Vermont National is in south Burlington, about 10 minutes from the airport. It's a Nicklaus design around and through a housing development on rolling former farmland with views of Lake Champlain. It's home to the University of Vermont, and plays from 7,035 yards, down to 5,037 yard, and at the moment is a more open links style course until the trees planted grow in. It seems overpriced for the area, maybe not for a Nicklaus course, but at any rate it's a well conditioned and interesting layout with the housing infringing a bit visually on the back side. The front nine is a little pedestrian, while the back gets into some holes with character, tree lined fairways, elevated tees, and hilly.
