The Bellows Falls Country Club is a nine-hole golf course that dates back to 1922. We have a clubhouse that is relaxing and includes a bar, restaurant, and pro-shop. We also have a screened porch off the clubhouse where members and guests socialize and watch play on the first, second, and ninth holes. We boast about a friendly membership and staff, and we provide a golf environment for players of all abilities. We believe we have an above average nine-hole golf course that offers numerous challenges to all golfers.

The course is hilly with numerous swales and mini-ridges playing off the main hill. We also provide greenside and fairway bunkers and even a little water to make the course interesting. Playing the white tee markers on the front nine and the blue tee markers on the back nine, the course provides a good workout at just under 5,900 yards. (That's 3.4 miles if you hit the ball straight.) We also provide separate red and gold tees for our women players, and we use our red tees for our seniors.

We have one of the best opening holes in Vermont. The first fairway is bordered by the second and ninth fairways, and they are all in play. We offer some holes with great "character" that will help you keep your focus during your round of golf. Our number two hole is a 529 yard par 5 that rolls from the tee to a completely hidden green in a basin about two stories deep. (The members usually wander to the left of the clubhouse before teeing off to determine the position of the flagstick.) Although early in the season the banks around the green act as a funnel, during the summer the rough is kept thick to prevent miss-hit balls from rolling onto the green.

The "Canyon" hole is a 164 yard par 3 over all kinds of trouble. A drop zone, however, will prevent you from a walk on the wild side or returning to the Pro Shop for more golf balls. Our finishing hole is a par 5 that requires an uphill tee shot. At about 430 yards some will make it in two if they can avoid the sand that almost encloses the hole.

Using the white and blue tees, the course has a slope of 117 and a rating of 68.5. It is a great course for the average golfer.

We are open every day between early April and October 31. The public is welcome. Tee times are required.  We do have leagues that play Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Weekends, the public is invited to play anytime after 10:00 A.M. Walking is always permissible and golf carts are available for rental.
