One of the more exclusive courses in Maine, Portland Country Club is a private Donald Ross course just north of the downtown area with terrific views of Casco Bay. The first tee box is set directly in front of the club patio, meaning your tee shot on the short par-4 opener will likely have a few spectators. In 2017, the club restored many of the Ross features, including the greens, which have plenty of slope and often severely penalize a short-sided miss. The second green is heavily canted from right to left and is perhaps the most dramatic on the course. Any approach landing in the right side of the green will feed down to the left, or if played with a bit too much spin, will roll well off the front of the green. The front nine is more exposed, while the back plays through tree-lined corridors before opening back up for the final few holes.
