Caribou Country Club, is a Semi-Private, 9 hole golf course located in Caribou, Maine
Caribou Country Club first opened for play in 1972. This course was designed by New England golf course architect Geoffrey S. Cornish and built on land that was formerly owned by Cyrus Maxwell and was known as the Cyrus Maxwell farm.
Caribou Country Club is gracefully carved into the rustic, northern Aroostook countryside. Although Cornish layed out an 18 hole course, only nine holes were completed. The construction went well until holes, seven, eight and nine. The Caribou Country Club ran out of money and there was poor soil as all the topsoil had been used on other holes. The 18 holes were designed and some of the wood that was cut was sold to raise money for the project. All of the fairways were laid out and in January, 2006, Mr. Cornish provided the club with a copy of the original course layout and a map of all 18 holes. The nine holes that are played now are a conglomerate of holes from the original 18-hole design. This is the reason for the long walk between the first and second holes, as well as between the fifth and sixth holes.
