Named one of the top 100 golf resorts by Golf Magazine, the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed golf course at Woodstock Inn & Resort is an 18-hole masterpiece of terrain features that excite the most seasoned player. Surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views of the Kedron Valley, our full-service golf club also features a pro shop, practice range, putting green, private lessons, and The Fairway Grill restaurant and bar.
Founded in 1895, Woodstock Country Club is the oldest golf course in Vermont. The history of golf in Woodstock is steep, and the story on how it was founded and how it evolved is unique in many ways. Today, golf is thriving in our hills, and the course is playing better than it ever has and continues to get recognized as a top resort course.
1895 - Golf is Introduced to Woodstock
Dr. Francis B Harrington was visiting from Boston, MA in early October for a two week stay with his golf clubs and balls to find out there was not a golf course in site. He aroused the interest of general manager Arthur Wilder and the two headed out to the open crown of Mount Peg where Dr. Harrington demonstrated his golf techniques. There was an immediate interest and the town of Woodstock has enjoyed golf ever since.
1896 - Woodstock Country Club Opens
On April 26, Woodstock Country Club opened its greens on a hillside cow pasture located above the present golf course. The inaugural season was celebrated four months later with the first 9-hole tournament on the newly minted links for club members.
1906 - A Change of Venue
With the Woodstock golf course quickly growing in popularity, club professional and forefather of golf course design William Henry Tucker was hired to configure an entirely new layout that opened in July 1906. The new course was moved to the Kedron Valley, just below Mt. Peg, where it remains today.
1925 - Woodstock Country Club’s Expansion
Due to increases in membership, golf architect Wayne Stiles, of Boston, Massachusetts, was hired to rearrange Woodstock’s links and create a new 18-hole layout, setting the foundation for today’s modern style of golfing. By the end of his career, the relatively unknown landscape architect was credited for designing and consulting on over 145 golf courses throughout his life.
1950 - Golf Boom
The golf boom of the early 1950s put the club in a good financial situation. In 1954 the woman organized their own association and started planning ladies’ day and played in tournaments. Their excellent management of social affairs of the club included four major dinner and dance events each year, providing extra funds to paint the clubhouse and remodel the ballroom.
1963 - Laurance Rockefeller’s Influence on the Course
Two years after Laurance Rockefeller purchased Woodstock Inn & Resort in 1961. Mr. Rockefeller hired renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. who brought his signature, yet complex designs to Woodstock’s greens. Because the course’s acreage was too small for a full-length design, Jones compensated by utilizing the tall banks and twisted paths of Kedron Brook to add technical challenges.
2012 - Keegan Bradley Hosts Charity Golf Tournament
After Tropical Storm Irene devastated much of Vermont with flooding, Woodstock native and PGA Tour champion Keegan Bradley hosted a golf tournament at the Woodstock Country Club to help raise funds to assist the state in recovery. The Keegan Bradley Charity Golf Classic is now an annual Woodstock tournament that benefits the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation in its support of the Vermont Cancer Center and Vermont Children's Hospital to fund life saving research for children battling cancer.
The Clubhouse at Woodstock Country Club is a place to gather before or after a round of golf, with the capacity to host private functions, banquets, and weddings.

Keegan Bradley Bio
Keegan Bradley is a Woodstock, Vermont native who has risen as a top player on the PGA Tour. Woodstock Country Club is Keegan’s home town course where he honed his game daily by jumping off his school bus with clubs in hand. Of course, his buddies were amused, but little did they know what this dedication would amount to.
Keegan makes it a point to revisit his old stomping ground; “I love the Woodstock Country Club and have such fond memories of the place. I get back every year and enjoy teeing it up and sharing stories with friends and family.”
Keegan proclaims, “if every golf course treated juniors the way Woodstock Country Club did, there would be a lot more kids playing golf today!”
The Annual Keegan Bradley Charity Golf Classic is held at the Woodstock Inn & Resort. Proceeds from the event benefited the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation in its support of theVermont Cancer Center and Vermont Children's Hospital to fund life saving research for children battling cancer.
