Michael W Sweeney

I grew up playing golf in Philadelphia and I have now lived in New York City for 30+ Years. As a member of Yale Golf Club and the Travis and Raynor Societies, I appreciate the classic courses of the Northeast USA. As an Overseas Member at Enniscrone Golf Club in Ireland, I see the need for occasional “upgrades” by modern architects such as Donald Steel’s work at Enniscrone.

I have played all over the Met Area (NYC), New England, and Philly but now my focus is turning to the great and below the radar courses overseas. I am also enjoying Military Golf Courses as I have a son, my #1 golf partner, in the United States Navy. Finally, I have an Autistic son, and I like to play simple 9 holes courses with him. #FlyNavy #AeternusUmbra

This is simply a fun golf course with unique holes, easy walk, and arguably a Top 10 set of greens via Walter Travis. The course exemplifies the Maine spirit of golf as t...
