One of the country's northernmost Donald Ross designs, Penobscot Valley dates back to 1924. The layout has an open, links-style feel with nearly every hole visible from all parts of the property. Not overly long, the course defends itself with thick rough, deep bunkers and daunting Ross greens. Penoby, as the locals call it, has a strong set of par 3s, including the fourth and 14th, the latter of which is only 150 yards but has a tiny green that slopes off on all sides into deep-faced bunkers. Over the years, the course has hosted Hall of Famers Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Patty Berg.
