Golf Course Located in the heart of North Conway Village
A scenic and challenging golf course while remaining “golfer friendly” is located in the center of North Conway Village. This par 71 championship course is rated as one of the top ten golf courses in New Hampshire and the course is always one of the best conditioned and an excellent test of golf. First established in 1895 in the Saco River-lined farmlands below North Conway Village, the North Conway Country Club provides the premier golf experience in Mt. Washington Valley. This spectacularly scenic 18-hole championship course has water hazards coming into play on five holes and numerous sand bunkers spread throughout its design. The course is consistently and impeccably maintained and is a good test of golf at all levels. The natural turf range includes separate practice areas for chipping, putting and bunkers. The North Conway Country Club has been the host many State Association events:
- The annual NH Pro Championship
- 2003 Women’s Tri-State Championship (NH-ME-VT)
- 2003, 2005 & 2007 NH Open
- 2001 NH Men’s Amateur Championship
- 1998 NH Women’s Amateur Championship

The North Conway Country Club is an 18 hole PGA Championship course located in the village of North Conway adjacent to Schouler Park and the North Conway Scenic Railroad Station.

Alex H. Findlay — 9 holes, 2,743 yard par 40.Course then known as Kearsage Golf Links.
Ralph M. Barton — Remodeled 9 holes, added 2nd set of tees. Course played 18 holes as a par 70.

The original holes were laid out and ready for play in 1895 and the course has undergone many changes since that era.
The “Back” nine was added in 1975 and was designed by local Architect, William Levy, former owner of The Yield House.
Because the course lies in the valley of the Saco River and is bordered on both sides by the Saco, you might think that the course is just “ho-hum” back and forth.
The first hole is a 395 yard par four with a highly elevated tee.
The dreaded corn field lies on the left and numerous trees run all the way down the right side. Accuracy is a must here if you want to get a good second shot at the dual-bunkered 1st green.
The 5th hole, bordered like a banana on the left by the Saco River is the Club’s signature hole. An accurate tee shot on this 318 yard par four to a small and plateau landing area will help with your approach shot to the large but narrow green.
Miss your shot left and you will be either in a cavernous bunker or attempting a chip shot up a steep bank to the fastest green on the course.
Don’t let the par 3’s fool you, they vary from a 126 yard hole with a clear and open shot to a small green to a 147 yard par 3 where the wind can really come into play.
A couple of testy par 5’s, both involving water, will challenge those long hitters wanting to “get home” in 2 and the 14th hole, a par 4, features an elevated and double-tiered green, which for many good golfers is the toughest hole on the course.
In 1985 one era ended and a new one began with the construction of a new clubhouse. The clubhouse, with its gorgeous views to Cathedral and White Horse Ledges is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail, lunch or sunset gathering.
The Club has been proud host to many professional events among them the New Hampshire Women’s Amateur Championship in 1998. Dana Harrity, the winner of this event for the 10th time, raved about the course and its overall playability.
The Pro Shop staff, guided by PGA Professional, Kevin Walker and the Greens Crew, working under the very capable direction of course Superintendent, Greg George, all work hard to provide you with a superb product. We look forward to hosting you and your group and wish you a great round of golf and fun on what we believe will be a most enjoyable day.
