Crotched Mountain Golf Club is a classic Donald Ross design set against a beautiful New England backdrop in the rolling hills of New Hampshire. The course is situated at the base of a mountain, offering beautiful views of the surrounding Monadnock region. This peacefully secluded spot is breathtaking in the fall when the leaves are changing. The golf course has many unique holes that will test your skill with a variety of different shots. Mature trees line the narrow fairways and there are strategically placed bunkers flanking the greens. You will also come across the occasional water hazard. There are some challenging holes but Crotched Mountain Golf Club is a fair and playable round that will appeal to a wide range of skill levels. The practice facility at Crotched Mountain includes a driving range and two different putting greens, including one with a sand bunker for chipping practice.

The course is in great condition. Grass thick and lush. Greens are in excellent shape. Careful along edge of woods, lots of poison ivy. Keep ball in fairway.

Course combines targtet golf with tricky greens. You should think about where you want to land the ball and why you want to land it there. Then you have to do it. Greens can be deceiving. This course rewards good play and punishes mistakes. The fairways could you use a little better drainage in some areas; it rained hard the previous day so there were 2 fairways where balls got plugged. Pace of play was slow; it was a Sunday on a holiday weekend so not unexpected. Views of mountain are amazing. Friendly staff. Good food at the restaurant. This place is definitely worth the trip.

Golf in New England in late October is typically chilly and/or rain. This round the temps hit 71 degrees and it was a perfect day to play.

This course continues to grow on me. Not overly long, it presents a nice assortment of holes that rewards good shots. Keep the ball in play and have some fun.

My buddy and I booked a tee time at Crotched Mountain pretty much on a whim and didn't have very high expectations...but a short ride in the country during foliage season seemed like a fun idea. The drive turned out to be a lot longer than expected (1 hour 20 minutes) but, as it turns out, I'll surely be making it again.

We totally enjoy playing The Shattuck in Jaffrey and found that Crotched Mountain was somewhat similar but it was a lot better manicured. The fairways, bunkers and greens were surprisingly well maintained. If you like Donald Ross courses, you'll love this one. The views were great (check some of the pictures I took - assuming they upload) and the golf was outstanding. Most holes didn't require a driver but they all seemed to require landing the ball in the right place with a 3-wood off the blue tees. Target golf at its best! Undulating, slanted greens make it a challenge but they roll true and make it fun. I think a good sense humor and an appreciation for beautiful scenery would really help those of us who aren't scratch golfers.

We sat on the deck overlooking the 18th green and enjoyed a quick but delicious lunch after our round, The bartender poured my Guinness properly (fill 3/4, rest, finish pouring) so it was a fitting end to a most enjoyable day.

Hopefully we can get back yo Crotched Mountain several times before the snow falls!

This course is very difficult and a reality check for anyone who plays well on the more flat tracks around New England. The rough is almost unfair at times but if you keep it in the fairway like you’re supposed to with a wood or long iron there is an opportunity to go low or at least shoot par on every hole. My locals tip is after the 13th hole keep your driver in the bag for the rest of the round! With that being said it’s always in great condition (wet but you can’t control Mother Nature) and the owner is very friendly and always around getting his hands dirty trying to make improvements very which to me is commendable!

I’m partial to Donald Ross layouts and this one was designed (front 9 only) during his heyday of great courses.

Not overwhelming long but a nice test of golf inviting you to use your irons but also the occasional risk/reward use of the driver.

Greens can be tricky and a lot of uneven lies on the back nine.

Beautiful views worth the trip!

Labor Day 4 hour round, greens recently aerated. Course requires above average skill, nothing is level, unforgiving tree-lined fairways, groomed sand traps. Late for tee time due to local parades, no problem. Will be back again soon.

I've been golfing here for the last three years. Conditions have improved every year. Greens are excellent though they had just punched them. Fairways are nice, some tough spots, but overall very nice. Good layout though you'll find a couple very difficult holes because of "crowned" fairways that make hitting the fairway very difficult. You'll love the views. Good pub/grille/restaurant when you're done. Nice deck overlooking the 18th green
