Residents of Highland Lake in Bridgton know a good thing when they see it - and when it comes to golf they only need to look the short distance up to "the Highlands". Need to slow down and enjoy some great golfing in northern New England? Bridgton Highlands Country Club in western Maine is tops.
Bridgton Highlands is well-groomed, interesting and challenging. And the view from the first hole is spectacular: Shawnee Peak Ski Area at Pleasant Mountain, Mt. Kearsarge North, Mount Washington and the much of the Presidential Range.
Designed by A. W. Tillinghast in 1925, Bridgton Highlands was a nine-hole par 37 course. Today, due to an expansion in the 1990s, it boasts an 18-hole par 74 layout with 4 sets of tees, making it playable for golfers of all abilities. Ponds on some of the holes bring shot making strategy into the mix. With tree-lined fairways, the course takes advantage of the natural lay of the land.
Open early May through October, you can enjoy your own game or take part in one of the many group golfing opportunities including Sweeps, Scotch 4-somes, Scrambles, Men's Group, Ladies Day, Twilight League and Daily Wolf Pack. Throughout the season, Bridgton Highlands is host to several tournaments including the 19th annual Bridgton Hospital Benefit Golf Tournament on September 9, 2009.
The clubhouse is the perfect place to start and finish your golf experience. Tennis, cart rentals, a driving range for members only, and a pro shop are part of the amenities at Bridgton Highlands Country Club. Call the pro shop at 207.647.3491 to reserve your tee time.
