Club History

Founded in 1924, the Burlington Country Club is the oldest golf course in Chittenden County.

In the early 1920's a group of members of the Waubanakee Golf Club formed the Burlington Country Club and purchased 150 acres from the Fairholt Estate for the course location. They hired the most famous golf architect of the day, Donald J. Ross, whose previous commissions included Pinehurst and Southern Pines. His original design, with the prospectus and bond offering, hangs in the clubhouse. The golf course underwent an extensive restoration under the careful guidance of the renowned golf architect Dr. Michael Hurdzan in 1998, who managed the restoration to maintain and preserve the character of the original Donald J. Ross design. In 2014 the club celebrated its 90th season of offering the highest level of golfing experience in northern New England.
