Pease Golf Course Now 27 Holes

Construction has finished up on a nine-hole addition at Pease Golf Course in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The new holes opened on Labor Day 2001. The par-36 side measures 3,400 yards from the tips. The new holes are similar to the original 18 holes – with tight landing areas that penalize misdirected tee shots and testy approaches into slick, smallish greens. The all-new 27-hole Pease Golf Course encompasses a tidy 115 acres.

Ted Seavey, the course’s general manager, designed the new holes. The architect for the original 1901-built Pease course was Alexander Finley. Renovations on that 6,328-yard, par-71 layout included removing out-of-bounds markers along interior areas to lessen the penalty the pernicious pale poles present.
