    There's a course south on Route 16 called Indian Mound that is supposed to be really nice. My brother in law plays there a lot. I have a summer place in Moultonboro (will be up there this weekend!) and play at Waukewan in Meredith, open to the public. Meredith is a great town to visit as well (about an hour south of Conway). Don't usually play golf up in North Conway, as we hike and shop. I've played as a guest at Bald Peak in Moultonborough but don't think they accept walk ins - its a private club overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee.

    Here's the info on Indian Mound: Indian Mound Golf Club

    FYI, There is one of the best beer pubs across the Maine border from North Conway, so not far, in Lovell, ME. if you're into beer, Beer Advocate rates it 100, world class! We always hit it if we run up north. There are also brew pubs for Moat Mountain and Sea Dog which are fun but the beers at Ebenezers are truly outstanding.

    Here you go.

    Seriously, best course within "reasonable" driving distance is probably Point Sebago, off Sebago Lake in ME. Right off 302. It's about an hour's drive from N. Conway.

    Don't drive anyplace. Right in the center of North Conway at the railway station the course is just fine and beautiful mtn and river views. A bit expensive but I make the drive once a year to play it.
    Terrain is flat and open but has moguls, some water holes, tiered greens, trees, and is very pleasant. @Drumguy I am also in Moultonborough on Moultonborough Neck off of Shaker Jerry Rd. I'm a member at Ridgewood CC if you have an interest in playing sometime with another Boneyarder.

    North Conway CC isn't bad. There is also a great and scenic 9 hole course that isn't bad.

    the White Mountain Hotel has a nice course. Used to have a house in Glen which is 5 minutes from North Conway. Nice area

    We have a place on Stanyan Road (Green's Basin) Which is actually very close to you! May take you up on that, I had a friend who used to belong to Ridgewood back in the 90s, and I recall losing a fair amount of balls there, especially that island hole!

    I've always enjoyed Pirate's Cove on Route 16.

    It's relatively challenging and there's 36 holes of what they rightly call 'swashbuckling fun.'

    That's where you drop the kids while you hop across the street to Sea Dog Brew Pub. Keeps the kiddies occupied.

    That is exactly what we do....

    Wives watch kids and gossip, we sneak across the street.

    We're going to be there this weekend, although I don't think the mini golf place opens until summer, so the kids get to come to the bar...

    Hopefully you had a chance to try out Ebenizers, just across the border!
