Please note: the greens have been aerated (large hole), top dressed and not cut. I would not play on these for 10 days. after 9/11, I was not told the other day, paid full price and received no value. Usually the greens are great, but I guess they do what they have to.

Great course- former turf farm and a links style course with no ocean in sight! Long but flat and very walkable- if the wind blows this course has teeth. The back 9 has a serious set of holes that will keep your driver in hand. I've played this course from both blues and whites and if you're a not a single digit cap stay on the whites. The course can also be set up very difficult with pin positions in tough to get to spots due to the wavy link style greens. Score on the front but save your best drives for the back!

Yes it is flat but play it from the back tees and you will find that there are a lot of decisions to make on laying up or going for it with all the carry areas on many holes that are not necessarily near the Greens. Several bunkers will give you trouble on slightly elevated Greens depending on pin placement. Overall, we like this course because even when you hit a wayward shot you can scramble to save Par.

There are not many public courses built on flat farmland that can grow up to be fun, challenging tracks. Passaconaway has done all of that with plenty of yardage from the back two sets of tees. It is always in excellent condition due to a hard working crew and plenty of water for the sprinklers from the adjacent Merrimack River. The 3rd hole is a great par 4 that requires a precise, long drive to avoid the marsh straight ahead and on the right and the overhanging trees on the left. The second shot is to a raised green where errant shots to the right will kick into the marsh. The 3 parallel par 4's on the back, numbers 12, 15 and 16 are all well over 400 yards and demand 2 perfect shots to hit repelling greens. There are very few mature trees on this layout, which makes it tough on a hot summer day when shade is your friend, but it is a great course for the late fall because there are virtually no leaves to disrupt play! There are only 1 or 2 holes where you may want to hit less than driver off the tee. Passaconaway lets you swing for the fences with confidence. There were only 2 greens that I saw that still had remnants of winter damage on them. This course will never disappoint you in the conditioning department. Now it is a bit out of the way for most people, but with GPS it is easy to find from anywhere, just minutes from both Manchester and Nashua. I hope you enjoy playing Passaconaway as much as I have for the past 20 some years.
