Former liquor producer buys Boothbay CC

From staff reports

Boothbay Country Club was bought by Paul Coulombe of Southport, who has hired Harris Golf of Bath to manage it.

The course was in foreclosure. Coulombe, former owner of White Rock Distilleries of Lewiston, has long supported endeavors in the Boothbay region.

"It's worth saving," said Coulombe in a press release. "I feel the club is a critical component of our community that attracts both out-of-state visitors and Maine residents."

Harris Golf owned the course from 1995 to 2008.

"Boothbay Country Club is steeped in history," said Jeff Harris of Harris Golf.

Francis Ouimet, winner of the 1913 U.S. Open, held the course record at Boothbay CC for years.

"I'll encourage youth programs for children of all ages in the Boothbay area and will provide qualified PGA pros to teach the game," Coulombe said.
