Spring aerification of our greens will be happening June 1-2. The front nine will be closed for the day on June 1 and the back nine will be closed on June 2. We appreciate your understanding – our outstanding maintenance crew and their efforts are what make CCB truly a cut above the rest!
We hope this finds you well and that you’ve had an opportunity to get out and play a round or two. Bill, Peter and the rest of our wonderful staff have done a great job getting us open for play under difficult circumstances.
As you’ve probably seen by now, we have a beautiful new tee complex on #8! A huge thanks goes out to Mike and Eric Lajeunesse and Ed Corrigan for their hard work. In addition we’d like to thank the Saturday Morning Group, Sunday Funday Group and John McGee for their generous donations to defray the cost to the club. All told we received nearly $2,000 in donations for this project!
Without the generosity of our members we wouldn’t be able to provide the stellar golf conditions and upgrades that we’ve all become used to. Next on the agenda is a new forward tee for #9. If you are interested in making a donation to the cause, please contact Peter in the shop or Tom Collins.
Friendly reminder that the social distancing measures in place at the Country Club of Barre are not optional. Please ensure that you are following the guidelines. We all need to continue to do our part to keep everyone safe and remain open.
A few bits to remember:
- The golf shop remains closed to members and the public unless you are explicitly authorized to enter. Contact Peter and his crew over the phone (802-476-7658) to pay for a cart or green fees or to arrange for curbside pickup of merchandise.
- Please do not attempt to pay with cash. We are only accepting credit or debit card payment at this time.
- If you must congregate, limit groups to less than 10 people and please do not hang out in the parking lot or at the club following your round.
- If you’re hungry and thirsty after a round, Fairways & Greens would be happy to get you an order to go!
We thank you for your understanding and your cooperation!
A couple bits of information for you:
Many of our neighbors are using the roads to exercise and we’ve received a few complaints of cars driving at a high rate of speed. While we are all very excited to be on our way to the course, please be mindful of your speed on the roads around the club. The speed limit on roads leading to CCB are 35 mph.
We need to reiterate that the pro shop will NOT BE ACCEPTING CASH. In order to keep our staff safe, please do not attempt to pay for anything with cash until further notice. Peter and his folks will be happy to place a credit or debit card on file allowing you to pay for any merchandise or cart rentals via telephone.
All members are expected to have an approved payment plan with the Board of Directors or to have paid their dues in full prior to playing. Dues can be paid online at ccofbarre.com.
We thank you for your cooperation. See you at the course!

Great news, we have been given clearance to open for the 2020 season! As we mentioned previously, while we are opening for play, things will still look and feel far different from normal. Please read on to find out how things have changed.
When can I play?
The Pro Shop will be open and available to reserve tee times starting at 8:00 on Thursday May 7 via phone only.
CCB Members – We will be open to member play only May 7-8, 2020. All members who would like to play must contact the Pro Shop by phone to make a tee time – walk-in tee times will not be permitted. You must let the staff know all members of your group and whether they will be walking or riding. All cart rentals must be paid in advance and we ask that you contact the pro shop to place a credit or debit card on file that may be charged. Member reserved tee times will not be honored until Monday May 11, so please plan accordingly.
Non-members & Guests – As of Saturday, May 9 we will also open to all residents of Vermont. Again, tee times will be required and must be reserved through the Pro Shop at (802) 476-7658 – walk-in tee times will not be permitted. The shop must be notified of all players in the group and whether those players will be walking or riding. All cart rentals and green fees must be paid in advance.
Online tee time booking will be available for members and non-members beginning Monday, May 11. Walk in tee times will still not be permitted.
Safety Measures Implemented:
We will not be accepting cash for any payments. All payments must be made via credit or debit card, either by phone or on our website. Again, NO CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Tee times will be available at 15-minute increments to allow for physical distancing between groups.
Carts will be restricted to one player and one bag per cart – no exceptions. We have 50 new carts this season, but we highly encourage anyone able to walk the course to do so.
Clubhouse will remain closed to all. The locker rooms and bagroom will be closed until further notice. We are installing two porta-potties on the golf course and drinking water will be available to purchase through Fairways & Greens ($1.00 per bottle).
Fairways & Greens will be offering curbside pickup only – please call (802)505-4023 or (802)371-9826 to place your order.
The Pro Shop will be closed to all, but that does not mean you need to buy gloves, balls, and other supplies elsewhere. Peter and staff will have goods available for curbside pickup. Please contact him via email (email@example.com) or phone (802)476-7658 to place your order before you play.
All flagsticks must always remain in the hole. Bill and staff have installed pool noodles in each cup to allow you to remove your ball from the hole without touching the flag or lip of the hole.
Bunker rakes, scorecards/pencils and trash cans have been removed from the golf course. We encourage the use of electronic scoring on your personal cell phone.
The driving range will remain closed until further notice. Practice putting greens will be open so you can warm up prior to play – you may not use the areas unless you have a tee time.
Physical distancing guidelines are still in effect, so please remember to stay at least 6 feet from others whenever possible.
We thank you for you understanding and your efforts to continue to practice social distancing measures. These restrictions are subject to change. See you all at the club!
