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.

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.

This course is a typical average public course. Fees are way to high for what you get. Rocks in the fairways, empty water jugs, little or no water in the ball cleaners, no rangers to keep up the pace of play, ball marks all over the greens, and they have to "balls" to charge $65 for prime time golf.

I liked this place a lot. First impressions are that it looks far too nice to be a PUBLIC course! Nice clubhouse, friendly staff, great little bar area. I thought we were in the wrong place! But, the prices sure didn't fool me - the reason it all looks so nice is reflected in their high fees. The course itself was pretty good. No real complaints from me. It was wide open, had some challenging holes, yes the greens could be in better shape but they were ok by me. I had fun playing here and you will too.

Nice and wide open!

The good: This course is wide open, there are very few fairways that you can miss, and when you do you're in luck because you will find yourself on the neighboring fairway! This is a fun course to play with well maintained fairways that are well marked with yardage tags on the sprinklers and the tee boxes are in pretty good shape. The Par 3, 8th is my favorite hole, it's about 195 yards and there is a pond that you have to hit over, very challenging but very rewarding when you hit a nice shot. The front nine finishes up on a 530 yard par 5 where you are greeted by a patio full of golfers enjoying a beer at the 19th hole. The Club House/Pro Shop is very nice with the usual array of beer and pub food. The Pro Shop is pretty small and they don't offer a wide range of clubs but they do have cigars which is always nice. The practice facilities are great, nice putting green right next to the first hole, they have a good size driving range too.
The bad: My biggest complaint is the greens, they need some work, especially the first one, what a way to great a golfer who is excited to be on in two, then with a 3 putt because the green looks like it was used as a stage for a rock concert the night before... they get better from here but they are in big time need of some love.
Overall: This is a fun course to play, there aren't a lot of holes that make you check up, so make sure you have your driver and don't be afraid to use it!

There was goose droppings all over one of the greens and it smelled bad especially when downwind.The greens were in rough shape and inconsistent.A drunk "golfer" with a bad attitude hit my drive on the 18th for no reason and wouldnt go away saying he was a lifetime member!!My friend also lost a ball by other players playing the wrong ball.Course has some potential but is currently mediocre at best.There are much better courses out there.Location is convenient to say the best.
