Course is bad

This course is really bad. It’s pretty clear the owners don’t know how to maintain a golf course.

Sad!

Played on Saturday 9/30/23 on one of the nicest fall days you could ask for. The only problem was the course was in absolutely horrible condition. Tee boxes were not mowed, or in some cases just dirt. Lots of damage and dead spots on the greens and they were shaggy and slow. Horrendous varmint damage on the fairways, skunks and/or crows digging for grubs with huge areas on many holes absolutely tore up. This has always been one of the most enjoyable, challenging courses for me to play and it’s only 45 minutes from my home. Sadly, I will not go back until they fix their issues. $65 to play in those conditions is just not acceptable to me!

Poor conditions

Played this course yesterday, 9/6/23. Conditions were terrible. There was no grass on many of the tee boxes. You were teeing off on dirt. Unacceptable. Fairways had a lot of bare spots. Shouldn't have any bare spots this year with all the rain we've gotten. The greens were almost impossible to putt on. Missed a lot of short putts, because the greens were so bad. Played this course many years ago, and it was a nice course to play. Will not be playing there again. Would drive the extra miles north to play Orleans or Newport. Much better courses.

Fun Challenge

If you plan on walking this course, be sure to bring lots of water with you. The course has lots of steep slopes to go up and down. It can feel more like a hike than a round of golf. But super fun. I'll be going back once I improve my game a bit more.

Fun, but tough

Hard course if you walk. It's a very steep course. But a lot of fun. I would not skip out on a cart rental next time.

Rough Conditions

When we played, the course was full of puddles and mud due to much recent rain. There was no drinking water on the course and bathrooms were not available. Also they did not provide information about the extra charge for the cart on Golf Now website. NOT worth the $$

This course charges additional cart fees

I prepaid online to Golfnow for 18 holes and cart for 3 players. Arrive at course and was told that the course doesn't honor the cart fee with Golfnow and I would have to pay additional cart fee of 69 dollars. Wasn't happy with the course for making the customer take the burden of the problem. Hoping that this doesn't happen to anyone else, that this review will help to prevent it from happening
Golfnow you need to make sure it doesn't happen to someone else. St. Johnsbury CC
I have always enjoyed your course, but I will not be back.

GolfNow Deal not as advertised

I used the GolfNow app to book 18 holes with a cart for 2 people at $44 each. We travelled over an hour to get to the course and upon arrival we were told by the staff that the GolfNow deal did not include cart. They made us pay an additional $46 to get a cart. The course was in terrible shape and the greens were very rough and had a lot of debris on them. I went back in the pro shop after our round and asked to be refunded for the cart fee because I felt they should honor the GolfNow deal as published. The owner said she would credit my card but I still have not seen the refund. It was a bad overall experience and I would probably not play the course again.

Fun day

Great challenging course! A lot of blind hits due to hitting uphill on many holes. Also had to pay for your cart fee; it was not included in the price you pay on the app.

St Johnsbury

We were greeted by one of the course partners and she was very pleasant. The course was in excellent shape. There were no areas that I would consider ground under repair. The greens were rolling nicely and the rough was challenging. The bar area is beautiful and there is an outside deck that gives you a nice view of the 9 th and 18 th greens.

Solid but Spendy

Finally got around to playing St J. Nice course, certainly would help knowing the course as there are many holes which are blind and/or target golf so knowing the distances and where NOT to hit it is key. Tee boxes were decent even for the women for my wife, greens were good. Club house girl was a touch on the cranky side for a course charging $70 per round with VT tax. Short staffed in the pub as well.

You get what you pay for, and more.

St. J only lists hot deals, so prices are incredible. Low enough to almost pay for my gas, at least.
Old style hill layout, lots of up and down hill, lots of blind shots. Nice overall design, variety. No two holes alike.
Cart paths mostly gravel, and quite rough. Some tee boxes a bit sketchy. Sand variable, but fairways quite nice and greens rolled true.
Leave your new pro v's home and have fun. You will use all your clubs and learn some valuable lessons about your golf skills.

Challenging round in beautiful setting.

This course is challenging due to some narrow fairways and tough to read greens. The layout is nicely done and takes advantage of the hills and natural beauty.

rough,rough, rough

I've always enjoyed playing this mountain track. I had'nt played here in 2 years and now the tee boxes are in ridiculous shape and the cart paths are appropriate for mountain goats. The rough is higher than I've remembered and with all the blind shots, lots of lost balls. Sayonara St. J
