One of two Geoff Cornish-designed 18-hole layouts at The Quechee Club, the Highland course underwent a major restoration by Brian Silva in 2012 following damage caused by Hurricane Irene.
There are two courses at Quechee, the Highland and the Lakeland, and we played both. They are both excellent good-value holiday courses and were in superb condition in beautiful surroundpds with sufficient challenge to keep competent golfers on their toes throughout. Our only minor criticism was that the course signage was often poor or non-existent making the layout not that easy to follow for first-time players. The Lakeland is probably fairer, less blind shots and more from an even lie, but the Highland is more exacting and exciting to play.
After a slow but interesting start, the Highland comes to life with the 220 yard par three 8th where your shot from a raised tee has to cross the fast flowing Ottauquechee River, and then throughout the back nine which is played over undulating terrain. Two fearsome par threes at 12 and 17 are the highlights of a testing finish with many good holes and stunning views over the surrounding densely wooded countryside and scenic distant hills.
