The 2023 golf season is underway at Country Club of Barre, and the board of directors is very pleased to welcome back Joe Dingledine as its new PGA Professional, 29 years after he first served as Barre’s Assistant Golf Professional beginning in 1994. Since 2016 Joe has been the PGA Teaching Professional at Montague Golf Club in Randolph. Before that, he was the Head Golf Professional at Northfield Country Club for nine years. Joe is a Certified US Kids Golf Instructor and his proficiency in golf instruction, tournament operations, and Pro Shop management will be strong assets as he takes on his new role at CCB.

“I am excited to return to the Country Club of Barre, where I have many friends and great memories from my work here 22 years ago,” Dingledine said. “Bill Evans and his crew have really improved the course over the years, and we’re excited to host the Vermont State Amateur Championship in early July.”

Opening day at the Country Club of Barre was Thursday, April 20. Course Superintendent Bill Evans and his crew have created several new tee boxes, improved drainage and rebuilt bunkers over the last few years. Recently named one of the top five courses in Vermont by Golf Magazine, in 2023 CCB will host the Vermont Amateur Championship July 4-6.
