Mojalaki Country Club reopens as event venue

July 29, 2021
FRANKLIN — Mojalaki Country Club opened its doors in 1920 as one of NH's most challenging golf courses. It was designed by course architect Wayne Stiles, who also designed Nashua Country Club's course in 1915, at the start of a 40-year career. The spacious clubhouse quickly drew events, such as weddings, retirements, proms, birthdays, and bar mitzvahs in the well-sited building with its grand view of Mt. Kearsarge to the west.

In 2019, Mojalaki Country Club came under new ownership by Franklin businessmen. Entering a new century of service to the community, it will focus on events in the newly renovated clubhouse. The previous 18-hole golf course will now be a great venue for gatherings like outdoor weddings. Foreseen is a Mojalaki-labelled wine from vineyards on the premises, catering to events ranging from corporate meetings to community fundraisers.

In late June, the first event for the new Mojalaki was the surprise retirement party for Franklin's City Planning Director, Dick Lewis.

Co-owners Fred McAllister and Rob Pearlman commented, "It is fitting that our reopening honored Dick Lewis, who ably guided Franklin's economic revitalization for many years."

Mojalaki's new owners and the City of Franklin are excited to see this premium event venue coming back into business.

Mayor Olivia Zink calls it, "A great place to enjoy a wedding or other special event with expansive views of Mt. Kearsarge."

Mojalaki has always inspired people to gather and share life's special moments. Each passing generation has discovered its best use, from Native American hunting grounds to family farm to 20th century golf club. Now in its second century of serving the community, Mojalaki Country Club will continue offering a unique gathering place for celebrations.
