In part one of this two part series on the best golf courses in Vermont, we introduced you to Green Mountain, Rutland and The Links at Lang Farm — but there are so many great courses in the state that you knew we couldn’t stop there. So, here are three more “gotta play” golf courses to visit in Vermont this fall.
Jay Peak Golf Course in Jay, Vermont
There’s no better place to see the magnificence of Northern Vermont than at Jay Peak Golf Course. The beautifully manicured course is carved out of the Vermont woods, with challenging undulating greens and natural waterways to help keep you focused on your game. Golfing in the woods has never been so amazing, there’s a reason that GolfWeek has repeatedly ranked Jay Peak as the number one Public Golf Course in Vermont.
Stratton Mountain Golf Course in Stratton Mountain, Vermont
Nestled in the Green Mountain National Forest, the Stratton Mountain Golf Course has been providing world class golf to players of all skill levels since the first nine opened in 1964. Since then, the number of holes has climbed to 27, but architect Geoffrey Cornish never intended to build a course that excluded family play. Stratton Mountain has hosted six LPGA tour events in its life, but the modern style course with elevated greens, long holes and narrow greens is also perfect for a weekend golf getaway.
Stowe Country Club in Stowe, Vermont
If you can visit only one dramatic Vermont golf course this season, make it the course at Stowe Country Club. The course is built along the slopes of Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak, reaching an elevation of 1,800 feet. Unique challenges include holes with sharp drops and narrow fairways, boulders and undulating greens, and spectacularly distracting scenery.
A day at Stowe Country Club is a day spent immersed in all the best that Vermont has to offer, from forests to rugged mountain terrains to serene lakes and waterways. The Black tees have a course rating of 72.1 and a slope rating of 141, but if you’re not ready for that level of play, the Green tees are rated at just 62.9 with a 105 slope rating.
