About Us

Welcome to the Portland Country Club

Portland Country Club is a private, member owned Country Club, located in Falmouth Foreside Maine.

Founded as a private club by golf enthusiasts in 1895, the Portland Country Club today celebrates a deep tradition of member service and commitment to the game of golf.

Club members and their guests enjoy a timeless and nationally renowned 18-hole Donald Ross golf course, a stunning Oceanside setting, as well as exceptional country club facilities and social activities including formal and casual dining, tennis, swimming and paddle tennis.

As a result of our longstanding commitment to environmental quality and management, the Portland Country Club is proud to be the first and currently the only private Maine golf course to be designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary by Audubon International.
