The Manchester Country Club golf course is a fine example of what is called "old New England design." To the knowledgeable golf buff, this means the natural character of the land has been used to advantage, not bulldozed away to fit an abstract concept. It means challenges that do not require great length or power, but can reward those assets when properly employed. It means greens that are generally small, contoured and well protected-often in subtle ways. It means alternate ways to play many holes to allow players with different skills to be challenged and be competitive. It means giving a golfer, regardless of his level of skill, the opportunity to leave the eighteenth green and say "the course gave me the chance to use everything I know and did not force me to try things I can't do. I was tested and had fun."
Those are the attributes that describe the Manchester Country Club course and make it special...the kind of course everyone likes, but no one will build today, because it doesn't fit the modern television image.
