3. Webhannet Golf Club

As members all say, the greens might be too slow and the pins might be placed too easily, but this remains the best golf club in southern Maine, bar none.

A generally OK course. $40 to walk and $60 with a cart midweek. I walked and found that to be easy to do for a healthy person. Some elevation changes but...
