The Golf Course

Our par-72 Championship course lies amongst woods, farm and pasture land, and rolling hills.  While Neshobe GC affords beautiful mountain views in all directions, it is not a typical “mountain course”, having no severe up- or down-hill lies or blind shots.  Clearly, it is a tribute to our Course Superintendent and his expert staff that players rave about the conditions, featuring 18 distinctive holes which provide a variety of challenges to all facets of the game.

Total yardage from the blue tees is 6341, from the white tees 5746 and from the red tees 5006. Click on the hole number at the left to see a closer look at the individual hole and receive a bit of insight on how it plays.

Short Par 4 with rolling fairway and small sloping green.
Pro's Tip:  Play it down the middle and leave approach below the hole.

A blind tee shot down the middle will play well into a pitch shot to a small green  protected by bunkers on the right and back sides.
Pro's Tip:  Make sure group in front of you is out of range.

Avoid the bunkers on the left and the trees on the right.  Approach shot is slightly uphill to a large green that can offer challenging hole locations.
Pro's Tip:  Make sure you hit enough club on your approach to green.

The longest Par 4.  The tee shot is from an elevated tee to a generous landing area.  The large, tiered green is well protected by bunkers.
Pro's Tip:
  Hit approach shot to left front of green to avoid sand on right.

“OB” and bunkers on the right.  A  long hitter can reach the green in two.
The green is relatively narrow, but long front-to-back.
Pro's Tip:  Play tee shot to left side of fairway to avoid trouble on right.

A nifty par 3 with great difference is length from the blue and white tees.
A hole location in the back of the green can be tough to get close to!
Pro's Tip:   Make sure to hit extra clubs when wind is out of the north.

Temporarily a Par 3 until new #7 fairway and green are ready in late summer 2012.   Small green makes good distance control a must.

Elevated tee shot makes this a nice driving hole.  Green is reachable in 2, otherwise you are left with an approach to a large, elevated green.
Pro's Tip: 
Keep shot to green below the hole on this back to front slope.

A true  “risk and reward” Par 4 that many use driver off the tee to get on or near the green.    Choose enough club to approach this elevated green.
Pro's Tip:   Hit it straight if you go for it!

”The Toughest Par Three in Vermont.”  A carry of 190 yards over the Neshobe River greets players on the back tee of this hole.
Pro's Tip:  Hit enough club to clear the water.

Longer hitters can carry the bunker on left on this beautiful Par 5.
The large green can be reached in two or lay up to your favorite yardage.
Pro's Tip: Closer to the green on 2nd shot is a flatter lie for approach.

A downhill tee shot to a large green with trouble long and left.
Deep bunkers protect the right side.
Pro's Tip: Favor left side for tee shot on this sloping green.

This hole requires a straight tee shot to a sloping fairway and a precise second into a narrow green that can feature challenging pins.
Pro's Tip: Accuracy is more important than distance on this beautiful hole.

Slightly downhill Par 5 with large landing area. Most lay up short of the hazard on 2nd shot, leaving an approach of  140 yards into a long green.
Pro's Tip: A good tee shot can set up opportunity to go for green in two.

Great Par 4 that features a wide fairway with a well-bunkered green that has breaks that can be difficult to read.
Pro's Tip: Takes two good shots for birdie chance on this golf hole.

Deep pot bunkers and majestic pine trees protect this driveable Par 4.
Split fairway offers choice of approach shot.
Pro's Tip: Straight tee shot sets up a birdie opportunity.

A beautiful short Par 3 with a downhill iron shot into a large, tiered green.
Pro's Tip:  Play your yardage even though its downhill.

A picturesque finishing hole with elevated tee featuring OB left,
water right and deep greenside bunkers.
Pro's Tip:  Slightly uphill 2nd shot so hit enough club to carry bunkers.
