Sunset Hill Golf Course
In 2002, ACT raised over $350,000 to purchase a conservation easement on the Sunset Hill Golf Course in Sugar Hill, NH. This historic property, the oldest nine-hole golf course in the state, was being marketed for residential development. An intense community fund-raising effort succeeded in permanently protecting the course and adjacent woodlands. Funds were also set aside for the property’s stewardship and future enhancement of recreational and conservation uses. The NH Land and Community Heritage Investment Program and the Island Foundation, as well as the generosity of over 300 individual donors, made the project successful.
