- 370 yards - par 4 - "Dare"
- 612 yards - par 5 - "The Gauntlet"
Beauty: You won't see a green like this anywhere else;
it's carved into a 30' high rock ledge and tucked in behind a natural
...and the Beast: A long, narrow fairway with trouble
along both sides of its entire length - and we mean length; 612 yards
from the Great Blues.
- 564 yards - par 5 -
Beauty: The entire hole as viewed from the green; a stone
wall runs the length of the winding fairway with Mt. Monadnock rising
...and the beast: Play it as it was designed; two
distinct landing areas and a tight green (bunkers right, hazard left)
- unless you feel reeeaaally lucky!
- 200 yards - par 3 - "Carry"
Multi-level elevated tee pads overlook 140 yards of natural brush and
wetlands leading to a lush green with thick woods behind.
...and the Beast: Unless you're playing the Forward tees,
you must carry 140 - 175 yards across the hazard to a wide, shallow
green with a small bail-out fairway right.
yards - par 4 - "Squeeze Play"
Beauty: Towering white pines stand guard over the landing
area; a grand mountain vista greets you when you look back from the
...and the Beast: Your drive must carry a wide hazard,
but not be so big that you overrun the approach to the green, pinning
yourself behind pines and ledge.
yards - par 4 - "Shattuck Inn"
Beauty: A gently rising fairway with a mountain stream
cascading along the left side; the clubhouse sits high in the
...and the Beast: A longer-than-it-looks second shot
going uphill to a narrow but deep green with grassy mounds left and
two deep bunkers right.
- 432 yards - par 4 -
Beauty: As you round the corner of this big dogleg,
your first look at the green across the wide, lush fairway and winding
stream is impressive.
... and the Beast: The longest par 4; you need a big
drive to have a clear shot at the sloping green with a wide stream in
front and wetlands right.
- 315 yards - par 4 - "Temptation"
- 160 yards - par
Beauty: A rock-walled island green surrounded by
water and marsh grass on three sides, with giant hemlocks rising up
...and the Beast: A rock-walled island green surrounded
by water and marsh grass on three sides, with giant hemlocks rising up
- 544 yards - par 5 -
Beauty: This undulating green is one of the most
striking on the course, situated on a peninsula rising out of a
Y-shaped reflecting pond.
...and the beast: The landing area for your drive is
narrow, while hidden water all along the left side of the second shot
says, "Don't aim at the flag."
- 391 yards - par 4 - "Driver's Delight"
Beauty: Over the reflecting pond in front of the tee; a wide
rolling fairway and bunkered green with the colonial Gage farmhouse
...and the Beast: Just keep it straight; there's deep
rough left and right. The big green is slightly elevated, so
your second shot may require one more club.
yards - par 4 - "Lay Up"
Beauty: From the elevated tee you look down on a
deep valley of a fairway below and across to a plateau green carved
out of granite ledge.
...and the Beast: There's no advantage in going for the
green - the lie if you miss is impossible; hit to the 100 yard markers
and get your second shot close.
- 405 yards - par
4 - "Home"
Beauty: Graceful leaning beeches accent the
elevated tee; the lush rolling fairway beyond is framed by a stand of
white birches left.
...and the Beast: The fairway slopes hard to the left
into the woods. Aim your drive down the right for a clear shot
to the biggest green on the course.
