6 Maine Golf Courses That Will Make You Happy

Golfing In Central Maine Is Beautiful

April 12th, 2016 by Roy Forsberg

At one of the Maine Golf Courses, the golf pro asks his student “what do you do if you are in a lightning storm while on the golf course?” The student says “run for cover.” The pro says “no, you stand on the course and hold up a one iron because not even God can hit a one iron.” Badump bump!

Personally I like to get out on the links. The fresh air. The beauty of the courses. The exercise (I carried my clubs). Very invigorating. But boy can it be frustrating too! Tell me – how many of you have said “why do I play this game?” But all it takes is hitting a few good shots on the last few holes to make you think you’ve figured it out. It makes you happy and you come back. Alas, as the owner/Innkeeper at the Maine bed and breakfast, Wolf Cove Inn, I haven’t picked up a club since 2013. Our guests keep us pretty busy during golf season! I’ll be happy living vicariously through you.
