Pros: This course is tucked away on a beautiful piece of land outside the city of August. This course has a lot of pros.

1. Excellent, brand new cement tee pads for both the long and short positions.

2. Excellent shot variety, both open, wooded, left to right, and right to left, uphill, downhill....basically everything you need for a challenging course.

3. The baskets are brand new and in excellent condition and there are nice bridges and seats on every hole.

4. The clubhouse is awesome! food and drink for a price, awesome rocking chairs and a deck for relaxation. 5. Some of the open holes actually have the 10 meter circle cut lower to help you gauge the distance of your putt. Overall, this is a great course and definitely worth visiting. The owners of this land definitely take excellent care of this course.

Also, a lot of the baskets are set on minor elevation changes with a lot of pine needles around. Make sure you place your upshot nicely if you want to make par.
Cons: None.
Other Thoughts: This course is tucked away nicely and is a great place to play a beautiful round, then kick up your feet and chill out on the porch in a rocking chair.

Oh, and I actually saw a porcupine near the brush-line off of hole 4!!!

Pros: Beginning with hole 6, the layout is exceptional. Lots of variety, interesting and unique holes, elevation, and beautiful scenery. The course has a nice clubhouse as well as nice signs & pads at every hole. As you'd expect at a new course, the baskets are in great shape.
Cons: The field holes (1-5) need some work to make them more interesting. There are at least three (16% of the course!) where you throw straight at the basket.
Other Thoughts: Well worth the trip if you are within a couple hours of here, or if you can add it to a road trip with the other highly rated courses near 95. This is a great course, and I predict it will evolve into 4.5 stars as they figure out what to do with the open fields. $5 was very fair for such a gorgeous property.

Pros: This course is my absolute favorite in the area to play. When I play with my boyfriend he gets the challenge he seeks from the back tees and I can play right along with him on a course more my speed from the white tees. Its scenic and naturally beautiful, vastly different types of terrain with the first 5 field holes to the wooded holes also plenty of elevation changes, lots of old growth trees and a nice brook that winds its way through the course. Being new everything is top notch from the baskets to the uniquely shaped concrete tee pads. The owners are super friendly and the clubhouse is beautiful has all the amenities one could want.
Cons: tough question...I cant think of much with the exception of some prickly bushes if you throw off of the fairway but the fairways are wide enough were you really should not be in there anyhow.
Other Thoughts: brand new this year and the word has to get out. This course is fantastic and is a must play for all!!!

 A Must Play Course in Maine

Pros: Both the Long boxes and the Short Boxes present challenging shots. Even with 2 sets of boxes, the shots are not just short vs. long, they are COMPLETELY different angles and shots. The owners are exceptionally nice people who honestly value input from others. FAMILY FRIENDLY course, and a cool course dog! BEAUTIFUL club house, and a great walk in the woods!
Cons: Could use some distance signs for the White Tees.
Other Thoughts: Tough to find anything negative to say about this course. The owners are truly interested in raising the bar for what should be expected from courses in Maine. This was a great experience to play, and I look forward to going back again!
