Stowe Golf Spring Update

Hello Stowe Country Club Members,

It's almost 60 degrees. You know what that means. Golf season is right around the corner. We can tell you, that we are always thinking about the season ahead and looking forward to seeing all of you soon.

Just about 80 members took advantage of the Fall Membership Promotion. Next year’s memberships are remaining relatively unchanged with one slight adjustment; each adult membership will include the use of a golf cart. As an added incentive, if you join by the Masters Party (Sunday, April 10…details below) you will be entered into a drawing to win a Titleist 915D2, a Scotty Cameron Putter, or a Titleist Vokey Wedge. You do not need to be in attendance to win. Those who have already purchased their membership are automatically entered into the drawing.

For those of you who play sporadically but still want to maintain your relationship with fellow members, we suggest the ‘Social’ membership, which pays for your dues to the Stowe Golf Asso…

Masters Party

Hello all, the Masters is less than a week away. It is shaping up to be a very competitive event with Jordan Speith defending and Rory, Justin Rose, Jason Day and Phil have all been playing great through the first 1/4 of the season. Who's your pick?

One of my favorite parts of the tournament is the fauna and flora. All of the holes are named after a species that adorn the hills and slopes of the one-time nursery. Holes like Firethorn, Pampas, Tea Olive, and perhaps the signature plant which lends its name to the 13th Azalea. There are over 1,600 azalea bushes lining that hole and when in bloom it is a sight to behold; rumor has it that timing the blossoming bushes to the week of the event has meant packing the plants with ice to slow mother nature.

We hope you can join us for our annual Masters Party at Stowe Mountain Club's New home, the Aline Clubhouse located in the Spruce Village Center. We will be gathering on Sunday, April 10 at 3:00pm to watch the final ro…

New & Improved Golf Performance Program

Image
Lower scores on opening day! The Golf Performance Program (GPP) was developed to increase your enjoyment of the game by providing access to professional instruction to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of your practice time.

Golf is a unique sport. No two golf courses are the same, no two golf swings are the same; however, the underlying principles of effective golf swings are universal.  Students who work to conceptualize and apply these principles improve their swing.

The GPP offers personalized services and instruction for all skill levels and ages.  Our team of PGA Professionals is trained on a multitude of tools to help you analyze your swing; such as video analysis, HD simulation, equipment fitting, customized fitness training, kinesthetic awareness, motion capture analysis, and game management.

Winter GPP - $475   Includes 4 hours of private instruction & practice time on the new Foresight CG2 simulator.Summer GPP - $950Includes 4 hours of private instructi…

Winter Work
When we see a golfer or two walking the golf course with a couple of irons and a pocket full of golf balls around Thanksgiving, it is a telling sign that winter is coming late.  When we see the same people roaming the snow-less property on Christmas Eve it is confirmation that winter is late.  Then to see people hitting balls and carrying a shag bag around the practice field after the New Year, we become skeptical of winter’s arrival.
So how does a winter like this affect the golf course in the spring?  A quick recap of notable events:
66 degrees, December 24th1 inch rain, December 30-31st(-10) degrees, January 5th1 inch rain, January 10th3 degrees, January 11th54 degrees, February 3rd(-18) degrees, February 14th45 degrees with rain, February 16th Ice formation on the turf is the condition we are most concerned about in our region as it pertains to winter turf survival.  The other condition is called crown hydration. This is the harmful freeze-thaw pattern that th…
