Nice course but bunkers need better drainage & work

Very nice course- bunkers need help though - shouldn’t have stones the size of quarters in a bunker & #18 needs total redo

Ok- but not as expected

The Equinox, heard a lot about it and when we came up to Manchester for my daughters wedding, This was a good opportunity to play it. An OK public course, in fairly good condition, but the bunkers??? Totally unacceptable. I thought maybe they were under construction, but from the other reviews, I guess not. Put some sand or maybe crushed marble (in keeping with Manchester, similar to Augusta) in the bunkers! The shot over the street is funky, wonder how many cars have been hit since there is no warning either on the course or the street! No food at the clubhouse. Probably a one and done. Have to figure out how to play the original “private” Ekwinok or nearby Dorest.

Worth the Trip

Spectacular views from all over the course. Great shape greens and fairways. Sand Traps need some work. Teed off at 240 played with a guy 9 holes then the back alone. Caught a group last 2 holes but still was done by 6pm. You will pay 25 for a cart if you book thru GolfNow. But 55 total to play that course was worth the 3 hr drive home. 7th hole was interesting. Par 5 2nd shot you have to hit over the street that you can’t see. Pretty cool hole.

Resort course..thinking temperatures approaching 90s had most players teeing off in morning. The afternoon made the course look like our own private course.

Fun layout

Really liked the course, fairways, tees and greens in great shape, some of the bunkers were a little rough but looked to be from recent heavy rains, hopefully fixed up soon. Pace of play was 4:40, but it was a hot humid day so may have accounted for that. I would definitely play again next time in the area.

Mr. Sandmaster

Beautiful course with some breathtaking views.
It’s unfortunate that some iof the bunkers are completely unplayable An upscale resort should have excellent bunkers!

This course is well below par

Staff was not welcoming. We asked the starter for help because it was our first time playing this course. He pointed to the first tee box. Failing to give us the information on how the flag positions were marked. I have never seen sand traps in worse condition. You couldn’t walk in them without falling because of the rocks and lack of sand.. there was no apparent attempt to repair the traps. There was no rain fall in the 4 previous days. I tried to talk to someone about , but no one was available to hear our Concerns.

Overall this was not worth $80 never mind the $170 we paid. I would never recommend or play this course again.

Fire the starter

The round was going well. 1:40 for the front nine and then the starter decides to stick a 5-some ahead of us on the 10th tee. When I went into the pro shop to ask for an explanation the person told me that the group had left after playing 9 in the morning and came back to finish their round. What?!!! Tell me. Is this acceptable? We were treated as persona non grata from the start and until that happened I was willing to let things slide. GolfPass patrons beware: this golf club is anything but inviting, cordial, and professional. Shame. It is a nice layout, in good shape.

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 $.

Great course

Even better with nobody on it. Temperatures approaching 90 must have sent others to morning tee times. Afternoon we had the couse almost to ourselves.

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.
