Golf Getaway in Kennebunkport Maine

For many people, any getaway is not complete without a round or two of golf, and fortunately Kennebunkport Maine has a variety of courses that won’t disappoint!  No matter your skill level, there are great options just a short drive from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast.

If the beaches are calling and you don’t have time for a full 18 holes, you should check out Hillcrest Golf  Course and Driving Range. It’s the only place around with a mini-par 3 course, which means you can enjoy 9 or 18 holes without all the walking!  But even experienced golfers will enjoy the driving range and the option to work on their short game, as each hole ranges from 25 to 40 yards.  Much of the time, though, only a full-out game will do, so there are three other excellent courses in the area to make sure you’ve got plenty of options.  Just around the corner from the heart of Kennebunkport Maine, visitors will find the Cape Arundel Golf Club.  This course, designed by Walter Travis, is a bit short, but offers ample hazards and few trees, meaning more breezes to challenge your game.  It is perhps best known for being the choice course of former President Bush (41), but in my book is especially desirable for its location and ease of access.  Closer to the beach you’ll find Webhannet Golf Club.  It is conveniently located just a block from the Kennebunk beaches, which means you can drop the family off for some fun in the sun and sneak in a game without ever being missed!  Now I don’t have a clue what a 71 par course means, but hopefully you do, but apparently the front 9 are pretty tough.  And despite being just across the bridge from Kennebunkport Maine, it’s less than a five minute drive to the club, so convenience is certainly not an issue.  Now, while these are the closest spots to grab a game of golf, there are plenty of other options nearby, including (of course!) a few spots for mini-golf with the family.  Looking forward to seeing you in Kennebunkport Maine!
