Fun Quick Round

We had a 2:40 tee time but were able to get out early and finished by 6:00. The course was in a nice condition. Some of the back nine holes are laid out oddly with some straight up a hill shot.

Good course - not a lot of trouble

There were a few temp greens in play when I was there , including the 18th which was a pity.
Greens and fairways were nice. Open course , forgiving , with not a lot of trouble a few tight holes where hitting the fairway off the tee was more challenging. But overall a good course.
High handicappers and beginners would find this a friendly course. Low handicappers would enjoy the greens.

Undisclosed construction; poor value

Played this course on the last day of a golf trip in VT. Expected it to be up to the same level as the associated resort, and consistent with the high price, but it was not. Three holes are under construction, and the greens are being aerated, none of which is stated on the website or while booking. When we brought this up, we were told that “we could have chosen not to play when we arrived.” Really, the suggestion was that, after booking the round, driving there with friends, and paying for the round, we should have just chosen not to play! We explicitly asked for a partial refund, which was rejected.

The course will be nice when it is fully reopened, and it has a nice layout, but at the moment it is misleading and a terrible value. Head up to Neshobe or any of the other great courses in VT; better golf for less $.

Well we were expecting to play golf but the weather was horrible it was raining really bad I thought that the golf course would have closed but they stayed open. So I had to forfeit my game. Never got to play golf and lost all my money

Great value in beautiful Vermont setting

Great layout. Tees, fairways and greens were all in great shape. Sand traps were like concrete and didn’t seem like they were being raked daily, which is more of an issue when there are no takes available due to COVID 19.

Beautiful and playable

My wife Cathy and I joined another couple for a fun day of golf. Course was in excellent shape and played in 4 hours. Hitting you second or third shot across a road on the par 5 7th hole can possibly hit a passing vehicle. Will play the Equinox again. J L

New England Gem

This was my second time playing Equinox and it lived up to my nostalgic memories. The backdrop is second to none. Greens and fairways were in fabulous condition. The rough was a little burnt due to over mowing and a minor drought Vermont is currently in. I could play this course every day. It’s straight forward, forgiving and an absolute poster card.

Good course but burnt our now

This is a wonderful layout. I could not understand how burnt out it was. Since it was the entire course, I assume it was just a lack of rain and watering.

Golfing At The Equinox In Vermont Is Divine!

My son and I joined up with two gentlemen from Vermont on the first tee at the Golf Course at Equinox in Manchester, Vermont. What a joy! Two gentleman and me (59 years old) and my 23 year old son. We teed off and had a great time, golfing, enjoying the beautiful mountainous scenery and this lovely golf course. Even though the course was crowded, my party of 4 never once waited for a group in front of us to clear. I am not saying that this was or is normal but for us , our experience golfing, talking and enjoying a wonderful golf course was PERFECT. The only two things not perfect were not the fault of The Equinox - the weather, 90 degrees and humid and the fact that because of Covid-19 we could not enjoy the clubhouse or the restaurant at The Equinox , which I will hope to try the next time we go there (and we will go back , fo’ sure!) Thank You Equinox and Thank You to All of the Staff and People at The Equinox Golf Club in Manchester, Vermont! Happy Golfing, Louis L. , Plattsburgh, NY

Played course yesterday which is in great shape. Big problem is sand traps in poor shape. Complained to pro who stated parent company will NOT spend the money to upgrade/maintain. At $95 to play not an acceptable answer.
