First trip to Bar Harbor and a friend strongly recommended I play the Herbert Leeds course. Very well conditioned and enjoyable. Good layout with numerous blind shots and plenty of movement in the greens. Second trip round the course would be much easier. The pro and staff were extremely helpful with tee time and rentals. Played late Saturday in 2... More

One of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses you will ever find. The views are beautiful and the staff is wonderful. The Pro, Peiter DeVos, is one of the best for the area.

Kebo Valley Golf Club is a classic - that remains as one of the best courses in Maine. The greens have been in great shape each year I play, and the course is challenging, yet fun. I manage to make to the course at least every couple of years. I plan on going back - many more times!

Gorgeous golf course with a friendly staff. This course is the eighth oldest golf course in America according to a recent newspaper. As for the views as you walk or ride they are amazing. The course is well kept. I found it very reasonable for the level of green and fairway they have. The greens are pro/am fast so if... More

A gorgeous, really old course where it's hard to concentrate on the game with the scenery shrieking "look at me!" But the course plays charming tricks - a rocky rill tossed my ball onto the green, and a huge pine tree deflected one drive to center fairway. Go in the late afternoon to take your time and revel in the... More

The golf course itself is very well manicured as groundskeepers were busy on multiple holes maintaining its beauty and are courteous to players when on the tees and greens. Kebo Valley provides a great backdrop to the scenic mountains of Acadia National Park and it's set in an area which provides golfers the opportunities to work on their game playing... More

Nice track, great scenery. Pricey for club rentals and golf cart to add on to green fees! I am big on customer service and this was really lacking in the Pro Shop and with the cart girl. No place for even a coffee until 11 am? The best part was the great cabby we had from the harbour! Greens are... More

Not a bad place at all for golf.... you would never think there would be a gold course in Bar Harbor, but it's there and it's worth playing at least one round.

Kebo Valley is a great way to enjoy your visit to Bar Harbour & Acadia National Park. It is only a few minutes from the downtown of the village, and right on the way to Cadillac Mountian. You can literally golf in the morning and enjoy the park all the rest of the day. Pro shop staff was great, we... More

I played Kebo Valley today. It is literally five minutes from Main Street in Bar Harbor, and it is a very cool track. The course is in excellent conditions and is tucked up against mountains, making for great views and elevation changes. The greens are fast and challenging. The course is relatively short -- 6,100 yards par 70 -- but... More
