Springbrook farm was developed and opened as a golf course in 1966. The course, a former site of the Maine Open, features 18 championship holes. Golf Professional Al Biondi, who designed and built the course, purposely left the natural terrain, feeling that it would be a challenging test of golf. This is a trend in many of the new courses being built in the country today.

The beauty of the course is enhanced by a brook which meanders through the middle of the course. The course has gained a reputation for its wildflowers which grow in abundance on most of the holes. Small gardens of annuals adorn many teeing areas and surround the main house, barn, and golf shop. Bird houses serve as 150 yard markers and are occupied during the breeding season. In addition, 150 and 100 yard disks in the fairways help in club selection, although golfers must add or subtract a club on some holes due to changes in elevation. To identify pin placements, red (front), white (middle), and yellow (back) flags have been added this season.

The original barn was remodeled to house the clubhouse, restaurant/snack bar. The rustic building, with original barn boards and beams, wagon-wheel chandeliers and tables, has been preserved to offer a relaxing atmosphere. Many first-time visitors stop dead in their tracks when entering the building and just look around with open-mouthed wonder at the structure that can seat up to 250.

Springbrook is a public course and offers tee times one week in advance seven days a week. The course is a popular site for various outings and tournaments. In support of junior golf, Springbrook hosts the golf team from Winthrop High School. Springbrook also offers a practice area and range with 2 practice greens and a practice bunker.
