Welcome to Ralph Myhre

The Ralph Myhre Golf Course is an 18-hole public course owned and operated by Middlebury College. The course is open for play from April through November 1, weather permitting. Delayed openings due to frost are common early and late in the Vermont golfing season.

There is a golf shop featuring retail clothing and hard goods as well as services such as club repair, club and golf cart rentals.  Other facilities include a driving range, practice putting green, practice sand bunker, and practice chipping area.

The Ralph Myhre Golf Course is also home to Above Par, a casual restaurant and bar with spectacular views and amazing food.  Above Par also offers beverage cart service on busy days.  Please visit our restaurant page to learn more.

We offer forward tee markers to welcome and accommodate players of all skill levels. The PGA family tees are designed to help all golfers reach greens in regulation, which allows for a more enjoyable round and improved pace of play.
