    Ekwanok Country Club Golf Course Review




    The Ekwanok Country Club prides itself with the fact that it was the first 18 hole golf course in the United States who could compete with some of the best in the United Kingdom, the country who spawned the beautiful game of golf. The Ekwanok has a long and rich history, as it was first opened way back in 1900 in Manchester, Vermont, featuring 6566 yard of golf from its longest tees for a 70 par. The Ekwanok Country Club was initially founded in 1899 and it was designed by architect Walter J Travis; in 2007 it suffered a major restoration project, with the help of architect Bruce Hepner working with Renaissance Golf Design. The new team managed to bring back to life some of the golf courses initial character, especially by removing some of the trees and by restoring the original design of the fairway bunkers, i.e. their initial rugged appearance, together with promoting the native grass areas. Also, greens were restored to their initial dimensions and some of the most interesting holes were recaptured in the process. The Ekwanok Country Club is a private facility available for members and their guests only and its located sixty miles west of Concorde.

    In its long and fortuitous history, the club hosted a number of major golf events, due to its very ingenious routing which has endured over the last century, as the routing was designed with the help of Walter Traviss assistant, John Duncan. John was a highly imaginative Scotsman and its partly responsible for the golf courses liberal provision of bunkers, its beautifully contoured greens and the clever routing. Some say that the 595 yard par five 7th hole is the number one in all of New England, being a true three shooter sort to speak, even for todays enhanced standards. If you want to experience a pure and simple golfing experience while in Vermont, the Ekwanok Country Club is very easy to recommend.
