About Us

Bald Peak, the only lakeside private country club in New Hampshire, offers 1000 acres of unspoiled natural beauty with breathtaking views.

In this idyllic setting, members enjoy golf on a challenging Donald Ross course, clay court tennis, water sports, beach activities, and an endless array of social, dining and junior events. While the superb facilities and natural beauty are incomparable, the lifelong friendships fostered through fun filled summers are the true treasures of Bald Peak. Our members come to the lake for complete relaxation and to enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings with their families. Bald Peak provides an added dimension to life at the lake by offering exceptional dining, a chance for young children and teens to gather and meet friends, and an endless variety of social and sporting events for adults. Whether you prefer traditional golf tournaments, bridge, a casual game of tennis, arts and crafts, swimming, kayaking or hiking, there are activities for you at Bald Peak.  Membership options at Bald Peak are flexible, but most important, membership is fun for families of all ages. Our members travel from far and wide. Some members live on campus, while a majority of our members commute to the club daily, by boat or by car, from neighboring lakeside towns. For our members and sponsored guests, overnight accommodations are available in the clubhouse or in nearby cottages. When members drive through the Bald Peak gates, they are instantly immersed in the beauty of the surrounding landscape and eagerly await the joyful times ahead. For more information on membership categories and how to become a member please contact: Alexia Steyn, Membership/Marketing Director at [email protected] or Chris Wyles, General Manager at [email protected].

  • History

      At the turn-of-the-century

      The eccentric Thomas Gustave Plant built his dream estate on the picturesque slopes of the Ossipee Mountains, near the Bald Peak.  As he looked down at Lake Winnipesaukee, he envisioned an idyllic country club where his friends could gather.  With compulsive attention to details, Mr. Plant planned a golf course, clubhouse, boathouse and guest cottages that matched the grandeur of the setting. The Bald Peak Country Club was incorporated in 1920. Two years after breaking the first ground, Plant's dream was realized.  In the early years, many of Plant's friends gathered at Bald Peak. Today, Plant's nearby home, named Castle in The Clouds, is no longer part of the Club property, but the house and grounds are preserved and maintained, for all to enjoy, by The Castle Preservation Society.  Bald Peak's original buildings are still beautifully perched on the hilltop overlooking Winnipesaukee. The thousand acre property provides unmatched privacy with stately pine forests, pristine lakefront, and picturesque rolling hills.  Over the years, the original ridge cottages have been converted to private homes and additional private residences have been added along the lake shore and hillsides.  One third of our members live on the Colony Club property while a majority of our members live in neighboring lakeside towns.
