It was another perfect New England summer day as we headed down Route 101 to Apple Hill Golf Club in East Kingston, NH. Built in 1981, Apple Hill has been owned and operated by Steve Lundquist for the past 19 years.
It was crazy busy on the day we filmed… they’d just finished a tournament, there was a party under the big tent, and their afternoon tee times were booked solid… Yet, with all this going on, Steve and his staff easily found the time to acquaint us with their facilities and make us feel right at home. From great service in the pro shop and snack bar to an impromptu poetry performance on the 7th hole, Apple Hill has all the charm and character you’d want from a New Hampshire golf course.
This gorgeous 18-hole course is lined with golden rod, queen anne’s lace, pine trees, and apple trees. The front nine has a lot of undulation while the back nine includes several water features and a challenging layout.
For newer and junior golfers, or experienced golfers who want to practice their short irons, there’s a 9-hole par 3 course adjacent to the original 18 hole golf club.
After our initial tour, Matt and I headed back to the clubhouse to meet up with Dave, Kenny, and Bunny. This week it was Matt’s turn to play as he challenged them to a game of match play. Bunny, Kenny, and Dave started out strong on the first hole, earning their par to take the early lead. Matt kept the score close as they battled it out around the course.
Everyone in our group enjoyed golfing Apple Hill. It was in fantastic condition, the pace of play was perfect, and the greens were superb. Bunny and I liked it so much we’re planning to come back for a girl’s day out!
If you love golf but haven’t checked out Apple Hill Golf Club – I highly recommend it. It has everything you need to enjoy a great day out on the course no matter your age or your skill level.
