A Rich History of Golf at St. Johnsbury Country Club
Golf began in St. Johnsbury in 1923 when Willie Park, Jr., two-time winner of the British Open designed nine diverse, interesting and singular golf holes for the newly formed club. It would be the last of Park’s 60 North American designs due to his ailing health. The installation of the greens was completed by his brother Mungo.
In 1992 famed architect Geoffrey Cornish, aided by lifelong member Jim Havers, cradled the original nine in the embrace of nine peripheral holes. While the older holes require finesse, the new nine demand power. Bring your best up-and-down skills to par the outward half, display placement and clear thinking on the way home.
There are three factors to consider when looking for a golf-course: quality, value and fun. St. Johnsbury Country Club scores a hole-in-one on all three.
1. Quality: St. Johnsbury has earned a reputation for flawless greens, lush fairways and well-carpeted tees. The maturity of the original nine holes and the state-of-the-art new loop blend together to produce two distinct golfing experiences that complement each other perfectly.
2. Value: There's no contest here. St. Johnsbury offers reasonable rates, and much more value for your golfing dollar than you're accustomed to.
3. Fun: The fun begins with the scenery, the course, the staff and the shotmaking. Play at your own pace on the historic links with all modern amenities. You will be back to rise to the challenge again.
