First Time at Eastman

It was great to see Mark. I knew him from 25 years ago.
Very friendly and helpful staff. The ranger/starter, Skip, was awesome too. Beautiful clubhouse. Good practice facilities. Every hole was a good challenge. Excellent layout/design. very good conditions. Whoever wrote that the greens were bad was way off. The greens were in great condition, except for one hole, - #14 - had a couple a couple of rough spots. Bunkers are very good. No complaints!. Great day.

Potential unrealized

I dunno. I play a lot of golf. The greens are all messed up. We played behind a 4 some that didn't let us through. No big deal...but you can't get a beer here before 1130...no bev cart either...so if I'm going to play a 4 hour round, I'd like a beer or two. Hope the greens come back soon. I'd pay $30 max to play before 11 AM here. Really cool track though, especially if you're a strong golfer!

Hidden gem in the Dartmouth/Sunapee area

This course in Eastman (Grantham) is suited to golfers of all ages and abilities with a wide choice of mens tees (5600 to 6700). Conditions are excellent and the layout is picturesque and challenging, but fair. You'll have trouble finding a better course or a better value in New England. I'm a senior and I played from the Gold Tees at just over 5600 yards. The fairways are all reachable and there's still plenty of challenge to keep things interesting. Two golfers in our foursome (lower handicappers) played from the white tees at just over 6300 yards and loved it. The greens can be hard to read, but they roll true. This is a course to played again and again.

Head North to Eastman for a Great Golf Course

Eastman is a hidden gem way up north in the middle of nowhere right off Rt. 89. I cannot imagine what this remote area looked like 40+ years ago when this project was conceived. It is a spectacular layout, that uses all of the natural wooded, hillside and waterways on the property. It is always in great condition and has spectacular views in all directions. I am guessing the economy has slowed the flow of members and residents into this quaint secluded community, but that has made it more accessible to the public. I generally play it in the fall, after the summer season is over, and the conditions are still great. It is a short season at Eastman, usually ending by early November. The 9th is a great uphill par 4 that bends to the right and is hard to hit in 2 shots. The 12th is an amazing downhill, over a 100 foot drop, par 4 that you can soar a drive off of. You may have a downhill lie on your second shot if your drive does not roll out on the fairway. There are several holes at Eastman that will give you a wow factor. It is quite a hike up to this great course in the sticks. The 2 hour drive from Boston and 1 hour from Manchester will be worth it. If you can find good lodging, it can be part of a great "two for" with Owl's Nest. I certainly believe you will not be disappointed with Eastman.
