18th Annual Golf Tournament Raises $20,000!

1st Place Team (L to R): Laura Badger, Jim Hodge, John Merrill, and team captain Tim Sargent.

The 18th Annual Invitational Golf Tournament held on August 4, 2017 was a great success, raising $20,000 for Stowe Land Trust. Thank you to our sponsors and all who attended -- your support makes our work possible!  With the help of over fifty local businesses and individuals who provided everything from gift certificates and golf balls to 5 - star dinners and gift baskets, we had a great time.

The Stowe Land Trust Invitational Golf Tournament, held every year in August at the West Hill Golf Course in Stowe, is hosted by Lee and Alice Spencer. The golf tournament gives our members a unique opportunity to play on a spectacular private golf course while helping Stowe Land Trust protect Stowe's natural beauty.

The West Hill Golf Course is a picturesque and challenging nine hole, 3,255-yard, par 36 course nestled in the hills of Stowe. At the Calcutta Social, teams are auctioned off during an entertaining evening at the Commodores Inn. The following day, the tournament is played in a scramble format and is followed by an awards ceremony and cocktail reception at the clubhouse.
