Kebo Valley Golf Club
Welcome to Kebo Valley Golf Club
Kebo, Rich in Tradition, Endless in Surpises, Incapable of Being Mastered, Once Played, Never Loses It’s Attraction!
Established in 1888, Kebo Valley Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Maine, and the eighth oldest golf club in the United States. Kebo has tested the skills of many of the country’s finest players, most influential politicians, and leaders of industry. Kebo includes 18 spectacular and well-maintained golf holes, each hole will challenge and excited players of any level.
President Howard Taft, U.S. Open Champion Scott Simpson, and PGA legend Billy Casper have hit drives and sank putts on Kebo Valley’s hallowed grounds. In 1911, President Taft cards a 27 on what was then the “Elbow” hole, which is today’s 17th. This hole is commonly referred to as the “Taft” hole. You will play the same holes that one of the greatest golfers of all time played, the one and only Sir Walter Hagen. It was in 1922 that Sir Walter played two rounds at Kebo Valley. With Cadillac Mountain sitting majestically in the background, Mr. Hagen first shoots an even-par 70 and then cards a course-record 67, which stood for 50 years. After Playing Kebo’s signature 8th hole Mr. Hagen stated, “The 8th hole is one of the toughest four pars I have ever played”.
The 8th Oldest Club in the Country
Richard Berzinski, a Golf Digest Ranking Panelist, reported this summer, “I have rated over 100 different golf courses throughout the United States and Canada, and I have never played a course with any better greens than I played today at Kebo!”
