Designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Robert Trent Jones, with fairway layouts that range from lakeside and mountain locations to sweeping valley vistas, Vermont’s courses offer some of the finest settings and most exhilarating challenges in the country.

In terms of scenery, the courses at Stratton, Haystack, and Mt. Snow, or the Mt. Anthony course in Bennington, top the list.

If you’re looking for a challenge, Mt. Snow and Haystack, and Stratton’s 27-hole course will test and sharpen any game. On the flip side, there are other lovely nine-hole courses where you can golf at a leisurely pace, honing your game on gentle, forgiving fairways.
