It never ceases to amaze me. Every time I play this course it just keeps getting better and better. In my opinion there is no track anywhere in the New England area that can match Samoset Golf Course for beauty or playability. Despite the amount of rain that fell in April and early May, Gary Soule and his team have... More

Extremely well maintained course with great ocean views. Challenging but playable for all levels. Favorite hole overlooks the ocean.

First off there are an abundance of beautiful vistas throughout the round at the Samoset. The conditions are very good the management works hard and it shows.

We were here in Nov. and the restaurant was closed during the week. We enjoyed the exercise facilities and walking the grounds. We took a trip to Acadia and enjoyed restaurants in the area. We were very lucky to be here to see the super moon.

When we checked in, they asked us if we wanted to play 9 or 18. Thought this was a bit unusual, but now know why. The front nine is very scenic, but course routing is vague-had to ask directions twice, ran into another group later, with same problem. Back nine was mundane, with exception of couple of holes on water.... More

This course is phenomenal!! Best in all New England. The course is in outstanding shape (especially considering it is a resort course!) thanks to terrific course maintenance. The views of Penobscot Bay are stunning, course is fair and challenging. Beautiful gardens line the course and the staff - especially the Head Pro, Gary Soule, were friendly and incredibly helpful. He... More

golf course very scenic and in good shape-pace of play was not fast, but not unreasonable-curious as to why 3 drinks before golf were $24.00 and the same 3 at the turn were $29.00-think someone may be able to explain-golf was a very enjoyable experience-can't wait to return, but will pass on clubhouse amenities

Just finished a tremendous vacation at the Samoset Resort which I personally feel is New England's best place to vacation. Incredible views of the ocean was constantly in view from the room, hotel lobby area, and amenities such as infinity pool, kids play area and the outstanding golf course. This upscale destination place offered so much for our family with... More
