A beautiful, 6,300-yard links golf course with many holes fronting on the Third Branch of the White River.
Montague’s front nine is lined by maple and pine trees. The back nine is more of an open “links-style”, with rolling fairways and sloping land lined with tall heather grasses. (Curated content from www.montaguegolf.com)
There is no finer place to enjoy the game than Green Mountain National Golf Course. What separates us from others are our unique and challenging design features. Carved out of the majestic Green Mountains, our course offers solitude and a “private” golf experience that will challenge players of all abilities. Although located in the mountains, you need not be a Sherpa to play Green Mountain National. Gently sloping fairways that feature generous landing areas, distinctive changes in elevation and undulating greens provide natural beauty. (Curated content from gmngc.com)
Our par-72 Championship course lies amongst woods, farm and pasture land, and rolling hills. While Neshobe GC affords beautiful mountain views in all directions, it is not a typical “mountain course”, having no severe up- or down-hill lies or blind shots. Clearly, it is a tribute to our Course Superintendent and his expert staff that players rave about the conditions, featuring 18 distinctive holes which provide a variety of challenges to all facets of the game.

Branbury is located on the eastern shore of Lake Dunmore at the base of Mt. Moosalamoo. The Green Mountain National Forest is its neighbor to the east. Historically, the 69-acre park operated as a farm at the turn of the century, then as a guest house, summer boy's camp and private beach and picnic area. In 1945, it became Branbury (Brandon-Salisbury) State Park. The 1000 foot natural sandy beach, clean, clear Lake Dunmore, and the large open grassy areas make the area very popular for swimming, sunning, or picnicking. (Curated content from vtstateparks.com)
