Stonebridge Country Club | Goffstown, NH
Now Better than Ever.
Stonebridge Country Club, an award-winning course 10 minutes from Manchester
and one of the most picturesque courses in New Hampshire, was acquired
in 2008 by local owners who have invested $1M in upgrades to the facility. Newly
paved paths, electric carts, new bridges, and extensive drainage allow the course
to be playable all season, and the clubhouse has been completely renovated.
Opened in 1997 on a scenic hilltop with commanding views of the countryside,
Stonebridge is home to the #1 golf hole in New Hampshire according to WMUR
television — the breathtaking par 3 sixth, visible from the driveway. Stonebridge
was rated "8th Best New Hampshire Golf Course" by Golf Digest, which gives it a
Don't let the beautiful surroundings fool you — this enjoyable course is also
challenging. Th e Wogan design measures 6,808 yards, rated 73.3 with a slope of
138. Many holes are tight and hilly, the greens fast and undulating, with water
and bunkers awaiting errant shots. Four diff erent tees ensure the course is enjoyable
for the beginner to the low handicapper.
The fi rst 5 holes are open and forgiving. Six is the signature hole that reminds
many of Augusta's twelfth. It's all carry over a stone-lined pond, near the namesake
stone bridge. Th e front concludes with 3 picturesque dogleg par 4's that
meander back and forth across a creek.
The challenges continue at the tenth — a risk/reward par 5. Eleven and twelve
are hilly par 4's with tricky greens. Th irteen is a treacherous par 3 through deep
woods, and fourteen is the #1 handicap hole. It's an intimidating 560 yards from
the back, with a tight downhill drive and no place to miss. Put your ego and your
driver away to escape with a respectable score. Precise tee shots are required to
successfully navigate fi fteen and sixteen, and seventeen is a narrow par 5 which
feels even longer due to its uphill slope across all 551 yards. Eighteen is a great
fi nishing hole, with a precision second that must navigate two ponds, a bunker
and the hill behind its undulating green.
After your round, Stonebridge off ers a full-service restaurant and bar, featuring
fi reside or outdoor dining. Linger long enough to enjoy the spectacular views
and sunsets from the spacious clubhouse deck.
