A Short State-by-State Glimpse at Some of Vermont’s Best Courses

Set against the dazzling backdrop of the Green Mountains, Okemo Valley Golf Club has long been ranked as one of the finest courses in the state. This par-70 design features fairways filled with dips, ripples and hollows, while the mountain breezes will challenge club selection on nearly every shot.

Amenities include a 9,200-square-foot clubhouse with a locker room appointed in polished brass and rich cherry. After the round, relax at Willie Dunn’s Grille, a 120-seat lounge and restaurant.

The Stowe Mountain Golf Club, designed by Bob Cupp, meanders along the slopes of Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak, reaching an elevation of more than 1,800 feet. This true wilderness golf course winds gently around the sparkling Peregrine Lake and mountain streams. New England hardwood, pine and birch trees line many of the fairways, while elevation changes provide for sweeping views of the surrounding ski slopes and Little River Valley.

The fourth hole is especially memorable. The back tee plays across a winding mountain road and the three forward tees are set upon dramatic boulder walls. Trees are lined behind the back slope, but the entire right side is an open meadow.
