Stowe Mountain Lodge Named the #1 Golf Resort in the Northern United States

Mountainside Meeting Destination Receives Top Honor in the 2011 Condé Nast Traveler Golf Poll

Stowe, Vt. (June 6, 2011) — Stowe Mountain Lodge, located in the heart of Stowe Mountain Resort, was recently named “#1 Golf Resort in the Northern US” by prestigious Condé Nast Traveler magazine.  Condé Nast Traveler is one of the most venerated and respected travel publications in the country—and its annual “World’s Best” lists are considered the ultimate nod in travel recognitions.  This award considers eight important features and amenities of the golf resort including course design and access, golf staff and service, rooms, food and dining, location, activities and facilities.  Additionally, Ron Philo, golf director at Stowe Mountain Golf Course, was recently named “2011 Teacher of the Year” by the New England Professional Golf Association.  Philo offers his world-class teaching services at Stowe Mountain Golf Course through private lessons and personalized golf assessments.


Stowe Mountain Golf Course is an exclusive golfing experience located at the base of Spruce Peak, steps from Stowe Mountain Lodge.  The wilderness course, imagined by legendary golf course designer Bob Cupp, was carved into the side of the mountain with minimal impact to the environment. Stowe Mountain Golf Course boasts magnificent fairways and sweeping mountain vistas, with holes reaching heights of over 1,800 feet.  The challenging 18-hole, par 72 course is available for play exclusively by leisure and group guests of Stowe Mountain Lodge.  Stowe Mountain Golf Course is dedicated to environmental stewardship and has been awarded the Audubon International Signature Sanctuary distinction as well as the maximum 5 Green Keys by Green Key International.
