I have played this course about a dozens times this season. It requires good ball striking as well as a good short game (if you miss the green in the wrong place one will definitely be penalized). As I am not a long hitter it makes the course a little more demanding as quite often I am unable to approach the greens with any club shorter than an 8 iron (I play from the white tees). If one is a long hitter (air carry the driver 260 or longer) it should really come down to how good one putts to play well here as a driver will not be necessary here and if used will only be a short pitch on most holes. The greens probably are the most difficult aspect here as they are generally fast and some have quite a bit of slope to them (especially 6, 10, 11 and 18), in fact I think 18 borders on being unfair. All in all the course has a lot of character as all the holes are different and have various challenges to them.

Course was in excellent condition. You need to keep the ball in the fairway since the rough is thick. Be below the hole on most greens.

The greens were recently punched, but were still remarkably true and way faster than any other course I've played in this area - very nice. The fairways and tee boxes were in very good condition. Pretty good layout with a number of scenic vistas. Some tight driving holes require solid precision from the tee. All in all, a challenging but mostly solid layout. Staff was super friendly, and there's a great outdoor deck overlooking the 18th green , ideal for a post round drink. I posted almost 200 rounds last year, and this is one track that I look forward to playing again.

As always the CC of Barre was a great day. Booked the round online - had no issue checking in. Picked up a cocktail pre round - breezed thru the front 9, had to weather a minor hail storm before turning but continued on and really enjoyed the day. The greens were firm and fast but putted true. Fairways and rough were manageable, and the bunkers were well maintained as always. We venture here a couple times a season, and only wish it was closer so we could join!

My favorite course in Vermont among those that were built at least 75 years ago. A classic layout, that tests all parts of your game. One of the Green Mountain State's true gems. A must play, if you are a real golfer.

Nice layout with great views. Greens are very fast and nothing stays on them. Each hole is different and overall the course is a good challenge but the bunkers have not been trimmed and overall upkeep is lacking. The course is worth a try but be ready to three putt.

Very much enjoyed my round at the CC of Barre. An interesting design with lots of character. For so early in the season it was in surprisingly good condition. Only downside was range hadn't yet opened for the year so I couldn't hit any full shorts before the round, but their practice putting/chipping green was excellent.

Greens were very good, and quite fast. I had a great ball striking day for me, hitting 14 greens in regulation, but had 38 putts and shot 78. I putted off the green on two different occasions. :-D. Greens were smooth and were rolling quite good, I just don't have that soft touch yet this season required to putt quick greens like that.

Lots of elevation changes and a few blind tee shots kept round interesting. Overall I had a great time and will definitely come back to play again.
