How to Choose the Right Golf Course

When choosing a golf course, there are a few key factors that make one a clear winner over others. Here’s what to look for:

Course Design

The design of the course should offer variety as well as a fun challenge for golfers of all skill levels.  That’s why as New Hampshire’s only Nicklaus Design Golf Course, we offer a unique experience combining elevation changes with New England charm.

Course Maintenance

It’s not just important to have a course that’s uniquely designed, but also one that’s properly maintained. Quality fairways, distinct rough and clearly displayed hazard markers, meticulously kept bunkers, and well-groomed pathways ensure you have a positive experience so you can focus on your golf game.  Put a check in all of the above boxes here at Owl’s Nest Resort

Scenic Views

Nestled in the White Mountains, Owl’s Nest offers some of the most spectacular views all season long. From spring to fall, you can enjoy spectacular mountain views at every hole.


Golf in 2019 is everchanging when it comes to layout and overall length. Some courses offer the traditional 18 hole course while others only offer 9 holes.  Some courses offer a championship design with varying pars of 3,4, and 5 while others are limited to par 3’s only. Check out our virtual map and description of all 18 holes, including some insider tips!


Be on the lookout for the best deal that still offers a challenging, well-maintained course. At Owl’s Nest, we offer special discounts throughout the season. Be sure to check out mid-week play for more flexible tee times at affordable rates. You don’t have to be a member to take advantage of our deals and enjoy all our great amenities!

“I’ve now played 75 golf courses in 9 states, and this is still my #1. The two guys I played with had never played there before, and the whole drive home they both just wanted to plan our next trip up there. I cannot recommend this course highly enough!” – Ben, Virginia
