Golf Course Tour of

The Shattuck

The 157 acre tract was designed by golf course architect Brian Silva with emphasis on the natural beauty that lies here, at the base of Mount Monadnock. You will find the mountain (elevation 3,165 ft)  stands prominently over you on most holes!!

Hole 1 - Par 4
"Monadnock"
A panoramic vista from the tee; a large outcropping of red rock rises up from the lush green fairway with Mt. Monadnock behind. Stony Brook cuts across the fairway at the 150-yard markers and runs down the left side, requiring an accurate shot off the tee.

409 Yards
Hole 2 - Par 3
"Deceiver"
A picture postcard of a golf hole; elevated tees look down over a grassy hillside to a large, bunkered green set in front of a sparkling pond. The tee doesn’t feel all that high, but it’s unusually deceptive (hence the name); the most common error here is over-clubbing.

200 Yards
Hole 3 - Par 4
"Driver's Dilemma"
The green and surroundings are stunning; a stadium-like outcropping of ledge right, grassy mounds left, and forest in back. What to hit off the tee: it’s uphill to a narrow landing area with a deep hazard left and a tough-to-clear ledge jutting in from the right.

405 Yards
Hole 4 - Par 4
"Dare"
A spectacular stand of white birches sits high above the fairway on the right, next to the cart path. This hole dares you to use the lumber off an elevated tee to a fairway being pinched by wetlands on the left and bunkers on the right.

370 Yards
Hole 5 - Par 5
"The Gauntlet"
You won’t see a green like this anywhere else; it’s carved into a 30′ high rock ledge and tucked in behind a natural mountain stream. A long, narrow fairway with trouble along both sides of its entire length – and we mean length; 612 yards from the back tee markers.

612 Yards
Hole 6 - Par 5
"Tripple Threat"
The entire hole as viewed from the green; a stone wall runs the length of the winding fairway with Mt. Monadnock rising up behind. Play it as it was designed; two distinct landing areas and a tight green (bunkers right, hazard left) – unless you feel reeeaaally lucky!

564 Yards
Hole 7 - Par 3
"Carry"
Multi-level elevated tee pads overlook 140 yards of natural brush and wetlands leading to a lush green with thick woods behind. Unless you’re playing the Forward tees, you must carry 140 – 175 yards across the hazard to a wide, shallow green with a small bail-out fairway right.

200 Yards
Hole 8 - Par 4
"Squeeze Play"
Towering white pines stand guard over the landing area; a grand mountain vista greets you when you look back from the green. Your drive must carry a wide hazard, but not be so big that you overrun the approach to the green, pinning yourself behind pines and ledge.

407 Yards
Hole 9 - Par 4
"Shattuck Inn"
A gently rising fairway with a mountain stream cascading along the left side; the clubhouse sits high in the background. A longer-than-it-looks second shot going uphill to a narrow but deep green with grassy mounds left and two deep bunkers right.

386 Yards
Hole 10 - Par 4
"Mountain Draw"
From the highly elevated landing area, a spectacular view of the large green below with Mt. Monadnock serving as the backdrop. A dogleg left with a deep drop-off at the turn. A long drive center of left gives you the best approach to the green; too far left and you’ll go over the edge.

426 Yards
Hole 11 - Par 5
"Double Cross"
As you round the corner of this big dogleg, your first look at the green across the wide, lush fairway and winding stream is impressive. You need a big drive to have a clear shot at the sloping green with a wide stream in front and wetlands right.

432 Yards
Hole 12 - Par 3
"Waterloo"
From behind the green, high up on the cart path; a breathtaking view of the 12th and 13th holes, the 17-acre swamp, and the mountain. You’ve got to carry 75 – 190 yards across a beaver swamp to a wide, shallow green; fairway right, water left, bunkered hillside behind.

199 Yards
Hole 13 - Par 4
"Temptation"
The fairway looks like a thick green carpet laid between an oak-covered, bunkered hillside and an awe-inspiring beaver swamp. How much water do you think you can bite off? The temptation is to go for the green; the safe play is to hit to the 100 yard markers.

315 Yards
Hole 14 - Par 3
"Alcatraz"
The fairway looks like a thick green carpet laid between an oak-covered, bunkered hillside and an awe-inspiring beaver swamp. How much water do you think you can bite off? The temptation is to go for the green; the safe play is to hit to the 100 yard markers.

160 Yards
Hole 15 - Par 5
"Double Trouble"
This undulating green is one of the most striking on the course, situated on a peninsula rising out of a Y-shaped reflecting pond. The landing area for your drive is narrow, while hidden water all along the left side of the second shot says, “Don’t aim at the flag.”

544 Yards
Hole 16 - Par 4
"Driver's Delight"
Over the reflecting pond in front of the tee; a wide rolling fairway and bunkered green with the colonial Gage farmhouse behind. Just keep it straight; there’s deep rough left and right. The big green is slightly elevated, so your second shot may require one more club.

391 Yards
Hole 17 - Par 4
"Lay Up"
From the elevated tee you look down on a deep valley of a fairway below and across to a plateau green carved out of granite ledge. There’s no advantage in going for the green – the lie if you miss is impossible; hit to the 100 yard markers and get your second shot close.

339 Yards
Hole 18 - Par 4
"Home"
Graceful leaning beeches accent the elevated tee; the lush rolling fairway beyond is framed by a stand of white birches left. The fairway slopes hard to the left into the woods. Aim your drive down the right for a clear shot to the biggest green on the course.

Spectacular Surroundings

Golfers find the many wooden bridges that span over ponds and protected wetlands to be unique and exciting, as well as the potential to spot a deer, great blue heron, porcupine, bear, mink, otter, or fox! Local tip: playing this course in the fall months as the foliage bursts in the background can be especially exhilarating!

The Shattuck is an 18 hole public golf course at the base of Mount Monadnock.  The course is a par 72 with a slope rating of 130 from the whites.  Here, we advise you to aim for the markers you’ll see in the middle of fairways on most par 4’s and 5’s.  The average golfer should focus more on the accuracy of their shot, rather than how far he or she can hit the ball.
