Woodstock Country Club is one of New England's top destinations for visitors, earning a spot on Golf Magazine's list of top 100 golf resorts in the world. Robert Trent Jones designed the course, taking advantage of the panoramic views of Kedron Valley and the scenic and varied terrain. The golf course has a classic design that stretches to just over 6,000 yards from the back tees. Though the holes may seem short by modern standards, you'll soon find out that they require thought and will test your shot-making skills. Water comes into play in the form of a long, meandering creek that traverses the length of the course. It feeds into a large lake that comes into play on the 12th and 13th holes. It's a challenging golf course but not overly difficult for the average player.

The course and club are outstanding. However, for my buddies and I, the repeated river hazards, often twice on each hole, are simply too much to bear! Sorty.

The Woodstock Country Club is the shortest most challenging course I have ever played. Lots of trouble, small greens and narrow landing areas. It’s also quite wet at this time so playing a bit longer than normal. Working the ball right to left is the best shape shot for this track. Enjoy the challenge!

Staff is very nice and helpful. Course is in good shape and runs along a creek that comes into play on many holes. Challenging but fun. Easily walkable as well. Beautiful trees in the fall.

This is a short course, but very challenging. The rough is very high and when wet (in the am) very difficult to hit from. The fairways and in great shape and the overall design is very nice. There are 1-2 holes that are not great, but the rest are really nice.

The greens were a little on the slow side, but they have had a lot of rain recently and probably why.

Overall, highly recommend playing this course when in town.

I played Woodstock CC this past weekend while in town for a wedding. The course was simply wonderful. Set in the valley of a small mountain range in historic Woodstock, VT, you must play here if you are in the area. The fairways, bunkers and greens were in fantastic shape. Although the track is not long, it is certainly challenging with old school New England feel.

The staff was friendly and welcoming. In particular Jim, Casey, Larry and Alex. Their friendly faces greeted us before and after the round and we had a few laughs together!

You can really tell that there is great leadership in place at the club by the way the operation is run.

Will certainly be back and cannot wait!
