Rich in tradition, endless in surprises, incapable of being mastered, Kebo never loses its attraction. A source of pride for Bar Harbor, Kebo is located on Mount Desert Island, bordering Acadia National Park. Kebo is a living entity to the people who challenge its fairways. Its face and character constantly change with the seasons, the wind conditions, and even with the daily movement of the sun. Consistent with these conditions, Kebo Valley Club is an excellent back drop for championship golf!
