Designed by The Father of American Golf Course Architecture, Donald Ross, in the late 1920's, Lake Sunapee is widely considered a Ross gem. The course routing reflects his design excellence: very little walking is required from one green to the next tee. And true to the Ross design philosophy, the "course can take care of every class of golfer". Fair but challenging, each golf hole presents a different problem. One is never bored when confronted by the subtleties of a master such as Ross.
In recent years, Lake Sunapee Country Club benefited from an extensive improvement plan that restored many of the original 1920's features. Significant tree removal returned sweeping fairway and mountain views. Greens regained their expansive character. Long buried bunkers were unearthed. And the course now boasts four sets of tees per hole. The improvements are a sublime testament to the marriage of classic golf with contemporary play. Outstanding easy to walk design, intriguing play and excellent maintenance are the hallmarks of golf at Lake Sunapee Country Club.
