The weather in New England’s been phenomenal for golf this year, so it was no surprise to be under beautiful, sunny skies as we played The Oaks Golf Links in Somersworth, NH.
Matt and I were both pleasantly surprised by this golf course. The facility is much bigger than we expected – with a modern clubhouse and ballroom, and excellent dining. There’s also a full driving range, a sand bunker and chipping area, and one of the largest practice greens I’ve seen so far.
Before we headed out to the course, Matt and I spoke with Shaun Bishop, Head Golf Professional at The Oaks.
“We have one of the most unique membership programs out there.” Said Shaun. “All our member benefits are good at both The Oaks, and our sister course, Candia Woods.” As he showed us around the facility, Shaun also told us about their junior golf program – which supports youth golf participation through lessons, fundraising, and junior golf scholarships. For such a large facility, this course felt comfortable and welcoming from the moment we arrived – and I was looking forward to starting our round.
This week Matt and I were both behind the camera as Ross and Eric took on Rick and Rick Jr. As we filmed, I was impressed by both the landscaping and the ambiance of this golf course. Many of the fairways were framed with trees – allowing for players to concentrate on their game in a private, quiet setting.
The pace of play was fantastic and the greens were among the fastest and best kept I’ve seen on any course we’ve filmed this year. It was a tough match between our players with Ross and Eric taking an early lead. Rick and Rick Jr. came back in the middle of the round to make for an exciting finish between the teams.
