My favorite coarse.
I love this coarse! It's can certainly be challenging at times but has the very achievable birdies on a few holes. Mike cloutier and his staff are super friendly and very accommodating when they can be. Keep in mind that Maine is "vacationland" so on a blue bird day in summer you can bet it'll be busy just like everywhere else in the state. They have a 10 min break in pace of play that is usually enough to space out groups.
Not Quite Up to Par
I play Point Sebago about once a year when I am visiting in Maine. I will not play it in the summer as it tends to be overrun with tourists whose golf abilities are not always that good. It is a great layout and changes looks at different sections of the course. It can be very challenging from the back tees and yet very fair from the forward tees. This past winter of severe damage to the grass was especially tough on PS. Several greens were devastated and were not responding to the reseeding. Three parallel fairways on the front 9, the 4th through 6th, were muddied, grassless messes when I played them. It was hard to believe they were coming back to full form anytime soon. I hate to see that type of damage from nature's wrath. I like the 7th hole, a challenging, 3 shot, par 5. It has a hazard down the left side and OB over the road on the right. The 18th is an equally challenging par 5, with a sneaky hazard in front of the green that grabs a lot of balls. This course could achieve greatness, but it does cater to the guests at the associated "outdoor resort" that specializes in "affordable vacations." I have no issue with that, and I am fine with playing the course in the off season to avoid most of the busy days of slow play. If you find yourself vacationing in the Sebago/Naples/Bridgton area, this would be one of the top golf choices. Just plan on a full day on the links.
