Golf Course Information
In the 1960's, increased demand for golf posed a problem for the Manchester areas innkeepers and residents. The only course that could be played on a daily fee basis was the Equinox Links, which the hotel management would close to public play whenever they booked a large convention. At the same time, individuals acquiring either retirement or vacation homes encountered full memberships at the private clubs.
In the mid 1960's, the owners of several area lodging properties began to consider whether a new golf facility might be developed, one at which they could assure access for their vacationing guests as well as membership for local residents. Invitations for a series of planning meetings were extended to all that were interested in golf to see if the combination of play by lodge guests and by local residents would make a third course in Manchester feasible.
Two early developments were crucial in what proved to be the successful launching of the Manchester Country Club. The planning committee established close ties with the National Golf Foundation (NGF), an organization whose primary goal is to assist in the sound development of new golf facilities. The NGF referred the group to Geoffrey Cornish of Amherst, Massachusetts, a golf course architect of long excellent reputation who at that time was also serving as President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects.
At about this time, an option became available on 165 acres of the former Senecal Farm, the present site of Manchester Country Club, which Cornish viewed as very suitable for a first class 18 hole golf course.
