Souhegan could have been a great course but this place has a reputation for having way too many sand traps. People warned me about it before I played there for the first time and I thought they were exaggerating and I was amazed to see how many bunkers there were. Im talking 3 or 4 of them on every single hole, and most of them are the size of Rhode Island, I swear. You cant help but hit into them. Very poor design which some people would call "challenging" my friends and I called annoying. A challenging course has doglegs, water, and other obstacles besides huge islands of sand around every green. The other problem was they cram your teetimes in--very rushed feeling for a Friday morning. We werent playing that slowly at all and the starter came around in a golf cart TWICE to nag us to pick up the pace, when we were almost on top of the people in front of us! The second time he came it was within 10 minutes of the first time and my buddy asked him if he thought we were deaf or not, seeing as he just told us 10 minutes earlier to pick it up. He got annoyed and sped away. Good riddance. So, as I said, overrated. There are better places to play in Southern NH. The fairways are kept up well and the course has long, straight fairways, but with the acres of sand and surly employees Id rather golf elsewhere.
I enjoy playing at Souhegan golf course. The greens and fairway are usually in good shape. The pro shop is well stocked with a good variety of clubs and equipment. Staff is friendly. I like the snack bar. They serve beer or wine coolers along with breakfast and lunch items. Only complaint is the starter can seem a bit annoyed by the presence of golfers which is weird because without golfers he doesnt have a job. Also there are alot of sand traps. I wish there were a few more doglegs or water hazards. Other than that Souhegan is a great place to relax and play some golf.
I really enjoyed this course. The greens were nice and fairways were perfect. The staff was nice and poliete , but some of the people who go there are very ignorant. They legit called the pro shop on us because we were going to slow for them. Which we wernt. They called the shop twice. The staff was nice, but the starter seemed to be irrattated about everything.

I love Souhegan Woods. It is my favorite local golf course. All of the staff are very nice. When I walk in the door, the staff that work at the snack bar already know that I want a ginger ale. Their greens are perfect and sometimes I stay there for up to 5 hours just working on chipping and putting. Thanks to souhegan, I won NHJGA girls golfer of the year.
Greens were not it good shape! red, white and blue markings were hard to find or non existent. And not one cooler of water on the course at any hole... Too pricey for that type of crap.... Also sand traps for the most part were not sandy just flat land with no grass and a sprinkling of sand, with quite a bit of small stones mixed in....
Course is not too bad. Not anything spectacular but the part that gives this place a low rating is the consistently terrible customer service and general attitude of the staff. Always short, always not smiling, I am quite sure they just dont like people under 50. I am done going there.
Played a fall season round, the course was beautiful from firs to girs, if your in the area I would definitely recommend the course
On the weekends the start people of the front and back beware. Slow play, bunkers everywhere, decent shape at best.
Great course, well kept and there was a nice flow to it. John the pro was very friendly and helpful.
