A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for...hands down the tastiest food I've ever had in my entire life. If you have to eat bark off the trees for the rest of your time in Shelburne, it's still worth it to eat here once!

Fairly expensive course ($60 for 18 holes plus cart); it ranges from 5200 yards on short tees to 7100 yards on far tees. It plays long in all cases (2-3 hours).
The blue grass fairways and the fescue roughs and bent grass greens are kept in good condition. There are some water tracks on the course but they really do not pose a hazard.
The bunkers and sand traps however are strategically placed to snag any balls that are not well placed onto the fairway. Two fairways are very slanted which tend to kick the ball to the right; most greens are not flat but undulate and some are tiered.
Pro shop, snack bar and restaurant are at the clubhouse area by the parking lot. The local pro will give you good tips on how to play each hole and try to talk you into taking a lesson or two. (Not that I couldn't use some pointers but I don't take my golf that seriously).
The driving range and chipping are will cost you about $5 each.

Favorite thing: Although the latitude of Shelburne would make you think cold, cold, cold, the proximity of Lake Champlain tends to moderate the weather. The lake takes longer to warm up so it keeps the nearby towns a little cooler in summer and it is slower to cool off so it keeps those same places a little warmer in winter.
That doesn't mean that it is balmy in Shelburne in January. There is plenty of snow and ice to go around. It is just that there seem to be a few warmer days interspersed among the cold ones depending on which way the wind blows.

Spring takes its time in arriving and lingers well into May some years. Winds blowing in from the west can pick up moisture from the lake and dump into on the land to the east. But eventually the rain stops and the flowers bloom and the air is fresh and clean.

When summer arrives it doesn't take long to really heat up. Thank goodness that the lakefront is there with the beach and lake activities to help cool down.

The arrival of Fall is usually a little later than in the Adirondacks... about mid-October. Then the leaves rapidly turn colors as the cool nights leach the green chlorophyl from the leaves.
Some years, Fall can skip right into winter by Thanksgiving.
