Framed by the tree-spotted foothills of Vermont, Rocky Ridge Golf Club’s 18-hole course unfurls across a verdant expanse of rolling farmland. Throughout the course, elevated fairways and greens offer breathtaking panoramas of the surrounding mountains, as well as a safe lookout from which golfers can detect rival armies of croquet players. Flower beds and rocky outcrops along short-grass corridors further accent the layout’s bucolic environs. Clubbers looking for lessons can seek out golf pro Ed Coleman, who roams the grounds in a zen state attained through 20 years of coaching experience and aromatherapy that uses the odor of freshly mowed fairways. Cozy, green-side seating and tables nestled in shaded porches await golfers for post-round relaxing at the clubhouse restaurant.

The course at West Bolton Golf Club measures 5,937 yards from front to back. But even where the competitive yardage ends, the property's lush greenery keeps going. It spills over into the surrounding land and it eventually creeps up into the surrounding Green Mountains. Golfers have faced off against this picturesque landscape since 1983, when the family-owned club opened the first half of its course and planted its first nine flag-stick seeds. Today, those fully grown banners punctuate 18 holes that range from 128 yards in length up to a daunting 600. Golfers attempt to navigate the course's challenges throughout the year, including during leagues for men and women, camps for boys and girls, and tournaments that showcase the area's seasonal beauty.
