Crumpin-Fox Golf Club

The Crumpin-Fox Club, 7,007 yards with a par of 72, was carved out of the forest close to the Vermont line and is widely considered by the best players one of the most challenging tests of ability in the Northeast.

Many of the holes here are tree-lined with ample bunking and enough water to create a few jangled nerves as the round proceeds. Some of the greens are elevated, further complicating proper club selection, especially when the breeze kicks up.

Accomplished course architect Roger Rulewich took an original nine holes, reworked them, and added a new nine holes in 1990 to create what many consider one his best tracks.

The course winds over hill and dale and blends perfectly with the stunning natural landscape that is this section of New England, close by the Massachusetts-Vermont state border. The layout plays a little over 7,000 yards from the tips and has several of the best holes in the region.

The eighth is talked about far and wide, as it is certainly the most difficult par-five on the course. The hole starts from an elevated tee box and a lake plays a factor on the first, second and third shots, as it must be avoided and then cleared on any approach to a rather large green protected by bunkers. Make a five here, never mind a birdie, and you have done something special indeed.

The 11th hole, a modest 161-yard par-three, is one of the prettiest short holes you will find anywhere. The tee shot is across a waste area to a green that sits atop a plateau. Miss the putting surface and it’s a very tricky up and down.

The four sets of tees at Crumpin-Fox make it enjoyable for all who visit this wonderful course.
