"Old New England golf course with great views

If you are a golfer visiting the Schoodic Peninsula, do not miss Grindstone Neck Golf Club which is open to the public. Built in the 1890's it is a classic, rustic 9 holes, the way golf used to be before upscale amenities and pristine fairways. Most holes have stunning views of the harbor or Frenchmans Bay. The second hole plays down hill to a small green on the shore looking across the bay to the mountains on Mt. Desert Island. A view to rival Pebble Beach! ..."
