Willie Park, Jr.
This finely maintained course has been in play for over a century. The current 9-hole par 35 layout was designed by Willie Park, Jr. in 1921. Considered "one of the greatest golf architects of all time;" Park said the Castine course was one of his best. Famous for taking advantage of the natural terrain, Park's design presents nine holes on Windmill Hill across from the Revolutionary War era Fort George and overlooking Castine Harbor and Blue Hill in the distance.
The fairways are generous, and the greens undulate and are usually elevated above the fairways. You will use every club in your bag and wish you had more during a round of golf "as it should be." Sound strategy and uncommon sense will help save a few strokes.
