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.
