I grew up playing this course. I have hundreds of rounds here. Since the renovations, this course has been the best track for the money. The grounds crew have truly made it a gem in my backyard. Having said that, they're starting to slack a little bit. Cart paths are very beat up. It rained Saturday night and I teed off about 8 o'clock Sunday morning. Bunkers were not raked, thankfully I only found one of them. Some of the greens were not cut, still had the morning dew on them. Some of them weren't rolled so the first couple groups going through chewed up the turf around the hole with spike marks. There were some 5-somes out there but pace of play was still good, given the heat yesterday not many played. Rough is still luscious fairways still nice, still can't beat it for the price compared to others. But that doesn't mean you should slack on your upkeep. Still love my old home course!

Fantastic. Lush fairways, superb greens. Elevation changes and sloping fairways definitely add character to this course. Can't wait to play again and again.

Beautiful track. Each hole is unique. Elevation changes will absolutely test your game. Played the back tees and could get away with irons off a decent amount of tees. Greens fast and true. Lush fairways, but the walk is a beast. Did it in 3 hrs for a great twilight rate of 13 bucks- awesome value. I would absolutely play this place often because it can be super challenging but also rewarding if you're finding the right slopes in the fairways. Fairways decent width, but a handful of blind shots will back you off a second to think. Overall, one of the best in the NH area.

Can't beat 34 bucks for 18 and a cart during the week, but charging $49 on Columbus Day was ridiculous, it's FALL! Course was packed with old men who thought they were on the PGA Tour and some groups had 5 people in them slowing our play down tremendously. You need to have tee-times and update your website with the correct info,. Cart paths need alot of work in some spots. We play the course 10x a year and wills till go back but you guys need to announce when you have tournaments and shotgun starts. Went there one day and had to leave not knowing what was going on

After 12 noon its $37 for 18 and a cart. However it gets very slow pace after 8am and all the "all-stars" get out there. Course is in phenomenal shape, nkce layout and greens are very quick.
