    The charm of Poland Spring is in the history of the club. Adding to the charm is the Maine Golf Hall of Fame which resides on the same property. First time visitors to the course will certainly want to visit the Hall of Fame. The building it resides in was used at the Chicago World's Fair in 1934. After the Fair the building was disassembled and moved to Maine by train in 19 days.
    The Poland Spring Golf Course is an early Donald Ross design. Although the course has a simplistic layout you can feel the history.
    Almost all the greens are circular and on the smallish size. The largest green is the 18th.
    Most fairways are very forgiving and allow quite a bit of room to wander.
    The front nine is short consisting of 6 par 4s and 3 par 3s. The back nine has only one par 3 and two par 5s.
    My favorite holes are #6 and #7. Hole #6 is a picturesque par 3 over a pond. The par 4 7th is the only dogleg on the course and bends to the right around the shoreline of a large pond.
    We walked Poland Spring as the course was very wet from rain on previous days. Although the appearance of the course would lead one to believe it to be a mild walk it is generally an uphill walk toward the clubhouse which can bring out a decent sweat.
   
    Please read the review on "Maine" for further details on the Maine Golf Hall of Fame.
