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.
