Tower cc

The course is going through some renovations which is very inconvenient but understandable. They did their best to accommodate.

No signage

Nice course, very well maintained. For some unknown reason there are no signs on the tee boxes. No hole #, no distance per tee, nothing. When you complete a hole and try to find your way to next hole, no signs to direct you and, when you stumble on a tee area, you have no idea if you are on the correct tee.. lots of wandering around. Also, VERY few yardage markers on the fairways. Not sure why they operate their course this way but as a first time player I found it very frustrating. PUT SOME SIGNAGE AND MARKERS ON TJE COURSE!!

Awesome views

Great course in wonderful shape. Very well maintained, greens were immaculate! A little pricey but it is supply and demand, not a whole lot around.

Excellent Course

This is a ver nice course with wonderful views. The course is quite good shape. It’s obvious that the grounds crew care about their work. The greens were fast and a challenge. The layout is straightforward and fun. This course is definitely worth playing.

Enjoyable place to play

Course in great condition. Friendly folks and friendly course layout. Good for a high handicapper like myself, forgiving off the tee. But the greens can get fast and there are some nice elevation changes, so there are some challenges. Overall, really good time. Free warm up balls close to the first tee, good putting warm up surface. Nice staff.

Strange shot values

I know this course gets a very high rating because many of the visuals Are outstanding but from a golf point of view, the shot values leave a lot to be desired. This mainly has to do with the very difficult topography the architect had to work with on the slopes of Spruce Mountain. I’ve played the mountain course about seven or eight times now, and I simply cannot recommend it as a golfer who is really into golf course architecture and has played many of the classic golf courses in the US and around the world. If you fall into this category, be. prepared to be disappointed. Sadly, repeated play only deepens this impression.

Hot weather
Walked

A disappointing start, as the pro shop was out of scorecards (they don't have a photocopier?). Luckily, the starter had one for us, but it didn't have a map of the course to help us find our way around our first time here. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Probably the best conditioned course we have ever played, but we're not accustomed to playing $100 courses. A couple of the greens had some thin spots, but nothing major. Irrigated fairways were lush and weed free. Just wish the members were more conscientious about replacing divots. Hardly a flat spot on this mountain course, including the putting surfaces. A difficult course for older folks like us to walk on a hot day, with all the ups and downs, but still quite playable. Not too many water hazards, and the bunkers appeared to all be in good shape. A good choice, if you can afford it.

Fast course with good players, but pricey

This was the option in Stowe for me since I wasn't paying $250 for a monday morning round at the "Mountain Course".

We finished 18 in 3 hours, which is a great pace. The condition of the course was good and the course was peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. Loved playing in the mountains and had a nice round. I payed $100 (with cart) for the round, which is too much for what it was. I'd compare it to a $75 course in my area (massachusetts).

Overall a pleasant course during a vacation.

Great time.

Enjoyed a complimentary round unsuspectingly one day. Myself and two young boys. Had a blast. No waiting, wasn't pushed, about as pleasant as a round could be when you hit the ball the way I do. Fairways are super soft and about perfect. Rough was great, on every hole. Greens were big and fast, held shots that weren't skulled. Beautiful scenery as expected.

If you’re a walker, get ready to climb. Great layout and challenge for those that enjoy a thoughtful approach to each shot.

Fair at Best, Highly Overpriced!

Nice to OK course, I got a Hot Deal at $36, less $20 promo code. At $36.00 the price is fair, anything more than overpriced. Course conditions are OK, not great, but not poor. Layout OK at best, Staff OK.
Probably would not play this course again unless less than $30. I can't believe they have members.
