Default Maine in August

My wife and I are vacationing in Kennebunk, ME the 3rd week of August. What is the must play course within an hour or so?

Also I could use a recommendation for a good beginner's course.

Within an hour of Kennebunk, your best bet is Woodland Valley in Limerick. Three 18-hole courses, ranging from beginner friendly to long "pro" level. Good pro shop and a cafe on site. You could definitely spend the day.

Agreed. Lots of fun golf, and plastic to check out, there. Make sure you are well stocked with bug spray. Woodland Valley was my first real experience with biting flies. No fun at all when not prepared.

I think that beginner friendly will definitely depend on just how new we're talking. A total noob might have difficulty even on the "easier" course. The name of the facility is Woodland Valley, after all.

Default Kennebunk, ME ... within an hour or so

Woodland Valley has three courses (Black Bear the easiest, Kodiak the hardest) to challenge a wide spread of skill levels, and a great clubhouse, too.

Bittersweet Ridge has two good courses, with the South being the easier of the two.

For less woods and elevation, so a bit easier, try Pleasant Hills.

A bit out of your range, but what I consider the best in Maine, is the Sabattus complex, with multiple courses to appeal to the complete gamut of abilities.
