2014 was a great year for Stowe Country Club!


The course improvements brought a level of conditioning never before witnessed at SCC. Thank you Kevin Komer and Scott Rossi for the leadership and hard work that led to these improvements.

The face lift in the golf shop and the enhanced product mix received many of positive comments from  members and guests.  Some wonderful products remain so come in for the End Of Season Sale with savings of up to 50% throughout the golf shop. 

REMEMBER, if you have golf shop credit, it expires on 10/19/2014 and can be used on all sale items.

The Stowe Golf team:  Six new golf professionals (Scottie Nield, Ray Geffre, Topher Harlow, Sue Horton, Ross Pawlak, & Mike Taylor) brought a new focus on customer service and member relations. The events were as popular as ever and participation increased over last year.

Stowe Mountain Club continues to enjoy record growth.  With the reintroduction of the Gold Membership the Club has a program to fit golfers and skiers alike.  The Gold Program offers members an opportunity to access all the Club’s Summer benefits and more
  • 36 holes of golf at The Stowe Mountain Club and Stowe Country Club

For more information stop by the Stowe Mountain Club or call Bridgette Kennedy at 802.760.4616.

Looking forward: 

Stowe Country Club continues to offer you premier resort golf at a tremendous value. You will often hear us mention the camaraderieconvenience, and improved conditions that come with our memberships. Another strategy we are focusing on ispricing stability; because we want all of you to have a good sense of what your membership will cost from year to year.   The Stowe Mountain Resort Management Team is committed to providing our local and seasonal residents with golf programs and products that reflect value and promote the enjoyment of this wonderful community.  This is a shared goal  – our costs are increasing; in maintaining the golf course at the level we did this year expenses grew by nearly $100,000. This is the same amount as the dues of 50 members. You probably noticed that we did not grow by 50 members to cover those costs.  Your help is asked for in promoting memberships to your friends. Using the facility at every opportunity, be it dining in Kirkwoods, bringing guests to play, or purchasing equipment, supplies and apparel in the golf shop all demonstrate your commitment to making this your facility and helping cover the cost of operating.

We are happy to communicate our commitment to value and price stability by maintaining the 2014 rates for the 2015 season.*

Membership   Returning Member    Discount^
Family  $3,850$3,080
Single (35-64) $2,155$1,724
Senior (65 & Over) $1,945$1,556
Young Adult (23-34) $1,050$840
Junior (10-23) $420$336

As we commit to value and price stability, we ask the same from you.  Your commitment is critical to our ability to plan and budget for the coming season.  This request  comes in the form or timing relative to the discount conveyed to returning members.  So act quickly to ensure the best rate.

^Returning Members can join for 2015 by December 1st and receive a 20% discount

*You may also notice the consolidation of the Spouse Membership into the Family Membership.  Members who join in the family category have children and grandchildren up to age 23 included in their membership privileges.

Please be aware that all membership rates are plus VT Sales Tax and the returning member discount is now date sensitive; you have until December 1st to save the 20%.

The only additional change is an increase in the cart upgrade to $300 as well as an increase on the daily cart rental if you choose not to upgrade for the season.

Thanks for a great season. The last day of golf operations is 10/19.  Members are permitted to play the course after 10/19, but limited services will be available.  If you see flags in the greens the golf course is still playable, when they leave we will ask that you respect the needs of the maintenance team to complete its end of season efforts to be properly prepared for 2015.

September Arrives

September Arrives

Fall is a special time of the year in Vermont. There is plenty of time left for some great golf so come out and enjoy the spectacular golf course conditions and the crisp autumn air.


Smugg's Jug


The final event of 2014 is one of our members' favorites. The Smugg's Jug is the annual Member-Member Tournament.

The deadline to sign up is Wednesday the 24th. Please help us provide an accurate count for the dinner so all who plan to attend are served appropriately. If you cannot attend dinner please indicate so in the Notes field; we had only about 1/3 of the participants attend the club champions dinner – but the food still was cooked and served and paid for by all who ate and all who didn’t.

Cocktails at 6:30 and dinner following at 7:00.

Teams will be competing in either the RUM RUNNER FLIGHT or the STOWE AWAY flight.  The overall winner of the Smuggs Jugg will be determined by the lowest gross score.  Each flight will be have prizes for gross and net scores.
