The Omni Mount Washington Resort features a classic Donald Ross-designed golf course opened in 1915.
The course was restored a few years back by noted modern day architect Brian Silva, who based his work on the original Ross plans. Silva also restored the resort’s challenging nine-hole Mount Pleasant Course (opened 1895) in 1989 in collaboration with partner Geoffrey Cornish.
The Mount Washington Course is challenging yet approachable for all skill levels and carries a rating of 73.7 and a slope of 124 from the back tees. Ross and then Silva imbued the course, a rather unique meadowland layout in a mountain setting, with character and challenge. The course features mildly undulating greens and a number of bunkers that complicate navigation. There are three other sets of tees to meet the playing ability of each guest.
The Mount Pleasant Course plays to a yardage of 3,215 from the tips, and has multiple sets of tees for all skill levels. A new 6-hole family option is a great way for the entire family to enjoy the game before or after taking in other activities, and kids 12 and under staying at the resort golf for free when accompanied by an adult.
Both courses are set in some of the most picturesque surroundings in the Northeast near an ancient riverbed at the base of Mount Washington, the highest peak in the region. The Mount Pleasant course opened way back in 1895 and hosted such early golf luminaries as course designer Alex Findlay, British golf stars Harry Vardon and J.W. Taylor, and U.S. Open champion Willie Anderson.
