This golf course was started by James Plourde Sr., and his son Henry Plourde.  James was a
worker at the Tannery in Howland, ME.  With the influence of his management team out of
Massachusetts and a couple of locals (Herb Vanadestine, and Tom Ware) they convinced him
that golf was going to be the next big thing in sports and he should convert his field into a golf
course.  James and Henry went to work in 1963 to build the course.  In 1964 the little nine hole
golf course was opened.  

The summer of 1975 James Plourde Jr. took over running the golf course and did so for 21
years.  The biggest change Jim did was to convert one of the easiest Par 4's into the toughest
par 4 in the state, Hole # 5.

In 1996 James Jr. sold the course to Andrew & Kim McLaughlin with their partner Gerry Clifford.  
The biggest change came In 2001, when after a couple of years of dry weather,  Andy decided to
put in a full irrigation system from tee to green.  He termed it "The Big Dig".  

In 2006 it was sold to Barnes Brook, LLC.  Since 2006 they have rebuilt all the bunkers and add
a bunch of new tees.  They are currently adding tees so that the facility will be 2400 yards from
the front tees and just over 3300 yards from the back for the long hitters.  In 2007 they installed a

Swing Golf Simulator so everyone can play or practice their golf game year round (40
different golf courses).

This golf course will test the best players and be enjoyed by the average player.  This is a golf
ball friendly golf course as well as family friendly.  We encourage all ages to play this game they
can play a lifetime.  Barnes Brook G.C. is a walking friendly golf course.  We offer rental of riding
carts with roofs for the non walkers as well.  The golf course is continually being worked on to
have some of the best playing conditions year after year.
