Membership Opportunities

Long respected as New Hampshire's premier Donald Ross course, Lake Sunapee Country Club offers Members an outstanding opportunity for championship golf.

An honest test, challenging but fair, the course presents subtleties for the unwary in the sweep of its fairways, bunker placements and green contours. The marvelous, uncongested golf environment, with Mt. Kearsarge as its magnificent backdrop, is easy to walk and a delightful experience for expert and beginner alike.

Golf is just one of the advantages enjoyed by Members. Pool, tennis, lively Members' events and our excellent restaurant provide year round fun and camaraderie. Golf, Off Season, Recreational and Social Memberships are offered at a variety of levels for singles, couples and families.
