By admin Jun9,2024

Golfweek released its annual best golf courses for each state in the U.S. for 2024 on Monday.

And if you want to play in New Hampshire, they recommend making your way to the White Mountain.

The pre-requisites for a course to be included on this list are as follows: the course must be publicly accessible in some fashion, whether through standard daily green fees or staying at a resort or a hotel.

The second pre-requisite is that there be no membership required to play on the course, with the exception being if the course also allows for hotel guests to play as well.

Let’s see which courses made it onto the list.

The golf course at the Omni Mount Washington Resort stands at the number-one spot of Golfweek’s best golf courses in the Granite State.

The resort has two golf courses: the 18-hole Mount Washington course and the 9-hole Mount Pleasant course.

The two courses are flanked by the Presidential Mountain Range and an overwhelmingly beautiful scenic view, according to the resort website.

But only the Mount Washington golf course was awarded Golfweek’s top spot for the best of New Hampshire’s courses.

It is a par 72, 7,004-yard-course that was designed by iconic Scottish architect Donald Ross in 1915 and restored by Brian Silva when the course reopened in 2008.

The course also has “bunkers crafted in a classic flair and provides infinite kinds of recovery shots” in the tightly cropped areas around the putting greens, according to the website.

You can play at this course by calling the resort’s clubhouse at 603-278-3322 and inquiring about tee times and their current rates.

Country Club of New Hampshire in Sutton

The Country Club of New Hampshire‘s golf course is ranked second among the five best golf courses in New Hampshire.

At this golf course, you will be playing at the base of Mount Kearsage. The course itself measures 6000 to 7000 yards and contains lush green fairways, according to the club’s webpage.

You can play by reserving a tee time on the bottom right of the website.

Owl’s Nest in Thornton

Nestled in the town of Thornton, the Owl’s Nest was ranked the third best golf course in New Hampshire by Golfweek.
