If you love golf and stunning scenery, we have the perfect place for you: Fox Run Golf Club, located in Ludlow, Vermont, that incorporates the best of the natural beauty from the Green Mountains and the Okemo Valley, attracting visitors from all over New England and beyond.

Each of the 18 holes has difficult, natural elements that highlight the breathtaking mountainside terrain. The greens are undulating and fast, putting all golfers’ skills, talent, ability, and competence to the test. Fox Run’s greens, tees, and fairways are all bent grass, and there are multiple tee areas. Fox Run also has a 9,200-square-foot clubhouse with locker rooms and a well-stocked pro shop stocked with fashionable and functional apparel as well as the most recent cutting-edge equipment.

For beginners and seasoned golfers looking to improve their game, Fox Run has the best training facility in the region. Their pro, Mark Senecal, leads small teaching classes and clinics, as well as providing quality individual instruction. A four-hole practice course allows new golfers and families to get a feel for the game by playing shorter holes, while also allowing other players to work on various skills.

The driving range is one of the most scenic and well-kept in New England. It is 6 acres in size and offers golfers the opportunity to practice on grass tees or mats. They have a putting green, a pitching area, and several manicured practice bunkers in their chipping area. During the winter and inclement weather, they have an indoor golf simulator and an indoor practice putting green where participants can virtually play more than 20 courses. Golfers can compete with their friends on some of the best courses in the world (Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Troon, Harbour Town, Bay Hill, Torrey Pines, and others). The Golf Simulator is an excellent tool for practicing or playing golf. Stroke, skins, or match play for four teams of up to four players each. Bocce courts, horseshoe pits, and cornhole toss are all part of their new Field of Games.

During the winter, visitors can also visit the Fox Run Nordic Center, which has 7 kilometers of well-marked and manicured Nordic Track Trails and skating lanes that wind along the Black River. Snowmobiling and snowshoeing are also available at Fox Run.

Businessman Troy Caruso bought the resort in April 2021 and immediately began improving the facilities, from new GPS-tracked golf carts to a total renovation of the restaurant Calcuttas, which includes a bar, full-service restaurant, and a patio. After a round of golf, golfers can relax with a glass of wine, live music, and a delicious meal. On the patio, guests can enjoy the firepits and take in the amazing views of the golf course and Okemo Ski Mountains.
