The History of Honey Pond


On a snowy Vermont winter day in 1997, Gary Kanew and Dan Gaydos

took a snowmobile up to a hilltop overlooking a snow filled hay field.

Inspired by the beauty and potential of the natural setting 

they conceived the original concept and course design.

From this simple pencil sketch seen below

the Honey Pond Golf Course came to life.

In 1998, ground was broken as a hay field was transformed

into 2 Greens surrounded by 10 Tees.

This is represented below by the first scorecard.

In the summer of 2000 we built a 3rd Green

which has gained a reputation worthy of the designation "Diabolical".

We also added a number of new tees creating a triangulated configuration.


Continuing the evolution of the course over the last 20 years,

Gary Kanew and course Superintendent Rich Miller have teamed up

  to create several distinctive and intriguing                                

which have transformed Honey Pond

into an entertaining and challenging 18 hole USGA Rated Course

with a totally unique design and routing.
