Londonderry’s own executive golf course, Londonderry Country Club, has been open and operational to the public for more than 40 years. The club began in 1969 by Forest Kimball as a nine hole, par 27 course. The Kimball’s still run the course, now in their eighth generation. The golf course has undergone changes over the years, and will continue to do so. More than twenty years after its opening, the course became a 3,840 yard par 62 course. The Kimball’s have recently shown their dedication to the family business by commissioning a golf course architect. George F. Sargent will be redesigning holes seven, eight and nine.
The Country Club offers challenging par 4 and par 3 courses, and allows golfers of all experience levels to play the greens. The course can be played, at a walking pace, in about three and a half hours. Golfers may also chose to play all 18 holes, or just the front or back nine.
