The Gnomes Await You
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Two years ago, this course was nearly wiped out due to flooding from Hurricane Irene. Today, you wouldn't know it. The bridge has been rebuilt and the local volunteer effort has helped get the course back into great shape.
The result is a fun, technical course playing around a river which offers players a great way to cool off after a round.
There are definitely some memorable shots here, including one over the river (which, at 190' is easily reachable by most players).
Course flow is pretty intuitive and easy to follow. The only tricky part might be the long walk from 16 to 17.
Cons: It's very short. There really are no chances to throw big drives. In fact, I only used drivers on two tee shots.
There are a couple holes that have little to no fairway defined. There are definitely some opportunities for bad luck to ruin an otherwise good shot.
There are a few holes that are so short they're almost laughable. The tee shot feels more like a short upshot after a good drive on a typical par 3. Hole 11 especially is almost a jump putt from the tee.
Other Thoughts: There really is something for everyone here. Beginners will enjoy being able to reach the pin from the tee while more advanced players can enjoy deuce-or-die golf that tests midrange and putter play.
Overall, this is a great place for a fun, low stress round.
Look out for the gnomes, they are well hidden throughout the course.

Trees Trees and more Trees!
Pros: If you like short holes with trees everywhere, then this course is made for you. Located in the middle of Vermont.
Cons: Trees! There are too many trees. I know it is Vermont and are crazy about trees, but I think on a few holes they should thin them down a little. Bring non-natural colored discs with you in the fall. Leaves everywhere, making it hard to find your discs.
Other Thoughts: I am not too fond of this course at all. It seems to be a little over crowded with trees, and found the holes to be too close together. And the co-op in town is closed by the way. So there is no place in town to get replacement discs when you lose them in the leaves.
