The longest hole on the course is # 18, a par-5 that plays to 608 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 17, a par-3 that plays to 161 yards from the back tees.

The course closed in 2019.

Following the 2018 passing of owner Charlie Crowley, the Bar Harbor Golf Course has been listed for sale for $2,490,000.

The course was run by the late Charlie Crowley, who died in July 2018. He had been the General Manager and Superintendent of the course for 35 years.

Paul Crowley, Charlie’s brother, said that the family doesn’t intend to open the course in 2019 because the family members don't live near the course and can't run it. Someone would have to buy it and keep it a golf course in order for it to stay open
