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 third hole sits high above the green level and watch out, there is hidden water below. There is plenty of room behind the green with the hill acting as a backstop but if you push your shot left or right you are bound to wind up in a bunker.
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.
Like the 3rd hole, the fifth hole tee box is perched high above the fairway which in turn sits above the approach to the green. Heavy hitters can make it to the bottom level on the drive but need to be careful to keep your drive out of the trees lining the 6th fairway. A fun dog leg right to work on your long irons and strategy.
The sixth hole is another multi-level fairway - this time with the green up higher on the second level. Big hitters can make it to the top of the hill with a drive but any kind of slice and you will be in the pond on the right.
The seventh hole is one of the most challenging. A short par 4 is compensated by having a steep hill near the landing zone of your drive with a blind shot at the green which is mostly surrounded by a bunker. If your second shot is errant at all you are sure to lose it and have to take a drop.
This par 3 is the shortest of all the par 3's but still provides a nice challenge to hit the right part of the green. The green pitches down from the top to bottom so you will want to make sure to leave your tee shot below the hole or you may have a hard time keeping your second putt on the green.
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 in front of the hole. If you go too far however you will find yourself in the parking lot, so be sure to take your time on your approach.
