Green Mountain National Golf Course

Green Mountain National is one of New England’s top golf courses and provides 18 holes of championship golf.  This excellent public course is in the middle of the Green Mountains like it was carved out of the forest.  

Pine trees line every fairway, so hitting it straight off the tee box is crucial.  There are a lot of elevation changes and undulated greens, so aiming for the middle is critical.
