About Kebo Valley Club

Kebo Valley Club, is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Bar Harbor, Maine.

Kebo Valley Club is the 8th oldest course in the U.S. The first six holes, designed by H.C. Leeds, were completed in 1891. Three additional holes were added in 1896. In 1920, Kebo acquired 40 additionl acres of land east of Harden Farm Road, and opened the "outer" nine holes, completing the 18-hole layout.

The terrain at Kebo Valley is hilly and the greens are small. This course was designed with the Scottish links-style in mind. Nine holes were built on open meadows at the foot of the mountains. The wind frequently comes into play, so proper club selection becomes an important part of the game. The signature hole is #8, a 435-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot up a dogleg left fairway, then an uphill approach shot to the green. In addition, a creek meanders down the entire left side of the fairway, and the green is sloped from back to front. Walter Hagen played this course in the 1920's and rated this hole amongst the toughest eighteen holes he had ever played.

Kebo Valley Club plays to a par-70 and 6,131 yards from the back tees. The forward tees are set and 5,473 yards and play to a par-72.

Nice, old-fashioned layout with great views of the mountains of Acadia National Park. If you are a golfer visiting Bar Harbor, this course is a must. Good mix of fun and challenging holes, and enough length and difficulty to test low handicappers from the back tees. It had only been open for the season for a few weeks when I played, but the conditions were very good.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

This is semi-private course. Attitude of staff is that members are the only ones that really count.
