Hermitage Golf Club
The Hermitage Golf Club prides itself on our classic and well manicured par 72 layout. Acclaimed architect Desmond Muirhead designed the facility in 1972, giving golfers a dramatic experience of natural rolling terrain where expansive views of the Green Mountains are revealed on nearly every hole. The course is completely natural and is routed through many indigenous areas spanning the property.
Apart from the breathtaking scenery lies target landing areas, strategic bunkering and small undulating greens that characterize the challenges of this hidden gem. New England weather conditions are always present, and the varying elements of the course create a new experience every time you play.
Hours Daily 7am to 6pm with tee times from 7:30am. Weekends and holidays are reserved for Hermitage Club members.
Cost Complimentary for Hermitage Club members. Non-member rates start at $35 — see our rate sheet for full details.

Mark Aebli, PGA
Assistant Golf Professional
Mark returns to us for his seventh season at The Hermitage Golf Club. He grew up in Central Texas and started playing the game of golf at the age of 13 under the supervision of legendary instructor Harvey Penick at Austin Country Club. Mark is a graduate of UT Austin with a degree in American History. Mark’s playing career has spanned the globe including victories at The Philippine Open, Hong Kong Open, Republic of China Open and Chile Open. These tournament victories are impressive given the fact that the names of Greg Norman, Seve Ballesteros, Carlos Franco and Angel Cabrera were all in the final pairings on Sunday with him. Mark’s true passion since coming on property has been his ability to properly communicate with his students to have them achieve their personal golf goals. Mark has been recognized by Golf Digest as Vermont’s best teacher
in 2004 and 2011.

TrackMan is a small piece of equipment that can help create huge improvements for players. The latest evolution of the product, TrackMan 4, features a dual-radar technology representing a significant milestone in the evolution of golf instruction, coaching, fitting and entertainment.
One radar system tracks everything the club does before, during and after impact, such as club path, face angle, swing direction and spin loft. The second system tracks the full flight of the ball, illustrating launch angle, spin rate and curvature.
“We are very fortunate to have a device like this on property and be able to impart to our students the data that TrackMan provides,” Drew Anderson, Head Golf Professional said. “TrackMan is currently being used by some of the top professionals in our sport, including Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy. What better way to lower your scores than have the same access to what the best players in the world are currently using?”
