It was back to The Samoset for the first time in 9 years yesterday and boy it didn’t disappoint! The course was in amazing condition for October in Maine. The greens were firm and fast and man was the wind blowing!
Originally a nine holer built in 1902, it was redone in 70s by Robert Elder, then received updates from Jeffery Cornish in 90s, and Bradley Booth in 2000 according to the website. It’s set on scenic Penobscot Bay and was the inspiration for my “Penobscot Bay” course (which doesn’t do it justice, I think I need a major overhaul one that one!). Just a beautiful course and a treat to play.
Here are 3rd tee, 4th tee, 4th green with the Breakwater, 14 approach, 15 tee.
