New favorite course

I have been wanting to play this course for a while. Finally got there. I was warned to bring a lot of balls. Lost 6 or 7. Some tight fairways, lots of bends. Only used driver once.

New England’s Best Course

You knew you were in New Hampshire. Beautiful tee boxes, with breathtaking views. Fairways were well-kept and the greens were smooth and fast. Perfect conditions. There were no overlapping or side-by-side fairways. On some holes, you felt like your group was the only group on the course. Pace was very comfortable. Challenging for the good golfer, fun for the new golfer. Even though we had a golf cart, we still put 10,000 steps on the pedometers

Pocket your ego and you can score well here

Very tough when you first play it, but once you know it, you can score real good here. I hit the driver 225 and from the whites, i only hit driver on 5 holes. A challenging and very fun course.

Never Disappoints!

The Shattuck is one of the most unique, picturesque and challenging courses you will ever play and i try to play it 1-2 times a year (more if i lived closer). Carved out of the woods in one of the most incredible settings - it is a thinking man's course where you do not hit driver on every hole. Over all, the course is in good shape. The greens were in good condition, but because of the 95+ heat, they were allowed to grow (and were a little slow), but they should be in fantastic condition for the rest of the summer. One suggestion: bring a range finder or GPS watch. Highly recommended for the serious golfer!

Great staff

I work at a golf course in Mass. My job as a starter and player assistant on the course is to make players feel welcomed and happy to be there and hopefully return. The staff at Shattuck is a great example of what every course should be.

Challenging layout

What a challenging course. Target golf here. Get some crazy bounces. Greens in great shape. Great views. Keep driver in the bag. Shot an 89 for my first time ever playing here. Will be back and will know how to play the course better now.

put away your ego

This course has nice views. You just can't hit a way with your driver. It took me to the 5th hole before I took my driver out. Trust you're line and hit the ball. The staff was very friendly and helpful I would play again when I'm in the area

Bring Your "A" Game!!

You can score on this course if you have patience & a decent iron game. My 3 iron got a lot of use off the tee. Hit to the markers when you can and it will save you a few strokes. the greens were a touch slow, but in nice shape.

Unique course in the mountains

I always try to play here once per year. This is my third time and it is always a great experience. It is target golf folks and it is very challenging. There is a reason it was voted as one of the top 50 courses in the country. If you don't want that type of experience, don't play. It is unique with unbelievable views on most holes. If you don't hit the fairways or landing spots on your drives, your ball is most likely gone. Greens are challenging as well and there is plenty of water and marsh on most drives to navigate over. Pro shop attendants are always friendly. Others who complain about this course did not do their homework on what to expect and ended up losing a lot of balls. Enjoy it for what it is or don't go!

Perfect

The views cannot be beat. Truth be told this is a challenging course, but if you put your ego away and play smart it's a great course! Greens were quick for late season which made it that much more enjoyable. Staff is top notch and even gave me a deal on a Shattuck under armour golf shirt

Beauty and the Beast

After not playing for many years, it was in fine form. Holes 12-14 remind me of Myrtle Beach with the water. A must play for any golfer who is willing to test their game.

return visit

Have played course 3 times in last 4-5 weeks and enjoy it more every time. Continued course improvements make it more enjoyable every visit. Greens were quick and true and pace of play was enjoyable. Multiple tee options make it playable for my low handicap and wife's higher one. Hope to play again before seasobs end.

Bad design-Poor conditions-Nice Pro

First time playing The Shattuck. I had heard it was difficult but thought playing it late in the season would make it enjoyable and challenging. The Head Pro was very friendly and hooked me up with three other golfers who had played it before. I was told to aim at the pile markers on each hole. The problem was if you missed the pile marker by more than five yards either side your ball was gone. Lost ball! In addition you could not see from the tee where to "miss". Also, probably five or six holes you could not even see the pole marker from the tee. Blind shot after blind shot. It was hit and hope! In addition, the condition of the course was bad. For some reason I thought the course was a special resort type course. It was a mountain course at best with a lot of bad lies in fairways and rough. You couldn't see the fairway from the tee on many holes. Our golf cart had no governor on it so going downhill was dangerous. Cartpaths were a mess. Greens were okay. Sand traps were wet and grainy. Snack bar at turn had some specials which were pretty reasonable but slow. I am a five handicap and lost five golf balls. I can't imagine playing this course in the spring before your swing is in tact. I won't rush back to play here!

Friendly

This is the friendliest golf course I have ever been to. I work at a golf course and I wish we were this good. The course is very very difficult but not too long. Accuracy is the key. You basically have 2 choices. Fairway or lost ball. Not just kidding. Bring a lot of balls if you are an average golfer. 1 more thing,Dont even think about walking.

Always a challenge

Shattuck GC was in great condition when we played and the greens were a bit slow but in pristine shape. This course requires pin point accuracy on almost all your shots from tee to green but if you play to the course markers you will be okay. The views here of Mt. Monadnock are spectacular and there is an abundance of wildlife around to keep things interesting between holes.

great condition friendly staff

Hadn't played Shattuck for years due to unhappiness with conditions and staff. Played again was pleasantly surprised by course conditions and Tom's friendly staff. Felt like a member more than a guest. Greens and fairways were pristine and maintenance staff was hard at work making improvements. Won't be years before next visit.

Challenging Scenic Adventure

Wow! This course is the most beautiful nature walk I've ever taken while swinging a stick at little white balls. You need to focus on the beauty of your surroundings ... do not look at your score!. So much fun, but bring lots of extra balls. The brush is dense. the abundant swamps, ponds, and streams are not forgiving. The mountain views had me snapping pictures more than usual. I got a great deal on GolfNow -- $25 including cart. Can't wait to get to check out the fall leaves in a few weeks. A real New England gem.
