Golf: Stowe Country Club:
In the heart of Stowe, you'll find the Stowe Country Club. The Club offers players a tour through the rich history of golf in Vermont. Located on a turn-of-the-century dairy farm, its clubhouse residing in the original brick farmhouse, the 6,200-yard layout tests the skill of any player. The 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains, the long temperate summer days, and the feeling that everything is going your way makes each shot a memory to cherish. It is also the home of the Vermont Golf Academy, which offers a variety of instructional sessions designed to polish every aspect of your game.
