A legendary legacy of golfing in Maine
Suitable for players of all skill levels, the 18-hole championship Samoset Golf Course boasts seven oceanside holes, 14 holes with spectacular views of the Atlantic, and one of the most challenging finishing holes in New England. Golf Digest named the course the “Pebble Beach of the East” in a 2023 article. The golf complex also features a clubhouse with a golf range, practice green, short game facility with bunkers, Pro Shop and a Clubhouse Grille restaurant.
Samoset Golf Course
Considered the Samoset Golf Course’s signature hole, Hole 4 really has it all. In addition to being a dramatic par-5 dogleg left that hugs the coast and also features a beautiful seawall, the hole also boasts views of the Atlantic, Penobscot Bay, and the fairway. And when the tide is low, you might even spot seals sunning on the rocks out on the bay.
At 545 yards from the gold tee, Hole 14 is Samoset Golf Course’s longest. It’s also especially beautiful on a clear, summer day, since you might get to see schooners – which often travel to and from nearby Camden – pass directly behind the green, which is located at the water’s edge.
Samoset Golf Course’s Hole 15 is the most scenic par 4 at the Samoset, offering breathtaking views of the Penobscot Bay as well as a unique look at our signature Flume Cottage. A well placed tee shot is required, as the fairway is guarded by rocky coastline on the left and dense woods on the right. Players may consider taking an extra club with their approach shot to combat the often windy conditions around the green.
