Located alongside the Interstate 93 highway in the beautiful White Mountain National Forest, the 18-hole layout at the Owl’s Nest Resort was designed by Mark Mungeam of Mungeam Cornish Golf Design and it first opened for play in 1998.
Highlight holes on the front nine include the downhill 433-yard 2nd and the water-protected par five 4th. The shorter inward half occupies more undulating terrain and feature holes here include the uphill par five 13th and bunkerless par four 16th.
Mungeam Cornish Golf Design comment as follows:"Set high in the Mountains and along the Pemigewasset River, Owl's Nest can be divided into three 6-hole sections. The six holes surrounding the clubhouse feature links-style golf. Perimeter mounding on the sides of the fairways bring stray drives back to the short grass. Six holes meander "through the fields" and around our man made four-acre spring-fed pond. Accuracy is important through this section. If your shots are not on line, they will find a watery resting place! The final six holes, set atop "Sunset Hill," and are among the best you will experience anywhere with dramatic elevation changes and views across the White Mountains."
