We’re moving into June here at the Country Club of Barre and settling into the summer routine.

Bill Evans and the course management team have upgraded bunkers, cleared downed trees and sodded new senior and ladies’ tees on several holes. The grounds crew is working hard to put the club’s best foot forward for the Vermont Amateur Championship July 4-6. We’ll need volunteers to spot for golfers and keep things organized, so please consider helping the club over the 4th of July week.

In the pro shop, Head Golf Professional Joe Dingledine has unpacked and settled in. Joe has scheduled golf club fittings with Ping from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m on June 8 and with Mizuno from noon to 4 p.m. on June 14.

Men’s League begins May 30 with a 5:15 p.m. shotgun start. Golfers can sign up as an A-B-C-D team or individually in the pro shop. The league is limited to 40 players, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible.

On the women’s side the Ladies League kicks off on June 7. League activities are being managed by Patty Baroudi and Dee Lamberton.  Sign up with Patty and Dee and pay the $20 entry fee.

Pete Richards has the bag room and cart operation organized and running, and we’re fortunate to have some great workers (and outstanding athletes) from local schools working in the bag room.  Please try to help us retain our valued staff by tipping for club cleaning and other assistance when appropriate!

By the time you read this the first big member event of the season will be in the rear-view mirror. The popular Maurice Kelley was held May 20 and 21 with a full field of seven teams. The first nine-and-dine of the year was played on May 19. The first two outside tournaments, the Central Vermont Chamber Challenge was played on May 12 under beautiful weather, and the Vermont Senior Golf Association played in frigid temperatures on May 17.

The pro shop is well stocked and ready to supply you with gloves, tees, golf balls, clothing, hats, golf bags and more. Check out our Ping, Taylor Made, Callaway and Mizuno demos, and schedule a lesson with Joe the Pro.

See you at the club very soon!

Members and Friends,

We hope this message finds you healthy and ready for another season at CCB. As you are no doubt aware, the Governor has extended his Stay Home, Stay Safe order until May 15. While our current target opening date is May 16, we are keeping a close eye on the situation and are prepared to open as soon as it is safe and permissible to do so.

When we do open, things will look very different at the club to keep us all safe – we will be strictly adhering to the guidance issued by the State and VGA. More info on VGA guidance can be found here.

Some news and notes:

  • Social distancing at the club – we encourage you all to take advantage of our beautiful golf course while getting your exercise and practicing social distancing. Please keep in mind that the golf course is closed to play, so refrain from bringing your clubs on your walks! We are all understandably getting stir crazy and itching to play golf, but the last thing we as a club need is for word to get out that we’re allowing play when we aren’t supposed to be. Also, be aware that the clubhouse is closed, so we have no restrooms or drinking water on site.
  • As we previously mentioned, our annual workbee was cancelled. Bill and Mitch have done a tremendous job getting the golf course ready for play, but they could always use a hand. If you’d like to get some fresh air and work on the course, please contact Bill Evans (802-522-8353), Mitch Evans (802-477-3755) or Eric Lajeunesse (802-522-7141).
  • Our fleet of 50 golf carts has arrived and they look great! We’re in the process of adding CCB logos which will really make them pop.


  • Huge THANK YOU to all those who have paid your 2020 dues! The financial climate is uncertain for us all, so any payments are greatly appreciated. We will happily set up payment plans upon request.

Please note that all plans are subject to change. We are doing our very best to keep abreast of the situation and keep CCB in the best possible position to succeed this season. We appreciate all that you do for our club and look forward to seeing you all very soon!
