Overview
More
Under New Ownership & Management Old Marsh Country Club is a semi-private, 18 hole, championship golf course located in Wells, Maine. The club was designed by Brian Silva and built in 2008 as an homage to the golden age stylings of C.B. Macdonald and Seth Raynor. In its very first year of operation it was ranked “Top 10 Best in America” by GOLF Magazine and is consistently ranked in the Top 25 Courses in New England by New England Golf Monthly. In 2017, the NEW Old Marsh opened their World-Class practice facility, which allows players to enhance their game even more! This facility is something we are VERY proud of, and we know you will be too. Stay tuned for more great updates to the facility, golf course, and overall experience of the NEW Old Marsh!!

I vacation in Maine every summer, and always looked forward to playing this course at a reasonable rate. This course isn't worth $75 for 18 or $50 for 9 holes, especially at 4pm. There are courses in the area that are just as nice and...More

Hi 33donaldh66 Thank you for your review. Old Marsh is a tough track if you haven't seen it. It is certainly target golf, which is characteristic of the designer, Brian Silva. As for overpriced, I'm not sure that is entirely accurate. Old Marsh is priced...More

I had golfed at three other courses recently and the conditions were just ok, I was totally amazed at the unbelievable conditions at Old Marsh. The fairways were like there was padding under the grass. If you are in the area, go there. Wonderful course.More

Not my favorite course. The 10th hole is weird and we were told to start on the back nine so didn't have a clue what to expect. Did become more comfortable as we went along but...

This course is in great shape. Greens hold up well on shots from Fairway. Happy with the speed of the greens. Course is well-maintained. The only criticism that I would offer would be that they are working while you're on the course.

I've played this course three times in the last year and I love it! Staff is great, very friendly. On the third hole I chipped in for a birdie and the head greens keeper was watching, drove up and high fived me, he was great....More

OMCG is an interesting Brian-Silva-designed course that is at the same time, enjoyable, frustrating, and odd. First, the goods. OM has an excellent practice area with an 18-hole putting green, and a wide hitting net, which you can easily kill an hour or more on....More

You used to feel as if you were away from the maddening crowds when you played this course, prior to the last few years. Now they can't build houses fast enough, so instead of looking out over nature, you're staring into someones living room. The...More

Course in good shape. Fast greens roll well. Lots of slope. Hit it straight and keep the ball in play or you will pay dearly. Number of blind shots mean you need to trust your swing. Course surrounded by homes and signage could be improved....More
