Synopsis: This article is about the Brattleboro Country Club and the history that shaped the club into what we see today.
Neatly tucked away in the south eastern corner of Vermont is the Brattleboro Country Club, a superb nine hole test of any golfer’s shot making ability. Rich in tradition, run by an extremely energetic staff and supported by a devoted core of members, this challenging layout eagerly awaits new visitors.
“It’s the people that make the club special,” head pro Jim Hart contended. “Everyone here is so friendly. We have a very active membership, and a lot of them have been here for many, many years. This is a great place to be.”
Brattleboro officially opened in 1914, but the initiative to build the golf course began much earlier. The Wantastiquet Golf Club, a six-hole course, was opened in Brattleboro in 1899. In the early 1900s, the interest in a new invention, the automobile, diverted everyone’s attention away from golf and led to the closing of the course.
