100 GREATEST/BEST IN STATE SCORES

“A semi-private Walter Travis design on the Maine shoreline, Cape Arundel is well-known for being the Bush's course. It is among the best courses in Maine and features a wonderful set of greens in a beautiful setting, with rivers running throughout. This is a very fun par 69 course for all players, tipping out at just 5900 yards from the back tees."

“Cape Arundel is a time capsule of what golf was probably like in the early parts of the previous century. The property is small and compressed, leading to modern equipment making a lot of the challenge of this course obsolete. But players could make a case study of the green complexes and make it worth the trip alone. They are bold and unique, and having slightly slower green speeds allows for very fun pin locations to vary the play."

“Great old school club. Worth every effort to play!"
4 / 8
“If you're looking for a classic, this is it. Perhaps the best set of greens in the northeast. Despite the lack of length, a good test of golf with a million ways to shot-make around the greens. Charm and character off the charts, and you just might meet a US President on any given day."
