Golfing with Donald Ross in Mt. Washington Valley, New Hampshire

By Kathy Bennett

One of golf’s most renowned course architects was Donald Ross. Players seek out his courses around the country. But lucky golfers coming to the Mt. Washington Valley don’t have to go far – our region boasts 3 courses designed by the legendary Scotsman. Whether you’re traveling here for a weekend or a week (or a lifetime!) you’ll be able to play a piece of golf history right here in the New Hampshire!

What makes a Donald Ross Course special? According to Andy Ross, it’s the course’s playability. “Donald Ross, one of the giants of the golden age architecture era, became the most prolific architect of all time with over 400 golf course designs to his name. Ross was the first “professional” golf course architect in America as he was able to build a successful and efficient business during the golden age era. He has more top 100 courses than any other architect and has had over 100 major championships and USGA events hosted at his courses, far and away the most of any architect. Ross’ transcendent skill was his ability to create playability at his courses for the beginner while still challenging the best players ability to score.”
With credentials like that, golfers of all abilities should make the trip to Mt. Washington Valley and plan a fall golf trip today!
The 18-hole Mount Washington Course was designed by legendary Scottish Architect Donald Ross and was completed in 1915. Its backdrop features New Hampshire’s spectacular Presidential Mountain Range. This Par 72, 7,004-yard-course has hosted four New Hampshire Opens and the prestigious New England Open Championship in September 2010.

Reopened on August 1, 2008, the Mount Washington Course has been restored to Donald Ross’ original plans by noted golf course architect Brian Silva, including bunkers crafted in a classic flair and infinite varieties of recovery shots in the closely cropped areas around the putting greens. The par 5 eleventh hole and the par 3 fifth hole feature stunning views of Omni Mount Washington Hotel and surrounding mountains.
