Terrible venue for a wedding. Christina the wedding coordinator is the worst...horrible communication and no attention to detail.
Absolutely horrible course. They were overbooked. There were several rangers on the course who were interrupting games and pushing people along. They even drive in front of players when they were driving/hitting balls. One poor man's ball hit the cart because they drive right in front of their game. Terrible customer service. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. We even tried to get a hot dog at the 9th hole and were told that we had to go to the next hole immediately. Rude employees. And it's overpriced to boot. Not at all pleased. Golfing is supposed to be relaxing. We will never return or recommend this course. One star. If there was a no stars option, that what they would get.
Although Candia is the easiest courses in Southern New Hampshire, with a wide open layout and links style play(without the gorse & pothole bunkers), it remains a solid option for the average golfer.
The staff at "Candia Woods" and sister course "The Oaks" are the nicest in the state. The laid back attitude makes for an enjoyable round on what is a reasonably well maintained course. My chief complaint on maintenance is the rocks and bumps in the fairways/rough. For about the last 5 years the greens have been in great shape and rival the best public courses in the state. The front nine is wide open with little chance of going OB and then the back nine gets a little tighter.
They have a unique membership option whereby you load a debit card with cash and recieve discounted rates for as long as you have it. They call this the Evergreen membership and the discounts are available at both Candia Woods and sister course, The Oaks. The other nice thing about the memebership is that you get to hold your GHIN and enjoy discounted rates for the leagues and practice range.
As long as the price remains reasonable, this a good course to play frequently to work on your game without loosing a ton of balls. For a more challenging round on nicer playing surfaces and the same friendly staff try The Oaks.
I still like this course but they lose a star - and should lose another, due to a recent visit.
The old guy behind the counter is clueless. I came in to sign up for a foursome, only I didn't know the last name of the guy it was under. My group was on the tee box, and I had to run outside to get the guys' name. I came back in - had to STAND IN LINE AGAIN!? No help from the old man! I get up to the counter - give him the name - he has no clue. Takes FOREVER to sign me up. It was impossibly frustrating.
The greens were recently airated - and it made putting a complete mess. It was horrible.
I still like the course and recommend it - it is beautiful and quiet - but that guy behind the counter and the cruddy greens really bugged me.
This course has to be one of the most boring in NH. They market it as "Links" golf, but except for having formerly been a fairly flat cow pasture, it's just 18 holes with very little that's interesting. Hit it as hard as you can and then hit it again, putt out and go on to the next hole. The idea is to push as many people around the course as quickly as possible by eliminating anything that resembles an obstacle. There's one dog-leg of any note (their "signature" hole #14) but most people can aim right at the green off the tee. One curiosity is 150 yard markers represented by white posts in the MIDDLE of the fairways.(?)The four-lane highway off in the distance provides a constant drone of noise. Pretty expensive, too, for what you get.
