Robert Trent Jones built the Portsmouth Country Club in 1956, designing a coastal masterpiece that is regarded as one of New Hampshire’s most challenging, scenic experiences. Several holes play alongside Great Bay as the course snakes around the water. Measuring 7,153 yards, it features a number of demanding holes, not the least being the 226-yard par-3 eighth and the 472-yard par-4 12th.
When the golf is over, you’re just minutes from all that the idyllic town of Portsmouth has to offer, from wonderful dining, shopping and museums to beaches and breweries.
Designed by Brian Silva and opened in 2000, Breakfast Hill Golf Club in Greenland rests on 170 acres of family-owned land dating back 250 years. Once a working farm, the course flows beneath towering pines and has been ranked by national publications as one of America’s top public layouts.
The practice facility includes a sprawling 10,000-square-foot putting green, while the cedar-shingled clubhouse features a picturesque patio overlooking the finishing holes.
