The Kennebunkport area is known for its golf. If you’re hoping to get in a round or more, you’ll be happy to learn there are a variety of Kennebunkport golf courses to choose from. Experience a century old course near the beach – or maybe you’d prefer a game on President Bush’s preferred local green?
Those and others are all within easy reach of our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast, Captain Jefferds Inn.
While only one of the courses listed below actually has a Kennebunkport address, they’re all within just a few minutes of town.
They are not the only golf courses in the Kennebunkport area, either. Just some of those that are close and that many guests have enjoyed before. For those willing to drive a bit further from the Kennebunks, there are many excellent courses. The Ledges and Dunegrass are a couple that to come to mind.
