My husband and I have been golfing and staying here for years, the staff are super friendly, the owner Paul will always go out of his way to help wherever and whenever he can. The course is very picturesque and suitable for all golf handicaps.

We are glad that you enjoy your visits to Bluff Point Golf Resort. You are correct, the parkland style of the course lends it self to be open and playable so you won't loose a lot of golf balls, but the well bunkered sloped greens add the extra challenge for the seasoned golfer. We look forward to seeing you again... More

Bluff Point is one of America's oldest golf courses. It is very well maintained and, in addition, many of the holes, especially on the front 9, have wonderful lake and mountain scenery to view. The entire course has cart roads so that wet ground is a none issue. Maintenance is first rate. And, the resort also has numerous luxury cabins... More

As soon as the cottages\suites were opened we were down there again this year. Our suite was comfy and cozy as always. Yes the course was a bit wet, but in very good shape for this time of year. Had the chance to try a couple of the local eateries and they too were a success. Thanks to the staff... More

Yet another wonderful visit to our favourite spot to "golf & stay". Paul and his staff were, as always, obliging and welcoming. Always take time for a chat and make their guests feel at home. The course was in beautiful shape and the Fall colours were striking. Paul recommended an excellent spot for dinner and was kind enough to take... More

Coming to Bluff Point has become a semiannual event for my buddies and me. For $70 you get overnight accommodations in a nice but slightly rustic cabin, two rounds of golf with cart and additional rounds for $10! The course is a nice course along Lake Champlain. My only complaint is the tees are in poor shape and they don't... More

A beautiful golf course with an amazing view. The cabins are rustic and you need to drive into town for meals. There is a microwave in the room but you will need to bring your own dishes and utensils. There is a fire pit if you wish to bring marshmallows and hot dogs. After a day of golf, sit on... More

Bluff Point was all I expected and more great deals on golfing packages. With the cabins right on the course you can relax on your deck and watch other people golf, while looking at the beautiful scenery..Highly recomend if you are a golfer.. A great little steak & seafood place just down the road it was excellent "Rusty Anchor"
