Played here in a 2 day tournament. Even though I struggled with my game I really love this course. I am a big fan of old style designs and this does not disappoint. It is not impossibly hard or overly long... and there are some holes you can score on. But you better have your short game in top shape!... More

Dear Salsgang, Thank you so much for the fine review. It was Kebo's pleasure to host the Maine State Mid-Amateur tournament. The golf course was set up for some of the finest golfers in Maine, with green speeds up a notch more than normal, and pin placements fair but some tough to get to. The rule of thumb at Kebo...

We traveled to Bar Harbor recently for the destination wedding of my nephew. Many who were attending planned to arrive prior to the weekend, and so we planned for a day of "golf with the groom", on Friday before the big event.

Paid a 114.00 each for this course. the first 11 holes had the grounds crew mowing weed whacking blowing off the fairways this was at noontime. The ranger drove through Fairways tee boxes never looked. The fairways, tee boxes ,and greens are aligned in such a way they're begging for someone to get hurt.the highlight was the greens were in...

We played on a beautiful October afternoon and the course was in excellent condition. Small greens require accurate shotmaking and a strong chipping game. The club restaurant was outstanding. Great food and service has non golfers coming in take advantage of the feel good cuisine.

So, played this course today, and yes it was a nice course but I've played prettier courses down in the smoky mountains for cheaper. $100 is pricey for a course in this shape. The greens were very slow ... 9 on the stimp. Also, it was very unfriendly to women. One of the par 5s was 505 yds. which is... More

Keno Valley Golf Club is a real treasure. Built on undulating hills, it has a variety of interesting holes that alternate between user friendly and quite difficult. It can be hard for those playing the forward tees if they do not hit the ball very far. The course is maintained in very good condition. If you are looking for a... More
