THE COUNTY | 2017 BRING YOUR CLUBS...AND YOUR CAMERA. Experience well-groomed fairways and greens in the midst of picturesque scenery that includes stands of hardwoods, mountain and lake views, granite cliffs, and sometimes even moose. The Mars Hill Country Club offers a tee area at the 6th hole on the side of Mars Hill Mountain—with the green located 160 vertical feet below! The course is also one of a few to be rated among the top 10 percent in Northern Maine by the New England Golf Guide. The Caribou Country Club offers terrific views of the rustic countryside and the wildlife—like partridge, deer, moose, geese, and ducks—that while their way onto the course. This course has challenging play for golfers at every skill level. Friendly staffers will be happy to offer tips for playing your best round ever. Head for the Presque Isle Country Club, home to the 50th Annual Spudland Open Tournament in 2017—one of the major amateur golf events in Maine and held on the fourth weekend of July. Another excellent course is the Va Jo Wa, previously rated No. 1 public course in Maine by the New England Golf Guide—with the back 9 sitting high on a plateau overlooking Mt. Katahdin. Most courses are open May through October, but remember this is northern Maine so club open dates may vary depending on the weather.
