Pros: While the adjacent 18-hole Brewster Ridge course plays primarily in the woods, this is meadow golf. I'll come back to that in a second. First off, with the more open nature of the course, the views here are spectacular. The Green Mountains loom just across the street. Of the 135+ courses I've played, this is absolutely in the top 5 for scenery.

Back to meadows. You don't need heavily wooded holes to make for good design. Hole 19 (the holes are 18-27) is my favorite hole of any of the 27 holes on site. The blue and gold tees shoot across a grassy marshy area to the landing area on the other side. There maybe a dozen trees dot the fairway for the rest of the several hundred feet to the basket. There are landing zones, and your preferred throwing style will dictate where you want to land. It's a pretty, well manicured hole that has good design.

Hole 24 is another great hole, playing along the hilly electrical easement. The blue and gold tees shoot from a little ridge with a big bump in the middle of the fairway that you need to clear before the fairway descends on the other side and curves to the left. Fun shot.

The first hole (hole 18) is a fun downhill bomb with only two trees in the fairway, but they dictate how you throw your drive.

The guy at the pro shop forewarned me about the transition from 23 to 24, but the map makes it clear as well.
Cons: Most of the tee pads are just grass. The gold tees were rubber.

Hole 26 and 27 had fairways mowed nicely, but the main "rough" is just taller grass. I'm not a fan of this, since it doesn't give you a tougher shot; it just makes it harder to find your disc.
Other Thoughts: I played both the blue and red tees. The reds are appropriate for beginners but were not simple shots. I enjoyed the blues.

This is one of the longest 9-hole courses I've played, and it's also one of the best. This is a pretty natural extension from the Brewster Ridge course, and I'd recommend playing both. It's $10 for unlimited play on both and well worth it.

Pros: As the Title states this is a meadow course. A great compact layout starting with in sight of the proshop makes this a great course. Wide open holes with ob on either side create a challenge. Just because this is a 9 hole course dose not mean it is a pitch and put. Play the nine hole loop on Brewster and play the back nine on Fox run for a great late after noon round. With the openness of the course you can play well into the dusk hours. Tees are rubber on golds and natural grass on red white and blue. Great mix of shots and super fun layout.
Cons: Super sunny in the middle of the day
Other Thoughts: Great views of the highest peaks in Vermont through out the course. Fair Fairways provide the challenge on the more open layout. This course will improve your game.
