Prepare to be amazed by the quality of the golf experience you will receive in the County. One of the best kept golfing secrets in the State of Maine, imagine a place where you could play a different golf course every day for over a week, never make a tee time, and enjoy prices that won't break the bank. I am talking about the Crown of Maine from Island Falls to Fort Kent, home to eleven different courses that are all open to the public.
"The Courses in Aroostook County had interesting layouts that used the hilly terrain to maximum effect, both for challenge and views. The county should be on every golfer's list, great golf and great value."
–David Irons, New England Journal of Golf
Va-Jo-Wa Golf Club
Located in Island Falls, Va Jo Wa was carved out on the rolling terrain of Northern Maine. The first nine holes was originally built in 1964 by Vaughan Walker. The second nine was designed and built by Vaughan's son, Warren, and opened in 1989. Va Jo Wa continues to remain family owned and operated. The course will challenge and delight golfers of every skill level. The front nine is in a valley along side Pleasant Lake and features four water holes. The back nine weaves upward offering spectacular views of Mt. Katahdin, hills and valleys. You will use every club in the bag before your round is done.
