One of the most acclaimed architects of the modern era, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. imbued the golf course at Sugarbush Resort with a natural feel, allowing the course to unfold with the subtle beauty that pervades this area of upper New England. The course, a 6,464-yard, par-72 layout, opened in 1961, and rolls along the hilltops of the Mad River Valley in Vermont.
The course at Sugarbush Resort is considered challenging yet fair. A perfect example of this balance is the layout’s second hole, a 510-yard par-five from the tips. Big hitters can blast driver and then go for the green in two shot. But the safer, and perhaps wise, play may be a steady three shots to find the green.
Located in the Green Mountains, Sugarbush Resort and Golf Course provides an ideal setting for an all-inclusive sporting getaway. The Warren, Vt. resort is a spring, summer and autumn destination. That means world-class fly fishing, hiking and biking trails, and of course the fabulous Trent Jones, Sr. golf course.
Visitors can choose to stay at several locations. The 110-room Clay Brook Hotel and Residences offers luxury slopeside accommodations that range from single rooms to multiple-bedroom suites with full kitchens. A charming 42-room Sugarbush Inn, located just off the hill, has been called a quintessential New England inn.
