Garland Resort in Lewiston boasts four championship courses. Swampfire is considered a true shot maker's golf course that will have you using every club in your bag. The course features carefully sculpted fairways lined by mature pines and hardwoods leading to large, gently undulating greens, most of which are raised. It's one of the tightest layouts at Garland Resort and measures 6,854 yards from the back tees, demanding both distance and accuracy off the tees. Water has a prominent role on the Swampfire course, you'll find it on 15 holes. With tricky doglegs and strategically placed bunkers also coming into play, Swampfire is easily one of the resort's toughest layouts. Though it's a challenging golf course, players of all skill levels can approach Swampfire with confidence since the toughest portions of the hazards are mostly taken out of play on the forward tees.

    Very scenic and challenging. Some hidden water hazards! Great condition. Some pin placements (#1) were unbelieveably hard. Large greens but had severe undulations and putts would easily roll off the green if you did not lay up.

    Worth the trip!!
