The Cape Arundel Golf Club is a links-type course, many of whose fairways roll alongside the Kennebunk River which makes for a cool and scenic round of golf. Also, this is the course favored by President Bush 41 when he was still able to golf. I am not a golfer; however, I have worked as a volunteer at several tournaments held there and the players always extol the challenge and fun of playing this course. In the winter, this is a beautiful place to cross-country ski or snowshoe! Bev and I often avail ourselves of this opportunity on sunny winter afternoons.
The Webhannet Golf Club is located on the Kennebunk side of the river and it too is a beautiful rolling course offering challenging and scenic fairways. When I was a member of Rotary International, many of my fellow business associates were members at this course. I have also volunteered for tournaments at this course where participants enjoyed an afternoon of golfing followed by a barbecue. Even though I don’t play golf, it is fun to be part of tournaments.
The Dutch Elm Golf Course is located a little longer drive from our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast in Arundel, ME. They say “Give us a try! You will find the only thing better than our golf course is the friendly manner in which our staff and members will make you feel welcome.” This club seems to consist of a little more compact course than the others, but many of our guests have enjoyed playing it.
So, if you are wondering what golf courses in Maine are near the Captain Lord Mansion, we hope this blog will give you some information about really excellent courses which are only minutes from the inn. Additionally, our office staff is pleased to secure tee times for you. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
