Norway Country Club is Maine's Most Scenic 9 Hole Golf Course! Designed by George Dunn in 1929 this 9 hole gem, with its tall pines and hardwoods, has something for golfers of all ages. From high on the 1st tee, where one can see the White Mountains through the signature hole # 5, golfers can test their skill and enjoy the game.
The present clubhouse is on one of the oldest properties in town, being the land that Jeremiah Hobbs purchased form Henry Rust in 1786. First a cabin was built, then he erected the two story house which was taken down in the 1940's and was referred to as the "Old Mills Place."
Jeremiah Hobbs, after his sale to Mills, built a one story farmhouse westward on the hill where the club buildings are located. In 1851, Hobbs sold to James Nason.
Allen S. Bartlett secured the farm on parcels not otherwise cared for and transferred the property to Benjamin Whitehouse, Jr. in 1855. Whitehouse sold to Asa Mathews an 1859.
Some time ago, the buildings burned and after this. There were numerous owners until Louisa R. Quint secured the property and erected the present buildings on the solid ledge where Hobbs second rambling homestead stood. After 1888, the place was known as "Hazelhurst," (undoubtedly named for a doctor Hazelton who owned the property).
George M, Bachelder carried on a dairy farm there until it was sold to the Norway Home Building Association in 1929. Shortly after this purchase, the Association transferred the property to the new Country Club.
