My wife and I chose to play Brattleboro Country Club as part of our golf tour of New England states because it fit the travel plans and itinerary more than any ratings and rankings it had received. I can say we made a great choice and also wonder why the course did not get mention in reviews for the state of Vermont.

They suggested we start on number ten since there league that night would be playing the back nine and therefore we would not run into any issues or delays trying to get our round completed. Number ten is a par five with small but sight denying hills along the way. This would be how the course was most of the day, very playable but challenging. The greens were immaculate, quick and true.

We were very happy with the choice to play Brattleboro CC, the course was a gem in the southern Vermont hills. The staff was very friendly , as we are finding in the New England courses we have played to date.

Don’t pass up to play this course…it is minutes over the VT/Mass border.

A very nice golf course with lovely views of the mountains and hills. The greens were not in the best of shape and a little bumpy, but it would not hold me back from playing here again. The layout of the course and mixture of holes was excellent.

Hilly mountain course. Beautiful scenery. Will be better as leaves change. Had a great time. Be ready for uneven lies, trees, rocks etc etc.<br/> Only complaint are cart paths are very hard on the back.<br/> Hamburgers were best of summer golf season.

Very nice layout with a few hidden surprises and more than a few blind shots. It would be good to have a better map/key to the course showing the hidden hazards for us out of towners. Earlier this year the greens were apparently pretty bad but they were very nice yesterday. Still a bit bumpy, but I'm sure improvement will come along with time.

The website warns about the greens being damaged but it does not do justice to the extent of the damage. They are not playable at present as the amount of grass on each green is probably 20% or less. Despite this the staff in the pro shop would not let me out anytime earlier than my appointed golf now hot deal time without extorting an additional $20 cart fee for the privilege of playing their winter destroyed course. Great layout, nice elevation changes, but no fun to be had until the greens recover.

I understand what winter kill is and what it can do to greens , but it seems as if there has been no attempt to get the greens back, no aeration, no bone meal added, I waas told that there was some winter kill on the greens, but they are still charging a premium price, luckily we got in on a "hot deal" from golf now.<br/> It is a very pretty course, good tee boxes and very nice fairways, some tricky shots if you dont know the course, i would love to play this course with good greens...hope the greenskeeper can get with a turf specialist to fix the greens

So the Winter of 2013-14 still rears it's ugly head even on June 16th. I figured to play this course as it was a half-way meeting place for a friend from upstate VT. As mentioned before, the greens have taken a beating. After the round I could only think of a few holes where I putted on 'real' grass. As it was a great value with golfnow, it didn't bug me as much as it would have paying full price. The course layout is typical VT hill course, with nice views, narrow fairways and blind shots to the green. Maybe because of the 3 days of rain beforehand, they might have been behind in cutting the fairways, as clumps of grass gave the course an overall ragged look. The bunkers were in top shape with proper sand mix.<br/> I'm sure they are not the only VT course to have been ravaged by the harsh Winter, and the greens with proper care will bounce back, but for the rest of this year, I'll be playing back down here in Western Mass.

I was treated like a low life form due to booking with Golfnow. The Proshop was rude and unwilling to let me go out 1 minute earlier then booked tee time, even with lots of open tee times before mine. He said your "Golfnow" like it was an insult.

The greens were hacked and the course is a Cowpasture. The normal rate was absurd for what the course is.

The club house had stacked broken tables and chairs on the porch and looks like a horders house.

Their use of the term "COUNTRY CLUB" is VERY liberal.
