The Bellows Falls Country Club is a 9-hole, member-owned club which is open to the public and was founded in 1922 as a six (6) hole course in Saxtons River, Vermont. In 1923, the club moved to our current location in Rockingham with the purchase of 95 acres of farmland with 50 acres of meadow and pastures, a brook, three natural spring holes and the Williams River. This natural landscape of rolling hills, open meadows and natural hazards offered the ideal setting for a parkland style of course that was laid out by 1886 Open Champion and Scotsman David “Deacon” Brown (pictured). Holes have been made longer, starting and finishing holes have changed and many improvements have been made over the last 100 years; yet the layout by Mr. Brown remains relatively unchanged from his 1923 design.
Anthony Pioppi, golf historian and author of “The Finest Nines” describes in his 2018 review article of the BFCC course as, “…a must play jewel in southern Vermont and for fans of golf architecture”; “…...a world class second green”; “…. enjoyable and challenging layouts”; and …there is not a clunker(hole) among them.”
BFCC is a member of USGA, Vermont Golf Association and the Vermont State Women’s Golf Association.
BFCC is open seasonally from mid-April to the end of October with tee-times required by calling 802-463-9809. We are conveniently located in Rockingham, VT on VT Route 103 directly across from the Rockingham Vermont Country Store and approximately 3 miles from Exit 6 off Interstate 91.
