Detailed description

White River Golf Club, is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Rochester, Vermont.

The course first opened in 1972. The course was redesigned by Mother nature and Pete McGowan in 2011 / 2012.

The course is laid out along the White River with beautiful Green Mountain vistas from all holes on the course.

The course was redesigned and rebuilt after the damages incurred by Tropical Storm Irene in August of 2011. The 9-hole course has been lengthened to 2,936 yards and plays to a Par 36 from the back tees. Four separate tee placements have been added to each hole with the forward tees playing as a Par 3

The course owner states that Irene’s flood gave him the opportunity to implement improvements that he had always wanted to do, but otherwise would never have attempted. That redesign included four new greens, 19 new tees, seven of the nine fairways, and three completely new holes including back-to-back Par 5s thereby making the course more challenging.

Many Golfers comment that White River Golf Club is the best walking course they’ve ever played.

The redesign was intended to appeal to many market segments and skill levels. It is an ideal walking course for seniors and beginners. Yet with its several tee placements and varying yardages, it offers sufficient levels of challenges for golfers of every handicap.
