Newport Golf Club's 18-hole course sprawls across 143 verdant acres of the Sugar River valley, guiding players along distinct front and back nines with sections of rolling pastureland and other areas carved out of a forest of mature pine, oak, and cherry trees. The course was founded in 1920 as a nine-hole course that took advantage of the site's natural hills and running streams, and remained that way for 70 years. In 1989 the course was extended to its present length, with a back nine that intercepts the Sugar River at various points among the pine trees, mirrored ponds, and indigenous tribes of golf ball hunter-gatherers.

You can’t talk about Eastman Golf Links without mentioning the scenery. Situated amidst 3,700 acres of environmentally protected woodlands, the 18-hole course tunnels through thick groves of trees and around six ponds. Its hilly terrain offers both elevated views of the unspoiled landscape as well as a safe place to look out for charging tribes of territorial sand trap rakes. The picturesque par-71 plays to 6,731 yards from the farthest tees—presenting a formidable challenge for experienced golfers—but shrinks to 5,499 yards when played from the shortest of four tee options.

Though the course is Eastman Golf Links centerpiece, guests can consider it a one-stop resource for all their golfing needs. A trio of experienced instructors lends their fairway-splitting savvy during private lessons, and also offers club-fitting services using FlightScope Launch Monitors. A driving range with both grass and turf hitting bays fosters practice sessions as does a practice green and a 9-hole short course. Guests can sample a collection of 150 demo clubs to find the one that best suits their game or scratches the parts of their back that are hardest to reach.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Length of 6,731 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 72.8 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 129 from the farthest tees * Four tee options * Scorecard

Most sports require specialized gear, and rock climbing is no exception. In addition to climbing shoes, rock climbers wear a harness attached to a rope. At Green Mountain Rock Climbing Center, belay classes show first-timers that this rope is a safety feature and not meant for playing double dutch with a giant. Once climbers have these skills under their belts, they may challenge themselves by ascending walls up to 40 feet tall or venturing inside a bouldering cave, though not before making sure it's free of hermit trolls.
