Maine’s Kennebec Valley is home to 11 golf courses. Ten of these are either public or semi-private allowing visitors to the region to enjoy their favorite pastime during their stay. Most courses also offer a pro-shop, restaurant, putting greens, and a practice range so you can make a day of it.
Choose from 9 holes, 18 holes, and even a 36 hole course (2 18-holes), this one requires some stamina to complete in one day. Lakewood Golf Course dates back to the 1920s when it was part of a summer colony. The Lakewood Inn Restaurant and 120-year-old Lakewood Theater are right nearby. Several courses are relatively new, such as the Meadows Golf Course in Litchfield established in 1998. Every course in Maine’s Kennebec Valley offers players the chance to get outdoors and take in the unrivaled scenery of the region.
The region also offers numerous Disc and Mini Golf courses so everyone can play.

Disc Golf Courses
Disc golf is played much like golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, though, players use a flying disc. The sport shares with golf the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest throws). A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target, which is the “hole.” The trees, shrubs, and terrain provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the “putt” lands in the basket and the hole is completed.

The sport of mini-golf can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Hit a brightly colored ball from a tee-off point into a hole in as few shots as possible. Of course, there are always a variety of interesting and tricky obstacles for players to putt through, over, under, and around! Follow a game up with an ice cream cone and summer is complete.
