Par & Yardage: Fox Hopyard GC will be set up to play at a total of 6,912 yards and a par of 71.

Fox Hopyard was designed by Roger Rulewich after its sister course, Crumpin-Fox Golf Course, in Bernardston, Mass. Rulewich said wanted to construct a course that gave golfers the feel of playing through “the mountains of Vermont, and the lowlands of Kiawah,” all in one round. The semi-private course, that also hosted the 2003 Connecticut Women's Open, perennially makes lists of top New England courses open to the public.
