Hooper Golf Course is a 9 hole golf course located in Walpole, New Hampshire.
It is located at the top of Prospect Hill in the quaint village of Walpole with the land sitting on what was once a working farm. Wayne Stiles and John Van Kleek had an uncanny ability to use the natural contours of the land and augment them with dips and rolls, bumps and hollows, numerous bunkers and greens that test one's short game.
- In 1997, the New England Golf Guide rated Hooper Golf Course the number one 9-hole golf course in New England.
- More recently, in 2010, "Hooper" was rated as the 11th best 9-hole course in the country by Golf Digest.
- Architect Tom Doak is also certainly an admirer of Hooper, affording it prominence in the Confidential Guide to Golf Courses book, volume 3 as one of his eighteen Gourmet Choice selections, one that he “would take a good friend to play.” In fact, if there was ever an 18-hole composite course composed of Hooper on the front nine and Donald Ross’s Whitinsville in Massachusetts on the back nine then he’d rate this as one of the top fifty courses in America.
