Hey folks, just got back from vacation with the family in New Hampshire and I had a chance to sneak out and play the Mount Washington Course at the Omni Resort at Bretton Woods. The original design was by Donald Ross in 1915, with a restoration by Brian Silva in 2008.
This was the first time back in about 5 years, so I was really looking forward to it. And it certainly didn't disappoint! The layout is one of my favorites, very fun and strategic. Slightly challenging, not too hard, and the opportunities are out there to score if you are playing well. And of course, the views of the Presidential Mountain range and the fantastic old Grand Hotel are amazing. Thought I would share a few pictures...(although my phone pics don't do it justice!)
-The par 3 5th framed by the hotel -The bunkering on the short par 4 4th...these are taller than they look in the pic. I was standing by my ball and could only see the very tip of the flag. -The par 5 11th tee shot...one of my favorites anywhere, down the hill right at the Hotel. -And of course, the par 3 16th, or as I call it, "How to Frame a Golf Hole" by Donald Ross. That is Mount Washington directly behind the green. If you zoom in you can see the Observatory at the top!
