Stowe Country Club, part of The Lodge at Spruce Peak's 36 holes of golf is located in the heart of New England’s premier skiing towns, but they do great golf as well, though. The golf course at Stowe Country Club boasts undulating fairways and well-maintained greens. Built on what was once a dairy farm, the course offers a challenging but approachable round of golf. And its panoramic mountain views are a delight for all golfers. For off-course activities, head into Stowe, which boasts a range of shopping, restaurants and other activities.

Hot weather
Walked

A disappointing start, as the pro shop was out of scorecards (they don't have a photocopier?). Luckily, the starter had one for us, but it didn't have a map of the course to help us find our way around our first time here. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Probably the best conditioned course we have ever played, but we're not accustomed to playing $100 courses. A couple of the greens had some thin spots, but nothing major. Irrigated fairways were lush and weed free. Just wish the members were more conscientious about replacing divots. Hardly a flat spot on this mountain course, including the putting surfaces. A difficult course for older folks like us to walk on a hot day, with all the ups and downs, but still quite playable. Not too many water hazards, and the bunkers appeared to all be in good shape. A good choice, if you can afford it.

Fast course with good players, but pricey

This was the option in Stowe for me since I wasn't paying $250 for a monday morning round at the "Mountain Course".

We finished 18 in 3 hours, which is a great pace. The condition of the course was good and the course was peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. Loved playing in the mountains and had a nice round. I payed $100 (with cart) for the round, which is too much for what it was. I'd compare it to a $75 course in my area (massachusetts).

Overall a pleasant course during a vacation.

Great time.

Enjoyed a complimentary round unsuspectingly one day. Myself and two young boys. Had a blast. No waiting, wasn't pushed, about as pleasant as a round could be when you hit the ball the way I do. Fairways are super soft and about perfect. Rough was great, on every hole. Greens were big and fast, held shots that weren't skulled. Beautiful scenery as expected.

Fair at Best, Highly Overpriced!

Nice to OK course, I got a Hot Deal at $36, less $20 promo code. At $36.00 the price is fair, anything more than overpriced. Course conditions are OK, not great, but not poor. Layout OK at best, Staff OK.
Probably would not play this course again unless less than $30. I can't believe they have members.

Beautiful Location and Views

Love this course, a bit challenging for the higher handicap player but still fun. Stopped for a snack at the turn, they delivered it to us on the 11th tee box! Who does this? Highly recommend this place if you are in Stowe.

Awesome Course - Fantastic Conditions

This was my first time playing Stowe Country Club. I love the course, the conditions. Everything was great.
Staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. They allowed me to tee off early since it was not too crowded today. I really appreciated their hospitality helpfulness.
The practice facilities at the course are great. One of the best practice areas anywhere.
The course was in fantastic condition. Tee boxes, greens, fairways, bunkers, everything was well maintained and in great condition.
I loved the greens. They are fast, smooth and are a true challenge. There are lots of humps, undulations and subtle breaks which are a challenge to read. Everything is very lush and green and beautiful.
The views you have are spectacular. The surrounding mountains are beautiful. There are lots and lots of elevation changes which ads to the challenge of the course.
Thoroughly enjoyable round of golf. I will definitely play here again next time I am in the area.

Decent course given limited options

Not much else in the area. Course was in good shape. Not overly long or difficult. Pace of play was slow (played Sunday afternoon...lot of kids and couples playing). Left after 15 holes. Round would have been 4:30-4:40 had we finished entire round. Best part of the course was the practice facilities. Grass tees. Three separate hitting areas, with a ton of room. Nice chipping / bunker area. Semi-private club, so not sure what the availability of tee times is, or if members have preferred benefits.

Challenging hilly course in excellent condition

The regular price is overpriced for the quality of the course. The Hot Deal from Golf Now brought the price down from $130 to $50 w/cart. That is about the right price for the course. Staff were great and the check in process was quick and easy. Range balls are included.
Course is quite hilly. Overall course condition is very good to excellent. Everything on the course and in the faciilities is very well maintained.

Very scenic & interesting course

Golf Now Hot Deal is a good price for this course. Course is overpriced at it’s regular price. Hilly. Some very challenging greens & tough par 3’s. Greens very fast but too firm. Several shots onto the greens rolled off the back. Beautiful views of the mountains. Staff very courteous.

Good Mountain Layout With Great Views

Luckily I played this course with three members so they helped me with the blind shots. Great layout but the bunkers were not well maintained and lacked sand. Worth a try at Golfnow rates.
