It’s a hidden gem
The course measures 6,533 from the tips (71.1, 126 slope), 6,073 from the regular tees (69.1/122), 5,051 from the forward tees (64.2/112 for men; 69.8/114 for women).
A hole-by-hole guide follows, but it will be tough to pick a favorite. The challenging par-5 second, that heads up a hill, takes a right turn to a narrow strip of fairway only to head up another hill for the third shot? The drivable par-4 sixth? The risk-reward of the par-5 seventh? Or the long march of the par-4 eleventh? These are other questions are best answered by teeing it up for another round.
“Every hole is unique. Some golf courses you won’t remember one hole from the next.”
You remember the holes here. Vermont Business Magazine agrees, naming the BCC as the 2017 Best of Business Awards (BOB Awards) winner as Best Golf Course for Windham/Windsor Counties – and again in 2018 and 2019.
Since 2014, the first year we took BCC from a member owned club that was struggling financially to a privately held golf facility, we have made many noticeable improvements to the course and clubhouse. With a fresh look in the dining room, kitchen, and bar area. Irrigation, tree work, cart paths, enhanced gardens and much more, we feel as though we are on the upswing as to what we can offer you, your family and your guests in terms of your golf experience. The pro shop has been and will continue to make your experience as a pass holder a meaningful value. We have added family friendly tees, offered golf clinics for youth, and, brought in state and tristate competitions. As many of you know, new golf carts were leased last fall. The response and support we have received during the transition to single party ownership has been incredibly positive.
Throughout that time, we have kept our rates steady, even as the cost of business continues to rise. We have worked hard to bring in additional tournaments, outings and other events to help offset those costs.
We place a high value on our membership base and want to continue to offer you the things that make BCC special for you.
Ride at BCC on a GolfBoard
The GolfBoard is controlled using an ergonomically designed thumb throttle which allows the user to smoothly accelerate and decelerate, and power the GolfBoard on and off. The throttle mechanism also features an intelligent LED meter, providing details of when the GolfBoard battery needs to be recharged. It is specially designed to allow for intuitive, gentle, and smooth acceleration and braking. Hi/Low, and Fwd/Reverse switches are mounted on the Stability Bar for easy access.
In 1899, local residents formed the Wantastiquet Golf Club and established a six hole course near the present site. In December, 1913, Tom McNamara, a professional golfer from Boston, toured the site of the current course and plotted a lay out for a nine hole course. The property then was owned by the Brattleboro Retreat. The Retreat was approached to insure that favorable long term lease arrangements could be made. Because of the determination and enthusiasm of the founders, the process did not take long. On February 21, 1914, fourteen local business men incorporated the “Brattleboro Country Club,” apparently changing the name from the “Wantastiquet Golf Club”.
Three-time U.S. Open runner-up Tom MacNamara, designed the 2,754-yard nine-hole layout for the opening of the club on July 1, 1914.
The course as it exists today grew out of a 1930 do-over by Wayne Stiles, and a 2000 expansion and partial rerouting by Vermont native Steve Durkee. Eight classic Stiles’ holes remain (9-12, 15-18), with ten contemporary Durkee holes woven in (1-8, 13-14), with ample elevation, charming variety, and pleasing views at every turn.
Construction began in April of that year and the grand opening was held on July 1, 1914. Over 1,000 people visited the clubhouse and enjoyed the celebratory Japanese lawn party. In addition to the music and the golf, trap shooting (which has since been discontinued) was a highlight of the first day’s activities.The course measures 6,533 from the tips (71.1, 126 slope), 6,073 from the regular tees (69.1/122), 5,051 from the forward tees (64.2/112 for men; 69.8/114 for women).
