Stowe Mountain Golf Club
A breathtaking Vermont mountain golf course designed by the legendary Bob Cupp, with the help of Mother Nature.
It's especially rare that an 18-hole, par 72-layout can challenge every level of player but remain friendly to the environment. Such is the case at the Stowe Mountain Golf Club course - 6,400 environmentally respectful yards, now Vermont's first Audubon International signature sanctuary. This Vermont golf course has caught the attention of the golfing world. Stowe Mountain Golf Club, recognized by Golf Magazine as one of the "Top Ten New Courses in the United States that you can play," meanders along the slopes of Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak, reaching an elevation of more than 1,800 feet.
It is this dramatic setting that has caused golf course designer Bob Cupp to remark, "Once every few decades, a spectacular sight for golf appears. Such is the case at the foot of Mount Mansfield in Vermont. There may be no finer collection of short par fours anywhere in America." This Vermont golf course is available to Stowe Mountain Golf Club members, as well as our guests - an exclusive club and course at the peak of perfection.
Created by the legendary designer Bob Cupp, this true wilderness golf course winds gently around the sparkling Peregrine Lake and mountain streams. A magnificent stand of New England hardwood, pine and birch trees line many of the fairways at this Stowe, Vermont golf resort. The dramatic elevation gain (400'+) throughout the golf course allows for sweeping views of the surrounding ski slopes and Little River Valley below.
A role model for sustainable development and environmental protection, the Vermont golf course is surrounded by 2,000 protected acres of pristine conservation land and is the first in Vermont to achieve Audubon International Signature Sanctuary certification. Environmental initiatives include the creation of a 111-million gallon body of water, called Peregrine Lake, for state-of-the-art golf course irrigation. Optimal and environmentally sound course conditions are ensured by 2,000 sprinkler heads, three pump stations, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) SDR 9 Pipe and Toro Site-Pro® technology for turf management needs.
While each of the holes are "signature" - singularly beautiful and challenging - the fourth hole, the most demanding of the front nine, could only have been created in New England. The back tee plays across a scenically winding mountain road and the three forward tees are pedestals set upon dramatic boulder walls, which are indigenous to Stowe. The hole is long iron yardage and the slope to the right of the bunkers is sharply down to the right. Trees are lined behind the back slope, but the entire right side is an open meadow. A babbling brook crosses under the road and behind the forward tees where it disappears into the trees right of the meadow.
