The Ledges is a thoroughly physical test: From the dramatic ups and downs on hillsides to the tight landing areas, you’ll want to bring fresh legs and a couple fresh sleeves of balls. The course holds up well when some of the region’s best amateurs tee it up at the annual U.S. Amateur qualifier, as often just a few under par makes it through. The course has hosted the Monday qualifier for Maine’s Korn Ferry Tour event as well. The Ledges traverses the Maine woods, just over the border from Portsmouth, N.H., and features bold rock outcroppings, dramatically downhill tee shots and large multi-tiered greens.

Breakfast Hill Golf Club

Breakfast Hill Golf Club
Greenland, NH
Breakfast Hill is a Brian Silva design conveniently located just off I-95 a few miles south of Portsmouth. Like many New England layouts, the course is not long but it demands accuracy off the tee, with thick stands of trees lining most fairways. Large rock outcroppings on several holes give the course a distinctly New England feel and are penal hazards as well.
