There isn't a whole lot that far down east. You have DR in Orrington (just south of Bangor) and Hapana in Trenton. Most of the courses are near Augusta. You can reach more if you camp at Troll Valley in Farmington or the Desert of Maine in Freeport or Beaver Brook in Monmouth.

Yes, all courses in Maine are private/pay-to-play. Each course charges $5-10 a day. We've come to accept it and we have quality courses with pro shops to show for it.

If you've only got one day to spend disc golfing I'd recommend Sabattus. They have multiple courses that are incredibly well maintained and manicured, and the plot of land is stunningly beautiful. I did a road trip to the Northeast last month and was very impressed with Maine's courses. Id also recommend if at all possible to stop in Massachusetts on your way home and play Maple Hill. Its far and away the best course I've yet to play, and the staff and locals were very friendly and they also allow onsite camping. Have fun buddy!

FYI, if you're traveling to Bar Harbor you might be better off getting off 95 in Augusta and taking Rt 3 eastbound into Acadia. Bonus: Right where you turn off in Augusta is Porcupine Ridge, which is an awesome course in the state.

I played Dragan Field in Auburn a couple weeks ago, and really liked it. Very well maintained and a lot of fun.

The locals did recommend Sabattus, but it was not convenient for me to hit.

Sabattus is one of my favorites, it's worth the time to get there.
