Sebasco Harbor epitomizes pure, quaint Maine with patriotic jubilation abounding in July and all summer long. It feels like a big campground but with comfortable accommodations and exquisite food.
Proprietor Bill Carney offers personal greetings along with many land and sea activities for every age group, from camp Merritt for the kids to the Fairwinds Spa for adults. The Ruth, a ship built in 1935, offers tours of the fishing villages, a Pirate cruise, whale sightings and the history of lobster fishing.
The 9 hole course begins with an original hole from the 1920s, very straight forward and then number 2 strikes you with a view of Casco Bay’s inlet. It is a tough par 3 shot over water to a matchbox size green. A wooden bridge carries you to number 3, another challenging hole with a dogleg over the woods. Rock outcroppings shape tee boxes while towering pines protect both sides of the fairways as you journey through the hills and valleys of Sebasco Harbor Resort. A special addition is the three extra holes adjacent to the clubhouse. In particular, a 200 yard par 3 situated above the roadway with an elevation drop of 50 feet.
After golf, relax and cool off in the old fashioned resort pool. Whether you are looking for a romantic weekend for two or a family outing, Sebasco has plenty of activities and the friendliest staff. It is a slice of American pie, serving up coastal contentment. See www.sebasco.com.
