Sunday River Golf Club

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2005

Sunday River Golf Club is home to one of the most spectacular and scenic courses in New England, laid out by renowned golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones Jr. The design features 18 breathtaking holes that wind through the Maine woods and over dramatic elevation changes in a stunning mountainside setting.

Overlooking the Sunday River Valley with the Mahoosuc range towering above, the course follows the natural topography of the landscape while striking a good balance between challenge and playability. This excellent tree-lined parkland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.
