The year 1921 was the beginning of the Penobscot Valley Country Club, as we know it today. The "McNulty Farm" was purchased and the farmhouse transformed into a clubhouse in 1924. The international renowned architect Donald J. Ross was engaged to design and build the magnificent golf course.

A brand new Clubhouse, built in 2001, boasts a year round, full-service kitchen, ballroom with spectacular views overlooking the golf course, a meeting room perfect for executive meetings or intimate private parties, and a cozy "grill" room complete with a full-service bar next to an inviting fireplace. The upper level of the clubhouse also offers two balconies for those "perfect" summer days and evenings. On the lower level of the clubhouse are our luxurious locker rooms, a full service Golf Shop, and even a card room. An outdoor, heated swimming pool with a poolside Snack Bar completes the new facility.

The Club offers an ideal all-around recreational and social facility for the entire family. Penobscot Valley Country Club presents a handsome sight from the highway with its rolling fairways, attractive clubhouse, and stately trees adding a touch of grandeur to the surroundings.

More than eight decades of history in Orono has truly made Penobscot Valley Country Club "A Maine Tradition."


The golf operation is fully staffed from 6:30am until dusk during the golf season. The Golf Shop will remain open for business from 7:00am until 7:00pm.
