The Island Country Club

Deer Isle, Maine

"The best little country club in America" *
* By unanimous vote of the Board of Directors of the Island Country Club.

The Island Country Club, celebrating its 90th year in 2018, is nestled near the sea on Deer Isle, one of Maine’s most precious coastal islands. 

 

We offer an expanded 9-Hole golf course of approximately 2,400 yards (par 34) that will challenge the gifted player yet please the whole family. Tee times are set on a “first come first serve” basis. Rental clubs for adults & youth are available. We also have pull carts and a limited number of riding carts. Please call ahead to find out about league playing times and weekend tournaments or visit our golf section for more details.


Our 3 HarTru tennis courts are considered to be the best clay courts on the peninsula. You can call up to 24 hours in advance to reserve a court. For visitors, we have a special weekday afternoon rate (Mon - Fri 1pm -4pm) of only $5/person for 90 minutes of tennis. Visitors are also welcome to take part in Open Tennis, a friendly round-robin game of doubles where you will be paired up with other players, on Wednesday mornings and Sunday afternoons. Please check out our tennis pages for all the details. 


The Fairway Café, located in our Club House, is open for lunch daily from 11am - 2pm.  Our varied menu offers classic sandwiches, daily specials and includes the best lobster rolls and broiled haddock sandwich on the island. We have coffee and baked goods for breakfast, afternoon snacks and light sandwiches  and later this season will begin three nights a week of dinner service for members and their guests.  There are also frequent evening events including bridge and special dinners. Wi-Fi is available throughout the Club House.  The Pro Shop offers a wide range of golf and tennis clothing, golf and tennis accessories, and mementoes of visits to the Island Country Club. Rental clubs and rental tennis rackets also are available.
