A golf course that straddles the New Brunswick and Maine borders is currently off limits to golfers in Canada, even though most of the course lies on Canadian soil. Golfers from New Brunswick can only access the Aroostook Valley Golf Course from the United States, but, with the border currently closed, they are being denied entry. Almost half of the club’s members are Canadian.
