Alright my New England people. Going to Portland Maine next weekend with in laws and looking to get a round in Sunday. We are staying in Portland by the airport and am looking to play within 20 minutes of there. A lot of private courses in the area but a few non, any recommendations?

Spring Meadows is nice but I haven't been there in a while, they had really nice fairways and was a decent challenge. I have heard people rave about Fallmouth CC but it is private I guess. Nonesuch river is not too bad. Take the hour drive and go play Mount Washington or Sunday River. 😄 Stop North Conway and say hi, we have a great practice facility course here.

I have an annual trip to NH and we always play North Conway, played Mount Washington as well this past year.

ended up booking at dunegrass in old orchard. Nonesuch river was one that had a tournament or something early morning unfortunately. Thanks for the suggestions!

Dunegrass isn't too bad. Somewhat narrow. I haven't been to it in about 5 years I believe. Interesting first hole. The greens were in a kind of grass rolled into mud state. Rolled fast and hard to hold at that time. I would have recommended it but it wasn't a favorite. Nice layout though. I was a much worse golfer back then though...

Over the years, multiple business trips provided opportunities to play in/around the Portland & South Portland areas. I found these to be enjoyable tests with interesting layouts & varied shot-selection options. All 'an easy drive' within 15-30 minutes of downtown Portland proper -- Old Marsh C.C. (Wells). Dunegrass (Old Orchard Beach). Nonesuch (So. Portland). Sable Oaks (So. Portland MARRIOTT). Fox Ridge (Auburn).

Unfortunately Sable Oaks is no longer a golf course which is why I didn't recommend it. I used to go out that one frequently with a friend who was a member there it was a great golf course very challenging and narrow at times. It was a fun course though even though a lot of people didn't like it because of the narrowness. I wish my track was a little more narrow and less forgiving it would make me a better golfer.

In that same general area - anyone here played Webhannet GC in Kennebunk? I got invited to go up and play there this coming weekend. Curious how it is or what their practice setup is like. Seems shorter looking at the scorecard (~6100 tipped out).
