About Baker Hill:
In the spring of 1998, a small group of ardent golfers gathered to discuss the possibility of creating a championship golf course in the Lake Sunapee area.  The intent was to create a private member-run club that would be enjoyable for both the competitive and the recreational golfer.  A piece of land with rolling terrain and magnificent views was obtained.  Rees Jones was hired to design what now stands as one of the most outstanding courses in the Northeast.  Baker Hill opened for play in 2001.

Baker Hill offers no tee times and is friendly to all skill levels with playing yardages from 4,300 to 7,200 yards.

In 2003, Baker Hill was voted The #9 Best New Courses in America by Golf Digest, and has been the Top Private Club in New Hampshire for 12 of the past 14 years.

Dress Policy:
Appropriate golf attire is required for men, women and children, including slacks, skirts and golf shorts for women and golf shorts and trousers for men.  Athletic or short shorts, exercise clothing, blue jeans, tee shirts, tank tops, and cargo pants are unacceptable.  Shirts must be tucked in while using all Baker Hill facilities.  Caps must be removed in the dining and lounge areas of the clubhouse.  Caps worn in other parts of the Club must have brims facing forward.

Pace of Play:
- A foursome should complete 18 holes in 4 hours and 12 minutes.
- Twosomes have priority to tee off before 7:30am Friday through Monday, reducing the possibility of having to play through multiple foursomes.
The busiest times on the course are Thursday through Saturday 8:00 am - 11:00 am.  To a lesser extent, weekdays between noon and 2:00 pm are also busy.

Personal Electronic Devices:
Common courtesy should prevail in the use of personal electronic devices (cell phones/tablets/laptops.)  Texting, talking and viewing emails are distracting to fellow players and to those around you in Club buildings.  Phones may be used for emergencies, but please deal with these situations discreetly.  Ringers should be turned off at all times.
