Pros: Free is good and I like being able to finish a round at a Beer garden. Beautifull views also make it a round worth playing if you are in the area.
Cons: 9 hole courses do not bother me at all, but crappy tee pads and poor signage bum me out. With just a little TLC, this could be a really cool little course. But as it stands now, its just a nice walk with baskets.
Other Thoughts: The highlight of the round was the bakery/brewery. Would play again, but only if I was already in Stowe.

Pros:
Setting/scenery, especially in the autumn.

Two tee locations seven of nine holes. Practice basket.

Even w/o the map, which I discovered post-playing is available in the deli, the course is easy to navigate.
Cons:
Short, natural tees/worn-out spots. Portable baskets.

A couple of approaches are poke-n-hope.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays in a counter-clockwise fashion down/across a mixture of open space/patch of woods next to/below the deli/bakery at the Trapp Family Lodge. Basic teesigns at the long (blue-painted wood) locations will give a rough idea as to the shape of the hole, and there are markers at the baskets for the next tee. The shorter tees, marked by a couple small sections of birch branches, are a bit harder to find. A brief hole-by-hole description, from the long tees:

#1 360', wide open, downslope, water retention basin long-n-left.
#2 350', downslope, broad fairway, requiring/holding a moderate left-turn at the midpoint
#3 330', initially downslope, narrow window at ~130', then flat, basket behind small tree/bushes
#4 395', flat throughout, wide open first 250', then slight right into woods with ever-shrinking windows
#5 316', gently upslope, S-shape through scattered trees, poke-n-hope trees 30' before basket
#6 260', straight but challenging wooded fairway first 150', then open to basket on slope
#7 290', elevated tee just outside of woods, choice of early or late right-turner, poke-n-hope trees at midpoint
#8 180', subtle right-turner up subtle slope within woods
#9 270', open, challenge is right-to-left slope and large tree early on right

Worth a visit if in the area. Food/beer was good, but on the pricey side.

Pros: plays fast. no one playing there in the mornings. Free coffee before 11 am in the bakery. many 2 holes. easy walk to next hole following streams. great signs at each hole.
Cons: only three long holes. some areas off fairways need cleaning. some tee boxes are short.
Other Thoughts: this course is geat because its so close to burlington.
