If this course was a home, you'd say it has great "bones" and is a classic that just needs a little more TLC. The new team here took a neglected work of art and made dramatic improvements to this masterpiece. I only rated conditions a 4 because this was a tough summer and they still have work to do in their restoration. I also rated the off course amenities 4 as they have a fantastic chef and did improve the restaurant but there is still room to improve and the range is OK but not great (there is another area past the 2nd tee for longer shots). All that will take is time and more money (hopefully after more people come and play).

This layout is fantastic and might be one of the best kept secrets in the state. Will it rival the downstate classic private clubs? No. But many of the shots are very similar and I would put this at or near the top of any course in the North Country and Vermont. They are very accommodating to visitors so that is great too.

Other than just keeping on the path they have started, I would only suggest a few things. Cut back a few more trees to allow the turf to grow and/or move a few of the back tees away from trees. Examples: Move 5 back tee to the right away from tree line and 6 back tee forward so they get sunlight. The greens should improve as I saw several bare spots. Also they could weed at the base of the trees.

The ground and bunker placement on these holes are outstanding. As these bunkers get more sand where it is visible to the player, the intimidation will be even greater and will make the holes grab your attention visually.

This course is great for beginners yet very challenging for advanced players, especially if played from the back tees. Birdies are not easy. The views are outstanding and the value cannot be beat.
