hole-by-hole

1

No.

PRO TIP:

The opening hole has a slight rise to the landing area and then a steeper approach to the elevated green. The green is at the highest point of the course.

Out-of-bounds borders the left-hand side and the right side features heavy rough and side/uphill lies. Once you are on the green, the view of Vermont’s Green Mountains is spectacular.

No.

PRO TIP:

This straight par three rewards a shot placed in the center of the green.

Shots to the left of the green may bounce on if they hit the banking.

No.

PRO TIP:

A downhill dogleg right. Be careful not to drive out-of-bounds. The area immediately in front of the narrow entrance to the green is soft and can smother pitch and run shots.

Be sure to take in the New Hampshire mountain view from the tee.

No.

PRO TIP:

A lovely hole that balances risk and reward. Out-of-bounds is along the left side of the hole.

The green is reachable in two shots for long hitters. It slopes from back to front and has some interesting breaks.

No.

PRO TIP:

A tricky hole with a long narrow green.

Shots that hit the steep left banking will normally hang up in the rough and may pose problems with a downhill stance.

No.

PRO TIP:

The longest hole on the course. You hit from an elevated tee over the gully and uphill rough into a flat landing area.

Be sure to avoid the encroaching brush area/wetland just after the 150 marker on the left side of the fairway. The green is receptive to well-placed shots.

No.

PRO TIP:

This hole plays entirely uphill with a flat landing area within 25 yards of the green.

An accurate second shot into a deep multi-tiered green makes this a possible birdie hole.

No.

PRO TIP:

A severe dog leg left to an elevated green that has a number of subtle breaks.

Placement of the drive is more important than distance. Be sure to avoid the bunkers on the hill that guard the green.

No.

PRO TIP:

Pause a moment to enjoy the view of Mt. Ascutney and then send your drive to the left-middle of the fairway to open up the approach into this deep green.

A good birdie hole.

10

No.

PRO TIP:

This hole is all downhill to lowest part of the course.

Drives that find multi-tiered landing area will set up nicely for approach shots to this large green. Avoid the tall rough to the left and right of the fairway.

11

No.

PRO TIP:

An eagle possibility for longer hitters and a birdie chance for others. The downhill fairway ends before a deep gully that separates the fairways from the green area.

A deep bunker on the hillside guards the green so try to avoid it . The long green is a long narrow one.

No.

PRO TIP:

This short hole plays deceptively tight. Don’t overshoot the green!

The mounds on the left will direct shots onto the putting surface. There are nasty pot bunkers hidden in front of the green.

No.

PRO TIP:

No.

PRO TIP:

The elevated tees provide a great view of the landing area above the hill.

The green has a narrow entrance after some intermediate bunkers and drops steeply from front to back. A back hole location leads to imaginative putts!

No.

PRO TIP:

This is a very pretty hole.

A deep pot bunker is hidden from view above the left bunker. The green is receptive and putts are very true.

No.

PRO TIP:

This hole deceptively runs uphill its entire distance and plays longer than the stated distance.

The green has a large depression in the center area. Deep  fescue makes for difficult recovery shots from the back green.

No.

PRO TIP:

A straightaway hole with a long, yet narrow green.

If you are left of the green, you may be faced with a blind pitch to the green up a steep bank. To the right of the green is a downhill pitch off a steep banking.

PRO TIP:

Take your time to look at the magnificent view of Vermont’s Green Mountain Range as well as Mt. Ascutney.

This hole is another birdie opportunity. A slightly elevated fairway plays to an open green.
