It’s a little known fact that less than a third of over 400 Donald Ross layouts were actually visited by the architect before they opened for play. The course at Manchester Country Club is one that he did see, opening in 1923, and its tree-lined holes are routed across 116 acres of a rather flat landscape where water impacts at eight of the holes on the scorecard.

The club has hosted the New Hampshire Open nine times since its inauguration in 1930 and one of the more distinguished golfers to win this competition was South African Bobby Locke, who claimed the 26th edition of the event at Manchester in 1959.

The short par four 6th is a favourite hole for many golfers on this understated layout but the stronger back nine throws up a number of testing holes, including the 530-yard 11th (played as stroke index 1) and the 447-yard 17th, where a creek crosses the fairway as it heads toward the green.
