Welcome to Event-Net

What is Event-Net?

Stowe Country Club will be implementing a new on line registration system for member events using our tournament software - Event-Net.  Below you will find directions of how to access the system and how to register for events.  If you are having difficulty we can walk you through it in the golf shop. If that doesn’t work we will sign you up the old-fashioned-way and lower you're your handicap by 3, just kidding.

Click
HERE to go to the event registration website. We will be sending out reminders, but it is a good idea to save that page in your favorites.

Sign in:
User name:  FIRST INTIAL LAST NAME (example dlehmann)
Password: stowe12

This will take to a welcome screen where you can change your password and update your personal information. Please take a few seconds to fill in each field; it will help us with possible prizes in the future. Once you are done click on the "Save Changes" button.

Now that you're in you will see a list of tournaments that are currently open for registration. You can click on the name of the event to register. For event details like starting times, format, or other information click on the [Details] next to each event or in the top right of each event's page.


We are currently uploading all of the events for the season, so if you do not see an event on the list yet it will be there soon. 

As our membership grows our events get more and more popular and we struggle with giving accurate counts to the restaurant for the food. It was not uncommon for a member social to double in size the day before the event and while we do not want to discourage participation, it's critical to putting on a successful event. Event deadlines are 4 days before the event.

To register for an event click on the event name

For Member-Member events, choose your partner(s) from the drop down menu or in the case of Member-Guests, you will type in the name of guests.  Your partners do not need to register separately; In fact, once you or they have registered both names are removed from the list.

There will be a "Notes/ Pairing Request:" field for requesting tee times, pairing, etc. and while we cannot guarantee all requests are fulfilled, we will do everything to meet requests.

To see who has registered for a particular event click on "View" to the far right of the event

You will see all the the events you have registered at the bottom of the EVENTS PAGE. To remove your name from an event click on the name of the event and click REMOVE.

You can update your profile at anytime at  the bottom of the EVENTS PAGE click on “[Update My User Profile]”.

That's it, you're an Event-Net master.

Go ahead and register for the first member Event of the season “The Spring Thaw Draw” on May, 19th

“The Spring Thaw Draw”

Our annual "Spring Thaw Draw" is scheduled for Next Saturday, May 19th. The Format is a ABC Blind Draw 3 person scramble. A "blind Draw" simply means that we divide the field equally into ability levels based on your handicap (if you don't have one yet...not to worry we'll assign you one) and create teams from the three player categories. This is a great opportunity to meet some of your fellow members as well as welcoming our new members to the club.

This is a 9:00AM shotgun followed by a light luncheon and awards ceremony. We'll also take this opportunity to introduce some new programs for this summer.

I hope to see you all.

Vermont Food Bank Skins Game

On Monday, May 14, Stowe Mountain Resort, Vermont Foodbank and Stowe Country Club team up to help fight hunger in VT. With a donation of a non-perishable food item, golfers can take advantage of a promotional $50 entry fee to the inaugural Vermont Foodbank Skins Game.

“Vermonters have a great history of helping their neighbors,” said Josh Nicholls, Stowe Country Club Manager. “This is the first of hopefully many events here to lend a hand to those in need.”

About The Event

Golfers of all ability levels are welcome.  A ‘Skins Game’ is simply the lowest score on any given hole. “Don’t worry if it sounds complicated, our golf professionals figure everything out for you. All you need to do is have a good time,” says Dan Lehmann, Stowe CC’s Head Professional. In a skins game you never know who’s going to win or how many winners there might be. A breakout of winners will be posted on the resorts website and facebook page and winners will be mailed resort gift cards. A USGA handicap is required for Net prizes, but if you don’t have a handicap you will still be able to compete.

Interested golfers can call 802.760.4653 to sign up; tee times are available throughout the day. The $50 rate includes practice balls to warm up, a golf cart and greens fees. Club members can participate for $10.

About Vermont Foodbank

In 2011, the Vermont Foodbank distributed more than 8 million pounds of food to as many as 86,000 Vermonters. The Vermont Foodbank, a member of Feeding America, is nationally recognized as one of the most effective and efficient nonprofits and Foodbank in the nation.

Golf 2.0

You may have seen the small insert on Golf 2.0 in last week’s Stowe Reporter written by our own Dan Lehmann. Play Golf America – It’s about Friends, Family & Fun!

Do you play Golf? If the answer is yes, then you know there are countless reasons why millions of people play the game; if you don’t, then it’s time to start. Golf is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy some mother nature, its great mental and physical exercise (walking 18 holes is like walking 5 ½ miles), it’s a great way to socialize and make lifelong friendships, and unlike many sports we play in our youth, golf is a game you can play for a lifetime. The greatest thing about golf is that anyone can play. You do not have to be a great golfer to enjoy playing this sport. It does not matter how old you are, whether you are in shape or not, what race or gender you are, or how tall or short you are. The game is meant for everyone.

Unfortunately, golf on a whole is struggling and studies show the game is losing players faster than gaining them. Many point to the fact that takes too long to play, or that the rules are too confusing. In order to reverse the negative trend the entire Industry including the PGA, the USGA, the GCSAA, the NGF and others have banded together to do something about it. Enter Golf 2.0. 

Golf 2.0 is an historic initiative with a laser focus on growing the game. The plan is to focus on three key ideas: new player development, engaging those who once played but left the game, and strengthen the 26 million current golfers. There are already a number of successful programs being rolled out across America and most of them center on one key fact - making the game more fun for everyone. Programs like “Get Golf Ready” which provides inexpensive instruction to beginning golfers, the popular “Tee It Forward” campaign which has golfers play a shorter course, and “The PGA Sports Academy” which is a progressive junior instruction program aimed at long term player development. These are just a few of the more popular ideas to come out of the initiative thus far.  

You have been warned, prepare to get into golf; there is a program specifically designed for you.

To learn about programs in your area visit http://www.playgolfamerica.com/ or call your local golf club and ask them about their Golf 2.0 programs.

Here's some details on a program called Get Golf Ready. It's aimed at beginners and never-evers...if you know some, please spread the word.
