Crotched Mountain Golf Club is a classic Donald Ross design set against a beautiful New England backdrop in the rolling hills of New Hampshire. The course is situated at the base of a mountain, offering beautiful views of the surrounding Monadnock region. This peacefully secluded spot is breathtaking in the fall when the leaves are changing. The golf course has many unique holes that will test your skill with a variety of different shots. Mature trees line the narrow fairways and there are strategically placed bunkers flanking the greens. You will also come across the occasional water hazard. There are some challenging holes but Crotched Mountain Golf Club is a fair and playable round that will appeal to a wide range of skill levels. The practice facility at Crotched Mountain includes a driving range and two different putting greens, including one with a sand bunker for chipping practice.

Still a Fun Course Despite Disappointing Conditions

Crotched Mtn GC offers a gem of a design at a very friendly rate that's a good value if you don't mind the shabby conditions.

I just moved back to New Hampshire so I'm not sure how the conditions here compare to others in the area but there were several areas of either burnt out or diseased grass on fairways and greens that somewhat hindered the playability of this fantastic Donald Ross layout.

Players will be challenged with the old-school design with severally sloped fairways and greens in this mountain golf setting.

The staff was friendly and the $22 walking afternoon rate is hard to beat. I look forward to coming back, hopefully with some improved conditions.

Too much cross slope to be fun

On most holes if you don't hit the fairway in just the right spot you are facing a lost ball. Even if you hit the center of the fairway your ball will roll off into the woods. Not a lot of fun, especially for a first round on the course. The greens are very contoured and fast; I did like that! But getting to the green can be very frustrating. It has been a very dry year, and the course shows it and the dry conditions make the ball run-often into trouble. Come for the scenery though!

Great Val

I’ve played Crotched at least a dozen times this year. The course is in the best shape it’s ever been in. The staff his very friendly and courteous. I highly recommend anyone giving it a try. I live in Manchester and it’s less than a 40 minute drive and well worth it

Gut the grass while you are playing. Turn the sprinklers on in the fairway while you are playing .
Some of the greens are bad. Some tees have not much grass.Probably because of the weather.

Decent experience

Course was fun, very up and down, but a lot of fun.

Wasn’t happy when the owner charged me an extra 10$ for a cart because I didn’t want to ride with some rando without a mask. Up charged me for the cart so I could ride solo, even when there were plenty of carts ...

Recent Round at Crotched

overall, the course is fair but extremely hilly. You're drives must be spot on in the center or, on many holes, they roll off into the rough or the woods. The real bummer for us is we got there early to drive some ball and there were none available. We also needed to buy some balls and the pro shop was out. Tee boxes were fine once you navigated all of the goose droppings. Greens were fair but they could/should move the cups now and then. Almost all had burnt edges and dips and bumps. Most likely from too much play into the same cup. I don't think we will be back.
