New Hampshire’s oldest 9 hole course built in 1897. This conservation-protected landmark, approved for the historic register, has stunning views of 5 mountain ranges and is designed as a fun and breathtaking place to enjoy your game. It is very hard, indeed, to have a bad day here!

Play is fairly straightforward and somewhat shorter than the average (2000 yards for 9 holes–in 1897, with hickory clubs and leather balls, it was a lot further!) Many of the original hazards from that era remain and despite modern equipment they often make play much more strategic than the yardage suggests.

Six of the nine holes are par 4s, the rest par 3s with only the first hole having a water hazard. It’s an excellent course to play if you looking to introduce someone else to golf, you want to play a quick round on a “real” course in an exotic location, you want to practice your own game in a non-threatening environment, or you just want to have fun (our director of golf added the phrase “and fun” to his title for a reason!)
