Really delightful track with good variety of shots required. Absolutely beautiful surroundings. Pace of play was bad due to new golfers twosome who had never heard of letting anyone through, was fine after getting around the blockage. Fairways occasionally required "winter rules", but greens were excellent, Just a generally enjoyable course. Food was great afterward.

This was a great course, absolutely beautiful views. It is hard to find a flat lie and that's what makes it challenging because it is not long. There are some tight greens though and the holes are very different. However the tees are not clearly marked and when we finally located the women's tees we took a sharp turn and tried to break on the hill and the brakes did not work because of the wet grass so the cart spun out of control and I was thrown off and hurt myself but not too bad. The pro did buy us some drinks but the cart paths are in poor condition and the terrain steep so drive very carefully. We played at 9:50 and finished in just over 3 hours. Just a fun day!

This is a fun course offering some interesting terrain challenges and some great views on elevated tees. A couple of fairways were a bit bare/damaged, and some small sections of greens had a bit of damage. Overall, however, it is a fun place to play!

Yes, this course does offer some wonderful views, however, the course conditions were far from ideal. Crabgrass tee-boxes,only passable fairways, and many greens with large bare spots. Some holes generous, some very tight. Fractured cart paths almost undriveable. Most important, this course did NOT honor the GolfNow rate, but insisted on charging us their standard green-fee. Can't say that I would return here anytime soon.

If you enjoy the Green Mountains, of Vermont, don't miss this Scenic track. The overall condition of the course is average, but the layout, and spectacular views of the surrounding country side, is what its all about!!!

I used to play here years ago when we bought the Vermont Golf Around Card, and always liked the traditional layout. OK, so it's not a 'Resort Course', but it's in good condition (especially after this last winter), and it's a blast to play. Although short, it was windy the day we played which made it pretty tough! Some serious elevation changes (both up and down), some 'visually' tight holes, some drivable Par 4's and fantastic views. A very tough walk if you're so inclined. Staff was extremely friendly !<br/> Great value !!!
