Let me share with you the choices you have for playing Kennebunkport area golf courses.
The most famous one is the Cape Arundel Golf Course which is located a short distance from the Captain Lord Mansion. This is the course which is a favorite of President George H.W. Bush. It is a rolling links-type of course which borders the Kennebunk River. In winter, Bev and I enjoy snowshoeing alongside the river because of the scenic beauty of this course.
The Webhannet Golf Club is also located close-by; it is across the river in Kennebunk. Founded in 1899, Webhannet is a 6100-yard par 71 course featuring serpentine fairways, tidal-fed water hazards and undulating greens that challenge and tempt golfers of all handicaps. This is another beautiful course well worth the visit and time to play.
The Dutch Elm Golf Club is located about a 10 minute drive from the Captain Lord Mansion is the nearby town of Arundel. This course is quietly situated in a rural setting, and many of the courses links are bordered by trees. This is another course that welcomes cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing in the winter.
The staff at the Captain Lord Mansion is pleased to schedule tee times for you at either of the 3 courses, as well as making sure you have carts and clubs if necessary. Also, you can practice your putting at the Mansion’s putting green. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
