After the Monadnock Country Club announced it would be closing after its 2016 season due to debt and reduced revenue, it appeared local golfers would have to find some other green to practice their skills. 

But on April 29, the golfing greens opened for the season, as usual – under a new name.

Three enthusiastic golfers, Vickie Brock and Nadia MacStay of Peterborough and Paul Buffum of Wilton have championed the effort to reopen the course under the new name of Hilltop Golf Course. 

Though more than 90 people have committed to buying a membership, Brock said they still need additional members to make the course and club financially viable. 

Fundraising for the club is ongoing. Donations can be made through the club website at Hilltopgolf.net or www.gofundme.com/golfpeterboroughNH.
