Golfing with all the president’s men!

Or at least, the president’s caddies.

Got a hankering for a round of golf while visiting the Kennebunks?

May I suggest the links where the President plays – Cape Arundel Golf Club

This semi-private club offers 18 holes of serious, professional-level golf. It is known for many things, including its beauty. The course rambles along the shores of the Kennebunk River.

It is a Walter Travis designed, links-style course that provides rentals, PGA professional clinics and group packages.

I wasn’t kidding about the President! George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president of the United States has a summer home here in Kennebunkport, as you probably know already, on Walker’s Point.  When he comes to town, the Cape Arundel Golf Club is where he plays. His son, George W. Bush, the 43nd and current president, has joined him there as well as the 42nd president, Bill Clinton.

But the accolades don’t stop there. Fred Couples played the links. And it has been selected #28 of the top 100 public courses in all of New England.

So, if you are visiting us at the Captain Lord Mansion and want to have a round of golf or two, remember, there is also lots of nice shopping just within walking distances. Wives, should your husband go off to the links, you are sure to find just the thing in one of our many lovely shops in the village of Kennebunkport. And, Husbands, should your wife be the one to hit the links, know that those lovely shops in the village of Kennebunkport will probably have that perfect anniversary present you keep forgetting to buy.
