Planning trip to southern Maine, spend much time looking for courses to play. Ledges had some great reviews, including Golf Digest. So it went on the list. We played 2 days - but more about that later.

Great course, great staff, and even great food at the club house (the best Reuben Sandwich (with drunken sauerkraut - beer added), and onion rings we've had) . I found all the holes to be challenging and a lot of fun to play. The view and setting was fantastic. Each hole had is own character carved out of hills. The course was meticulous; with grounds keepers all over.

The front nine was my favorite all the 3 courses we played this week - Ledge, Outlook and Old Marsh. All 9 holes were special. Rolling hills allows to chase balls up to many greens. Some short par 4's required good course management. No need to bring the driver to every tee box.

The par 3, 8th is truly scenic. Its the picture on their web site. 170-180 yds straight downhill with a pond on the left. My best hole - 10 ft from the each day. Missed the putt both days also :(

We played two days as a storm came as we were finishing the front nine on day one. I was having a Caddyshack 'priest' day, and didn't want to stop. But sadly, they maybe us stop because of lightning in the area. That gave us time to talk with the staff at the pro shop and restaurant. Great people. Helpful and friendly. Anyway, got a raincheck for 9 holes and came came back a few days later - the drizzle again on the front nine felt like we hadn't left. Sun came out for the back 9. Knowing the front nine from day 1, helped on day 2 as tee shot placement was important.

Bottom-line: play Ledges. You'll want to play it again. I know I do.

The course was in great shape, with only a few areas that needed some recovery from the weather. Everyone we met was very helpful and pleasant to deal with, the course was obviously well-managed. Play was a slow, but the staff made efforts to move players along.

I would suggest avoiding Saturdays, which seemed to be significantly more crowded. It is a challenging course, so less-experienced players may want to move up a tee box, as some of the holes are long or more difficult.

All in all, a very nice course.

Played here many times in past. Great layout, great staff. Unfortunately this past experience not as positive as previous experiences. The fairways were in especially poor condition which was unexpected given the greens fees. Appears as though they may be experiencing financial difficulties not putting much back into the course. Quite the shame. to be honest, this course currently is not worth the money given all the other really nice courses in New England that are far less costly.

We love playing this public course! The holes are well laid out, challenging, and in a beautiful setting and the price is nice. Save time to savor your round at the 19th hole outdoor deck.

This is a very nice course; great shape; however, individuals who play here need to invest in a ball mark repair tool.

Golf shop is very nice; however, did not understand why we needed to wait 30 minutes to tee off, when there was no one in front of us and we were ready.
