Maine offers some of the best golf in the world with almost 40 courses to choose from. With a wide range of courses and prices golfers visiting the Pine Tree State can find a course for every budget and handicap.
Many of the courses offer “stay and play” packages, but what really makes Maine’s public courses stand out from other golf destinations is Maine’s Golf Concierge which is there to help you plan your golf trip or let you know where the best golf is once you arrive.
Maine’s Golf Trail and Free Golf Concierge
Maine’s Golf Trail isn’t a golf trail in the traditional sense. Instead, Maine’s free Golf Concierge service lets those visiting the state create their own personalized “trail.” This personalization is based on geography, budget or course type.
They can even offer suggestions on how to combine golf with other activities like mountain biking, whitewater rafting, or chartering a boat. They also will work to incorporate interests like eating lobster to visiting a Maine micro-brewery.
Save with Golf Maine Passports
Golfers visiting or living in Maine can take advantage of a unique program, the Golf Maine Passports program, which is designed to give golfers an inexpensive way to sample some of Maine’s finest courses.
This golf passport can be used once at each of Maine’s finest courses. However, there are restrictions at some courses with passports not being valid during certain times at specific courses, so it does require checking the specific details.
If you’re planning a trip to Maine, and hope to take advantage of Maine’s Golf Trail, you can contact them and discuss the kinds of courses that interest you and what part of the state you’ll be visiting. They will match you up with the right course for you, along with lodging, dining, and other recreational activities possible.
To learn about the course roster and pricing, you can sign up for the Golf Maine Newsletter to or check their website for updates. If you have questions, you can drop them an email at [email protected].
