Hanover Country Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Hanover, New Hampshire.
The Hanover Country Club is a Dartmouth College's recreational and athletic facility. It is the home of the Men's and Women's Dartmouth golf teams and the Hanover High School State Champion team. It is a semi-private club and they welcome public play.
The course first opened for play in 1899 as a 9 hole course playing to 2,100 yards. The course was expanded to 18 holes in 1922. Orrin Smith, a former construction superintendent for both Donald Ross and Willie Park, Jr., is credited with the design of the original 18 hole course.
With only minor modifications to the original 18 holes over the next 70 years, renovation was needed to prepare the course for the "modern" game of golf. In 2000, the College embarked on a major renovation of the course. Mr. Ron Prichard, golf architect, known especially for his restoration of Donald Ross courses, was given the task of modernizing the course. Mr. Prichard's design of four new holes and all new tees and greens has resulted in a longer, safer, and more challenging course while remaining inviting to golfers of all abilities. Most importantly, Hanover Country Club has maintained the personality that endears it to those who love the game.
The par-69 course plays to 6,467 yards and a course rating of 68.7 with a slope rating of 118.

Having played Hanover several times a year over the past few years I can say that the conditions are always good, greens firm and fast and difficult to read. A couple of funky holes, particularly 17 from the back tees. It is a bit pricey but a nice course. Tough to walk.
