Traditionally the province of private country clubs, golf has seemed inaccessible to the uninitiated, an activity only people with money can afford to play.  But a Seacoast community golf course -- with emphasis on the word "community" -- belies the notion that golf is exclusive, offering instead a family-friendly activity that is affordable and fun.

And beyond allowing anyone to participate in what was once an exclusive sport, this venue stands at the vanguard of a green revolution, initiating several sustainable practices that other courses now emulate.

Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club, 101 North Road, North Hampton, NH, and Sagamore Golf Center, the golf course's companion driving range, 22 North Road, North Hampton, focus on accessibility.  You don't have to be a member to play.  In fact, Sagamore doesn't have memberships. It's strictly a daily-fee golf course.
