Detailed description of Samoset Resort Golf Course

Samoset Resort Golf Course is a Resort 18 hole golf course located in Rockport, Maine.

Opened as a 9-hole course in 1902, Samoset Resort celebrated its centennial year in 2002. In 1974, the course was rebuilt as an 18-hole course by Robert Elder. In the early 1990's, Geoffrey Cornish improved many of the holes including 10, 11 and 18. In 2000, Bradley Booth was instrumental in redesigning and rebuilding holes 4, 5, 14, 18 and the introduction of the practice area.

In addition to the newer 18th, the par-five 4th, Samoset's legendary signature hole that plays alongside Penobscot Bay, has undergone extensive enhancements to the green and surrounding area. The hole now boasts an impressive stone seawall that encompasses the contoured green with added bunkers and elevation. Coupled with the redesigned 185-yard par-three 5th hole (formally a par-four), featuring a demanding uphill slope and a tee box located directly above the seawall on Penobscot Bay, playing to a heavily bunkered bank to front sloping green, the golf course has certainly increased its ability to challenge golfers.

Samoset's 18-hole championship golf course will delight both the serious and recreational player. The course meanders along the coast and through the woods, boasting seven oceanside holes and ocean vistas from 14 holes. The course features some of the most spectacular views of Penobscot Bay, with a granite seawall separating the golfer from the Atlantic Ocean. Samoset Resort was also a qualifying event on the former Nike Tour.

Samoset Resort Golf Course plays to a par-70 and maximum distance of 6,600 yards.
