Highland Links Golf Club


The Highland Links Golf course in Holderness, New Hampshire, is a short (1,485 yards) but challenging course for even the greatest golfers. Because the fairways are small, you'll need your best shorts for every hole. Highland Links, on the other hand, is a family-friendly course. Relaxed and enjoyable. Highland Links is the ideal golf course for individuals who visit for the lakes and boating but still want to play a game of golf.


For those seeking to learn the basics of golf or looking to improve their short game we offer both group and individual lessons.

The idea for a golf course in Holderness, NH's idyllic Mount Prospect Road location began in 1948, when the L. J. Carlton family built the first 9 holes on their farm. It was a desire that had been put on hold for 26 years due to the demands of farming this land. The land was sold to a development company in 1974, and work on the course began in 1975.


Organic landscaping has been around for a few years and is becoming increasingly popular for private home grounds and some corporate campuses, but it has yet to gain traction in the golf business. Highland Links Golf Club is excited to be at the forefront of this movement.


“Our foursome couldn’t get a tee time on short notice at White Mountain Country Club so we headed out Highland links, just a few miles north off the 175. Not too challenging, but great scenery and well maintained.”

“Great 9 hole just West of Squam Lake. Family friendly.”

“Some buddy’s from Plymouth State took me golfing for the first time last June. Had a fun afternoon, played the 9 hole twice. I expected everyone to be “stuffy”, but everyone was super patient with us….”
