Est. 1896

Cape Arundel Golf Club, founded in 1896 as the Kennebunkport Golf Club, is a private members' club that welcomes public play. It is known for its scenic beauty, laid out alongside Grist Mill Pond (reservoir) on the Kennebunk River, just a mile north of Kennebunkport, Maine.

This Walter Travis design links-style course, measuring just 5,900 yards from the tips, is a shotmaker’s dream with small greens, rolling terrain and tidal creeks. Always excellently presented, the course is renowned for the quality of its greens.
