Maine Golf Resorts

A view of a green protected by bunkers at Samoset Resort Golf Club

Wherever you find mountains for ski hills – Vermont, Colorado, northern Michigan, Maine – you’ll find great golf. Maine stands above that crowd, however, with a beautiful coastline to match its majestic mountains, making it an ideal place to play the game. Its two most famous golf resorts – Sugarloaf in the Carrabassett Valley and Samoset Resort in Rockport overlooking Penobscot Bay – exemplify the stunning scenery of both locales. There are other golf retreats sprinkled throughout the state, from Point Sebago, A Cove Resort, to the charming Bethel Inn Resort, Sunday River and Boothbay Harbor Oceanside Golf Resort. The golf season may be short, but it’s Maine’s rugged, natural beauty that will keep you coming back.
