Golf Course Information
Samoset's 18-hole championship golf course will delight both the serious and recreational player. The course meanders along the coast and through the woods, boasting seven oceanside holes and ocean vistas from 14 holes. The golf complex includes a clubhouse with an indoor/outdoor grille, golf range, practice green, short game facility with bunkers and private or group instruction.
Designed by Robert Elder in 1902, Samoset Resort celebrated its centennial year in 2002. The course features some of the most spectacular views of Penobscot Bay, with a granite seawall separating the golfer from the Atlantic Ocean. Samoset Resort was also a qualifying event on the former Nike Tour. Recent upgrades by Maine architect Bradley Booth have strengthened the resort's reputation of having a premier championship layout.
In addition to the newer 18th, the par-five 4th, Samoset's legendary signature hole that plays alongside Penobscot Bay, has undergone extensive enhancements to the green and surrounding area. The hole now boasts an impressive stone seawall that encompasses the contoured green with added bunkers and elevation. Coupled with the redesigned 185-yard par-three 5th hole (formally a par-four), featuring a demanding uphill slope and a tee box located directly above the seawall on Penobscot Bay, playing to a heavily bunkered bank to front sloping green, the golf course has certainly increased its ability to challenge golfers.
