The Poland Spring golf course is an 18-hole par 71 championship layout with a slope of 124 measuring 6,178 yards. Fifteen holes have views of the White Mountains and/or lakes. Enjoy velvet bent grass greens, well-maintained fairways, ponds, and tees for all abilities.
The first 9 holes were originally designed by Arthur Fenn (the first American-born professional golfer and course architect) and then Donald Ross of Pinehurst Fame would redesign the course to an 18-hole championship course. Later, Walter Travis also left his mark on Poland Spring. All three are big names in America’s golf history.

There are many pollutants indoors that can make people sick: mold and moisture, radon, asbestos, lead, PCBs, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, as well as contaminants in private well water. Because U.S. citizens spend an average of 90% of their time indoors, there is significant cause for concern for the health and safety of our population. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency indicates that the #1 environmental health threat in the U.S. today is indoor air pollution.
The Maine Indoor Air Quality Council (MIAQC) is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to creating healthy, environmentally-sustainable indoor environments through education, communications, and advocacy. The Council is the #1 educator in Maine of professionals of all types on practical strategies to design, construct, operate, maintain, investigate, and remediate buildings. We educate members of the public on strategies to improve the IAQ in their own homes. And we advocate in the public arena for a policy infrastructure that supports healthy IAQ for all buildings types, including homes, workplaces, and schools. We also raise funds to pay for fixing radon problems in low-income Maine homes.
