I’ve played them all & LOCHMERE CG is the best public course in NH for my money.
Always in great shape , scenic , easy to get to off exit 20 and a challenging layout...
Also the pro , Vic Stanfield, is a class act .....
Make a tee time & Enjoy your round. 👍👍👍👍👍🏌🏼‍♂️ 5 thumbs up for sure....⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The following comments are from one who about a12 handicap and not a big hitter:

N. Conway: Beautiful scenery with some great holes like 9 and 18. Biggest negative - doesn't drain well after a rain.

Lochmere: two different course front and back, the latter more challenging due mainly to varying elevations and fornt to back as wellas side to side.on many holes. Beautiful course with superbly maintained bunkers (no putting out of their greenside bunkers) and fairly high rough.

Louden: short but narrow narrow and hilly

Ridgewood: Don't remember mmuch about it except that it was challenging and that I enjoyed it.

Breakfast Hill: Keepit in the fairways because the rough is turns into unplayable quickly. erg, very challenging

I'm about a 12 handicap so these comments Canterbury Woods. Beautiful hilly holes with interesting and varied greens. Challenging course.

Wentworth:: Can score on this short course, Average conditions of greens and fairways.
conditions the few times I played it.

The Oaks: Fastes greens on any public course I have played. Big hitters complain that too many holes do not require a driver, in fact, using one is a measure of poor course management.
