Very different par 3
This a par 54 that's not easy. Its only a 9 hole course but there are blue T's that play a bit longer 3250 from the blues. We played the whites first then the blues. Greens are a bit slow for my liking but in good shape. Lots of elevated greens. And undulating greens.
I Didn't Want to Buy the Cart...
With 7 par three's and two very short par fours this 1,825 yard executive course in reasonably good shape shorts, fun to play.
What is more than amazing about Monadnock "Country Club" is that it also "sports" the most expensive motorized cart rentals in New Hampshire. Get this: They charge $27.00 for a couple of loops around this place.
What is it - you might ask - about these carts? Were they formerly driven by famous people; do they contain picnic baskets filled with goodies? Can they fly? Nope to all of these things. They simply cost $27 to lumber less than 4,000 yards. Have they rebuilt these golf carts into ROADSTERS?
A few miles down the road in nearby Keene, New Hampshire is an extraordinary golf course called Bretwood. Award-winning! Its two courses stretche 6,800 at the tips and are pure beauties. How much, you might ask, does Bretwood charge to rent a motorized cart for 18 long holes? Fourteen bucks. They charge about half of Monadnock's funny rate.
There's a great deal of talk these days about the dwindling interest in golf. One of the culprits is a certain group of courses and clubs that overprice fees and services. It's a darned shame.. We cannot grow this game by squeezing customers.
