Course Overview

Maidstone’s glorious edge-of-the-Atlantic location is once again fully evident, thanks to a recent restoration by Coore & Crenshaw. Maintaining coastal dunes is an art form: expose too much sand and it blows away; cover it up and you lose a sense of place. Maidstone has struck the perfect balance. Adding to the pleasure of its romantic location is an exceptional set of Willie and John Park greens, many of which feature dramatic false fronts. Maidstone is a dream course to play regularly, in part because its asks change daily with the weather. (Photo: Patrick Koenig)

3 things to know

  • Hole everyone talks about

    No. 14, par 3, 152 yards: Views of the Atlantic abound at Maidstone, but the incredible scenic reveal of the 14th is unmatched. After putting out on the par-5 13th, you begin the ascent to the 14th tee, where you’re treated to a sweeping vista of the course, ocean and sky like no other.
  • Best non-golf amenity

    Maidstone’s Beach Club is the ultimate post-round hang, especially when you’re sipping the club’s signature “Maidstone” cocktail.
  • Insider tip

    For a full day of sporting fun, check out Maidstone’s epic tennis facility, which features grass, clay and hard courts. And don’t miss the club’s fantastic 9-hole East course — an excellent warm-up for the main event or as a bet-settling cooldown afterward.
