    Since 1932, The Bath Golf Club has been through many changes. Ownership groups have come and gone, but things are shaping up differently this time.

    Led by a team from various backgrounds and backed by a group of local investors, The New Bath Golf Club aims to revitalize the property inside and out. “The course has always been a gem of Midcoast Maine. By focusing on the quality of the course and bringing out the natural beauty that surrounds it, we can highlight what everyone has always fallen in love with here in Bath,” says Leon Oliver, director of golf. “The Wayne Stiles design has always been considered a favorite. With a renewed focus on consistency and quality, we know that will continue to be the case.”

    Besides the course, the historic clubhouse is also getting a facelift. Events and Media Manager Ryan Atwood outlined some of the exciting changes.

    “We are engaging our customers and members like never before,” said Atwood. “Beyond the basic cosmetic improvements, we are excited to announce the opening of the Ship City Brew Pub. We will open early this year for golfers and the public. Big TVs, pool tables, a beautiful new rustic bar with a fresh menu; this play is going to be serious.”

    The club in Bath might draw business from all over, but it has always rooted itself in the local community. “The early support we have gotten throughout our transition has been incredible,” says General Manager Sean McCarthy. “We have a renewed drive to be community oriented, and everything we give we always receive back ten-fold. We are incredibly lucky to have the support of everyone here and we are going to remain focused on better serving our customers and our community.”

    The Bath Golf Club is located at 387 Whiskeag Rd. in Bath, Maine. You can reach the club for additional information by emailing or by calling (207) 442-8411. They are currently running numerous specials for new and returning members and golfers.
