Located in Orono Maine, Penobscot Valley Country Club has hosted numerous important tournaments since the club was established in 1924. Peter nominated Penobscot Valley as a gem in November 2015 and his comments follow:
“Penobscot Valley Country Club is a Donald Ross design and was built in 1924. It is a par 72 at 6,445 yards and feels as if it’s longer. In 2008 it was restored with over thirty bunkers and two greens rebuilt.
There is not a weak hole on the course that has hosted the Maine State Amateur ten times. What I like most about Penobscot Valley is the outstanding variety of its holes. Ross fitted it into its terrain beautifully and aside from the shaping of the greens, it is as natural a layout as you’ll find.”
