The Bowdoin College golf team was instituted in the early 1900's and is one of the school's longest- running varsity teams. The squad has enjoyed a rich tradition of success, competing well at the State and Regional level.
The Polar Bears play between 7-8 events each fall season, mostly in the State of Maine- one of the most underrated golf locations in the country. Winners of numerous CBB and Maine State Championships, the team also competes at the NESCAC Tournament against their traditional conference rivals. The College sponsors both a men's and women's team, and carries from 10-15 players.
The Polar Bear women enjoyed a strong fall campaign in 2007 under first-year coach Stacy Wilson. Bowdoin played in four tournaments, highlighted by a season-ending scramble at the Brunswick Golf Course, in which Bates edged Bowdoin by three strokes. With a young and energetic squad, the future of the women's golf program at Bowdoin is extremely bright.
The Polar Bears play their home matches at Brunswick Golf Club. The challenging, par-72 layout is considered by many to be the best course in Mid-Coast Maine. Just a par-five away from campus, the course gives the Bowdoin squads ample opportunities for practice and play and is also open to the public.
