Samoset Course Highlights
Pebble Beach of the East
, and characteristic of what Maine lovers love best about Maine, the rocky coastline, and nearby islands in picturesque harbors plied by Schooners and lobsterman, are the backdrop for this well regarding Course. Samoset consistently ranks near the top of Golf Digest’s Most Beautiful and Best Resort Course lists. Designed by Bob Elder in the late ‘70s and remodeled in the ‘80s by Geoffrey Cornish and most recently by Ogunquit based Brad Booth. The Booth alterations were to the signature 4th hole (arguably one of the prettiest anywhere) and 5th to convert it from an unassuming par-4 to near perfect par-3. The redesigned and well-bunkered green of the fourth now backs up to a newly built seawall and the mile-long Rockland Breakwater and lighthouse beyond. You can make par depending on your state of mind, if you either concentrate on your game and not the view or concentrate on the view and let the golf take care of itself! The 180-yard fifth plays slightly uphill to a large diagonally oriented green guarded front right by a formidable cluster of bunkers. Numbers 11, 12, and 13 offer an interesting par 3-5-3 sequence that includes water, trees and more water. All of which lead up to the 435 yard dogleg-left par 4 sixteenth, with its long narrow green and deserving of its number one handicap ranking.
