This Is my favorite place to golf. I have golfed there about 7 times. The course itself is very beautiful. It is one of the only places in Vermont with a par five. The price is fantastic for what you are getting. They have a wide variety of hole types. The only bad thing I can say is that there clubhouse is very small and not the nicest. The actually course for the price is hard to beat.

So, I tried to find a course that was public and rural. This course was one I found from Google Maps. It isn't far from the city of Burlington. I played it early in the season so the conditions were not the best. Which is the biggest knock I have. Several greens were wrecked, I mean wrecked. I cannot imagine they are repairable. Tee to fairway was pleasing to look at but fairway to green was blah. Small greens that were not holding shots at all. This is a course for guys to go out and drink and have a good time. This is not a course for perfecting your game. If you are looking for a better course in the area, very limited options. Williston Golf Course is the best local public course. Williston is not a must play, but worth playing. This course is not a must play, and avoid the drive.
