July 4th Member Social & Ron Philo’s 108 on 108:
July 4th marks the day Ron Philo walks 108 holes of golf to raise money for the Folds of Honor Foundation, finishing his round just in time to join the annual Member Social and enjoy the fireworks. This year the fireworks were delayed, but there was still some fireworks on the golf course when the team of Jordan Plummer, Jozlyn Plummer, Oliver Twombly, James Cornell – scored 27 points taking home the top spot, closely followed by Kerry Sedutto, Laura Jones, Kevin Komer, Chris Altadonna – 26 Points – Match of cards to determine.
CTH #2: Oliver Twombly
CTH #4: Jim Hodge
CTH #8 Paul Thabault

Copley Hospital Scramble:
We are thrilled to have the Copley Hospital Fundraising Scramble back at Stowe where it began. The event originated as a memorial to Sepp Ruschp, longtime Mountain Manager at Stowe and instrumental in the construction of Stowe CC. This year, 112 golfers took to the links to support the Hospital and a huge thank you needs to go out to Stowe CC’s Polly Manosh who personally takes up the cause and helps bring out the golfers.
