Great course, not so great conditions
This is a very cool course, and if you're an architecture aficionado there is a lot to soak in here. There is a lot of movement to the land and the course sits very nicely on it; there really are no bad holes.
The greens were in pretty good shape, although very wet with sprinklers running on a lot of them even during my round. Fairways were spotty with a lot of crab grass and bare patches mixed in.
This is a good golf course that could be great with improved conditions.
A drizzly day and the condition of the course kept the crowds away. We had the place to ourselves. Fairway and green conditions were rough even for this time of year. The price-$13.50 with cart- made it worth the trip. Hope it is better in mid-season.
Great location and good value
Enjoyed the wide open fairways and large but tricky greens. Lovely hilly location with some interesting holes. Only issues were the cart tracks are in pretty rough shape and more distance markers would have been helpful. Played on a "hot deal" so all in all, amazing value for money!
Pen Bay nice Ross layout poor grounds keeper
I paid $10.00 per head for me and a buddy so hard to complain, 18 holes with a cart on hot deal, however the course is a dog track, no fairways like a pasture all basically mowed to the same length. Bare spots everywhere and he greens were poor, bare spots, rot weeds, would not play it again. Bummer because it had a lot of potential. The traps are plenty full but the sand had rocks it it and was inconsistent. Save the 10 bucks and go somewhere else
It has been let go
This used to be a very nice course with great fast true rolling greens...in places it looks like a war zone, all your putts bounce, it has clearly not been taken care of. Don't play for over $20 for 18
Great Layout! Wonderful Old Donald Ross Course
My wife and I played this course yesterday and enjoyed it so much that we returned and played again today. The course was masterfully conceived. It is fun to play with wide fairways and fairly large greens. There is quite a bit of elevation change. As with most Ross courses, the challenge starts when you arrive at the green. Straight putts are almost non-existent. If you find yourself above the hole, you can only hope that it goes in or your next putt will likely be at least 4 feet coming back up the hill.
If you want a fun and challenging course to play, don't miss Penobscot Valley CC.
Disappointed in condition of the course
This course has been around for quite some time and family friends have been members for years so I was excited to have the opportunity to play it. The tees were a mess, chunked up and rock hard, nearly had to hammer in the tee. The fairways were dry and hard and not pleasant with a cart, drive slow if you don't want back issues and would like to keep your teeth. The greens were rock hard and tough to keep the ball on, when it landed a big dust puff then it rolled out more than expected. They don't use marked range balls so errant practice shots end up on the fairways making it difficult to spot your own ball amongst all the white balls on a couple of fairways near the range.
Compliment on the bunkers, nice sand and steep walls, a challenge to get out of a couple of them.
It appears their watering system is on the blink which is too bad as the course would be more fun to play if not so dried up and dusty. This summer has had more rain than last, why aren't they watering?
