There is still time to play golf and vacation in the Mt. Washington Valley region of New Hampshire! The scenery is magnificent, the food is fresh and delicious and, if you have never seen a moose in its natural habitat nor driven on the Auto Road to the top of Mt. Washington, you still have a chance before the first snowfall...then, it's ski season!
The region’s eight golf courses should stay open until November 1st or the first snow. Here’s a look at the most scenic holes for leaf peeping and putting in Mt Washington Valley, New Hampshire.
MT WASHINGTON VALLEY, NEW HAMPSHIRE
MOST SCENIC GOLF COURSE HOLES:
Androscoggin Valley Country Club: Number Eighteen. During foliage, the color and the mountains contrasted with the blue sky make the scenery here breathtaking.
Mountain View Grand Hotel, Spa & Golf: First Hole. From the tee box, there are mountain views on three sides with the hotel behind the golfer.
Hales Location Golf Course: Number Five. This hole has a par 5 with a backdrop of Cranmore Ski Area aflame in color in the fall and a well bunkered, rolling fairway.
Indian Mound Country Club: All of them. Look for a fall slide show gallery with scenic photos from throughout the course here: http://www.indianmoundgc.com/press/slideshows/fall2009.php
North Conway Country Club: Number 14. This is the longest par four on the course, with all four teeing areas surrounded by towering maple and oak trees. The long second shot (third for most ladies) is to an elevated, tiered green framed by giant bunkers right and left. The panoramic views of Mt. Washington and the Moat Range from the green are spectacular.
Province Lake Golf Club: Number Eleven. Medium length par 3 overlooking the scenic Province Lake with the mountains in harvest hues as its backdrop.
Waumbek Country Club: First Hole. Magnificent view of the Presidential range as a backdrop. The same view is available for #18 too.
Wentworth Country Club: Fifteenth Hole. 460 yards, par 5, downhill tee shot, second shot over water to green on highest spot of the course overlooking all of Jackson Village.
