part is the greens are not bad, I have seen them better. I don't know what Harris is doing but he is not spending any money on keeping up on everyday maintenance and it really shows.

I enjoyed my round of 9 holes except for the noise emanating Ftom the nearby interstate highway and some odd routings of golfers at certain points on the course due in part to using varying tees to make this into an 18 hole experience. The experience would certainly be better on a low volume day and not near rush hours on the interstate.
