Golf Course Overview:
Stowe Country Club is an 18-hole semi-private resort golf club designed by William Mitchell that opened in 1964. The golf course is set in the iconic village of Stowe, VT with views of the Worcester mountain range, Mt. Mansfield, and Camel’s Hump. The course sees approximately 18,000 rounds annually. The golf course is mainly a creeping bentgrass and annual bluegrass blend with a central Rain Bird irrigation control. Starting in 2012, we began the long-term transformation of Stowe Country Club into one of the premier courses in Vermont. The first phases of our master plan occurred over the past several years with tree clearings, new tee boxes, drainage and fescue grow-in. Currently, the next major phase of the plan consists of a complete redesign/reconstruction of the #7 and #8 green complex. Construction is slated to begin on September 7th. Stowe Country Club has chosen Beau Welling Design to assist with this renovation and to stay on as part of future renovations.
