    Unofficial Vermont Spring 2017 Gathering - Great Beer, Good Golf

    Stemming from an idea in the Beer thread, Marty (@MPLefty) and I were thinking of coordinating a gathering of THP'ers in the spring in/around Stowe, VT to enjoy some REALLY good beer , maybe visit a brewery (or 5) and play some golf.

    Dates and course location are TBD but thinking late spring (May?) so the snow will be gone and whenever it doesn't interfere with other THP events.

    Wanted to put it out there early to see if there was general interest in the location and we can go from there.

    It was calm the day we played. Course was one of the most visually pleasing I've played in my life. It winds up through the mountain side. $205.00 for the round. I almost choked but it was a bucket list track.

    Stowe Country Club (also associated with Stowe Mountain, just not as exclusive as Stowe Mountain Club) has a "twilight" rate of $67.50 with cart after 2pm, normally $122.50. Maybe we look into a 2pm tee time? depending upon the size of group, maybe we can get a group rate?
