Detailed description

Waukewan Golf Club is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Meredith, New Hampshire.

The course was built on the 250 Almagra Farm owned by Dr. Melvyn Hale (1913-2000), a veterinarian.  Around 1955, Dr. Hale purchased a bulldozer and tractor and began to rough out a nine-hole golf course. He spent three years clearing wooded land, moving rocks, shaping tees, fairways, and greens. In 1958 nine golf holes opened to the

In 1963 Dr. Hale closed his medical practice and turned his full attention to the course. “Waukewan” was chosen as the name because Dr. Hale felt people were familiar with that name due to the near by lake. In the late 60’s Dexter and Allan, Dr. Hale’s sons, joined their father and together completed the next nine holes. This finished the transformation of Almagra Farm to Waukewan Golf 

Waukewan has water hazards on multiple holes including numbers 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, and 18. Most will only come into play with a wayward shot.
