Built in the early 1920’s, the front nine was a favorite of the celebrities who came as summer stock for the historic Lakewood Theatre. It is a classic links layout, with some of the most challenging holes in the state. The challenge continues with the back nine, designed by famed New England Golf Course designer, Phil Wogan. Completed in 1995, the beautiful, well maintained 18 hole course combines distinctive holes, including Maine’s only par 6, with amazing scenery and views of Lake Wesserunsett in one direction and Sugarloaf and the Western Mountains in the other, to offer a great golfing experience for all skill levels.

Swim in the same clear waters where Fay Wray and Mary Rogers swam. . . Hear the romantic call of loons emanating from Lake Wesserunsett, just as Betty White and Alan Ludden did when they honeymooned here. . . Savor a sumptuous dinner at nearby Lakewood Inn Restaurant, perhaps sitting at the "Bette Davis table". . . Take in a play next door at Lakewood Theatre, where guests like Walt Disney and Amelia Earhart were entertained by actors such as Groucho Marx and Sally Rand. . .
