Welcome to the Golf Season
Welcome. Allow us to express our welcome to you today and every day at Stowe Country Club. SCC is a public-resort course with a rich history, a deep heritage, and valued tradition. 2016 marks the 66th year of the club, and as we have over the past 65 years we will continue to work to provide you a golf experience that you will value.
Stowe Country Club is open for play Saturday. The course came through the relatively mild winter in great shape. Head of Golf Maintenance, Kevin Komer and Course Superintendent, Mark Finch took advantage of the weather and were able to complete drainage and bunker renovations on #18 fairway and rough drainage on hole 13, leveling and sodding of the new back tee on #10, and continued tree work. You can read a more detailed account on Kevin’s excellent Turf Blog.
Please welcome Head Professional RJ Austin. RJ is a Vermont native whose many golf accomplishments include a Kirkwood victory here at SCC. RJ is a wonderful and valued addition to our SCC Family. RJ is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Golf Shop and Outside Services and will assist Sue Horton with instruction when necessary.
Thanks too to Josh Nicholls, who marks his 25th year working for SCC this September. He has compiled this handbook to acquaint you with your Club. There will be questions that arise that are not included here; so please, do not hesitate to ask.
All here at SCC take great pride in our golf course and trust our Members share the same enthusiasm for the game, its traditions and our club. Thank you for joining for the 2016 season. We look forward to seeing you at the course.
Here’s to a great season.
Ron Philo Jr
Stowe Mountain Resort Director of Golf and Club Operations
