2) Stay for a drink!
You’ll find a clubhouse at many of Mt. Washington Valley’s golf courses, where staying for a drink is all part of the experience.
Culminate your round of golf with a beverage at the veranda of the Eagle Mountain House, overlooking the mountain ranges in Jackson, as well as its 9-hole par 32 course.
The White Mountain Hotel not only overlooks scenic views of Cathedral and White Horse Ledges, but a 9-hole golf course as well! Take in a 9-hole round at Hale’s Location Golf Course, and then make your way to the Tullamore Tavern back at the hotel for a beverage to bask in the views of the ledges from your chair!
Indian Mound Golf Club is an accessible par 70 golf course that features 9-holes on a relatively level first half of the course, followed by gentle rolling terrain on the second half. Its clubhouse, River’s Edge Grille and Tavern, hosts live music every Friday and Saturday night.
3) Play During the Twilight Hours!
Many golf courses offer special rates to play their courses after a certain time in the afternoon. This gives you plenty of time to spend your morning enjoying other aspects of vacationing in Mt. Washington Valley, such as hiking, biking, shopping, or eating, before ending your day on the course.
4) Take in a Little Bit of History
The Wentworth Golf Club is an 18-hole course that will have you weaving through Jackson Village. As you make your way through the course you’ll take in views of the Presidential Range and follow the Wildcat and Ellis Rivers. To cross them, you’ll drive your cart over a red covered bridge, which is a homage to the life-size one found right in Jackson Village that has been written about and photographed for decades! Some even call it the honeymoon bridge, and is a starting point for many happy couples who get married in the area!
5) Play Among Mountains…and Lakes!
Yes, Mt. Washington Valley’s golf courses are surrounded by mountain ranges so beautiful they might throw off your game. BUT! Some are also surrounded by lakes as well!
The Bridgton Highlands Country Club is located in Bridgton, ME and is surrounded by Highland Lake. As you make your way through the 18-hole course, you’ll take in views of Pleasant Mountain, New Hampshire’s White Mountains and Mount Washington.
Province Lake Golf Club is a beautiful blend of the best of classic golf with outstanding modern design. Throughout the course's 18-holes you'll be treated to spectacular views of the lake, and occasionally you'll spot the wildlife that make their home in the area.
Engulfed by the Great North Woods on Route 2 in Gorham, New Hampshire, Androscoggin Valley Country Club is an 18-hole course. It offers a fully stocked pro shop, lessons, tournaments and its clubhouse, “The 19th Hole.”
