This course sit in the middle of the Pioneer Valley on the eastern edge of the Berkshires at the foot of Vermont's Green Mountain. The course's interesting name was derived from Bernardston-based Crump Soda Company that was sold in 1853 to Eli Fox; thus becoming the Crumpin-Fox Soda Company. Each hole on the course has been cut through thick stands of trees and sits in isolation from every other. Streams meander through the grounds, and an old red barn and horse farm adjoin one hole on the front. No two consecutive holes run in the same direction. There's modestly uphill holes, dramatic downhill par 3's, par 4's both long and short, and a memorable collection of par 5's. The most memorable is #8, a 592, par 5, which starts from an elevated tee nestled deep in the forest. Dark woods impose themselves on the right, the fairway cants modestly to the left, and a massive lake runs entirely down the left side of the hole. The putting surface, the largest on the course, sits on the other side of the water. "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 9th "Best in State" course for 1995-96. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" rated it 57th under the 1996 category of "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." "GOLFWEEK" rated the course 92nd among "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1998 and 96th for 1999. The sister course is Fox Hollow Golf Club in Odessa Florida, which is just twenty miles north of Tampa. The Crumpin-Fox Golf Institute is located on the premises.
