Membership at golf course on the Maine-Canada border arises to near pre-pandemic levels

When the Aroostook Valley Country Club in Fort Fairfield and Four Falls, New Brunswick, opened for the season in May, it was the first time in nearly two years that Americans could golf the 18-hole, 6,305-yard course.

And while they have to go through a complicated process to do so, that isn’t keeping all of them away.

After having to close its doors to Americans in July 2020 due to its unique location that straddles the border of both the US and Canada, the 92-year-old highly regarded course feared its business was in jeopardy. Now the course is experiencing a minor resurgence as travel requirements between the two countries become more lenient.

The Aroostook Valley Country Club has 141 current members, just 48 fewer than before the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Of those members, 28 are Americans and 113 are Canadians. Normally, at least 50 percent of the members are American.
