“Baeutiful Vermont Golf Experience”
Review of Haystack Golf Club

Haystack Golf Club
Ranked #8 of 17 things to do in Wilmington
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 October 2013

This is a very nice course. Not a lot of water (Holes 6, 7, and the brutal Par 5 14th), but very narrow fairways and extremely well maintained. Look out for the penal greens on 4 and 6 (very fast and ptiched). The view from the 11th tee is quenessential Vermont fall - not to be missed!

I';m glad all the golfers like the course at Haystack. While I don't play, I concur that the vistas from the course are outstanding and that includes those you get while having brunch or lunch in the Clubhouse overlooking the practive greens and the ridgeline and Haystack Mtn that are the focal point from the Clubhouse.

What with the temporary damage to downtown from Irene and the closing of some restaurants, my wife and I remembered that we had been out to the Clubhouse a few years ago for lunch and had enjoyed our vists there, so this past summer we decided to revisit it and were glad we did.

First, absent were the crowds that packed the downtown Wilmington breakfast places. Second was the relaxing facility, without the loud din of noise, and the beautiful vistas. Third was the fact that The Clubhouse offered good lunches at reasonable prices and on Sundays brinch with a variety of breakfast offerings.

For the 2-3 Sundays we visited we chose either eggs or omlets which were done to our liking and were rerasonably priced. Service could have been faster but we werre enjoying the view, our conversation and the refills of coffee.

Really nice course, greens were in great shape. Rented a great house on the course, could have walked to the clubhouse. Too bad we couldn't enjoy the clubhouse, bartender was rude and nasty.

This is a nice course with tight fairways and difficult putting. We went in September in a year where there was not much rain and some of the fairways were not in good shape but the greens were well maintained. Fridays on this course are considered weekdays; we couldn’t find another course that did not consider Friday a weekend, so the rates were reasonable at $56 for 18 and a cart. I don't think it’s worth the $86 charged on weekends. Friendly staff who meet you in the parking lot with a cart when you drive in. Staff inside who knew it was our first time asked if we were pleased with the course. Would recommend if you’re in the area. Breathtaking views at every turn.

This is a solid course that is maintained perfectly - the greens are wonderful. It is has challenges but is generally pretty open with a few blind dog-legs. The traps are well placed without being omnipresent. It does have that familiar horizontal slope that only VT golf courses but only on a few holes and it actually makes those holes more fun. But the best part of the course is its sheer beauty. It has breathtaking views, many of them elevated, or in the shadow of Mount Haystack and Mount Snow. Literally, it is distracting, that is how beautiful the course is. Lastly it is a good value...you'd have to pay double in NYC-metro to play on anything this nice.
