Situated above the town of Greensboro, this Vermont Golf Club is a “hidden gem” and one of the oldest and most inviting golf, tennis and social clubs in Vermont. The golf course is full of bumps and moguls. It is also completely devoid of sand traps. At Mountain View, the views are impressive and the overall feel is enchanting.
The Mountain View Country Club dates back to the late 1800s. Golf was first played in 1898 on a cow-pasture course laid out by club members. The trees have grown larger and the forests have tightened up the fairways, but little else has changed. Only minor rerouting has occurred. Though little actual evidence exists today, the cows remained active on the course until well into the 1960s.
The cows are gone, but the relaxed and endearing ambiance remains. The hilly 9-hole course is a picturesque, links style layout with a rating/slope from the middle tees of 67.9/112 for men and 71.5/116 for women. From the Blue Tees the course measures 2927 yards. The par 35 layout was featured in the July/August 2007 issue of Travel + Leisure Golf. The seven clay tennis courts are the best around and the vibrant social calendar make MVCC a ‘must’ for residents and visitors to Greensboro.
