Home of the famous VERMONSTER, hole #14…  Since 1927, the course has long been a local’s favorite and the traveler’s “must play”.  Why the enormous demand to play a round on this legendary course?  A golf course that is about 1000 yards shorter than a modern course?  It could be because of its unique charm that is complimented by breathtaking views of Camel’s Hump and the Green Mountains.  Maybe it is because course conditions are always perfect and the pace is enjoyable.  More importantly, it is probably because of the layout of the course itself, measuring 5,725 yards from the back tees, it presents a challenge to the low handicapper, who often feel they will bring Williston to its knees.  The reverse usually occurs. On the flip side, high handicappers can play a round that allows them to score well. All golfers have a great experience and enjoy a legendary day!

Built in and around the former Talcott family farm in a parkland setting, Williston has a pleasant variety of flat and undulating holes.  A complete redesign in the late 1960’s by Ben Murray reshaped and rerouted the course.  An aggressive tree planting program at that time created fairways, that today, are lined with majestic maples, pines and willows.  Many golfers say it reminds them of an upscale suburban country club!
