Founded in 1896 as the Kennebunkport Golf Club, Cape Arundel Golf Club was created by summer residents and golf enthusiasts who wanted to bring their love of the game home. In the 1920s Walter Travis, the grand old man of American golf, designed and laid out the first 18-hole iteration of the course. Every hole was planned carefully by Travis and promised to provide first class golf, beauty, and difficulty. From the natural hazards and beautifully contoured greens to the perfectly placed bunkers and strategic layout, the new course demanded the finest kind of golf.
Our popular annual tournament to support the Society’s outreach programs is held at the Cape Arundel Golf Course and is followed by a barbecue, awards, and door prizes at the 19th hole.
