Event description


Country Club of Vermont is a world class design in a mountain setting that has been home to the Vermont Credit Union Golf Challenge since 2015. The course provides a challenging but virtually private tour through the spectacular Vermont countryside. Sitting on over 200 acres, with no residential construction, travel between holes is minimal, yet each feels secluded, with little or no view of surrounding holes.

The visually imposing front nine is a "links" environment featuring the natural terrain's rolling hills, berms and splendid scenery. Players then go "into the woods", enjoying a back nine of tree-lined fairways, sparkling brooks and some challenging but equally beautiful mountain landscapes.

Corporate Sponsorships

  • ACE Sponsor ($1,100) - includes all golf fees and tournament entry for four (4) players, recognition on our website and in Newslines Express, plus a sponsorship sign bearing your company's logo at the putting contest.

  • EAGLE Sponsor ($700) - identical to an ACE sponsorship but for two players.

Credit Union Sponsorships

  • BIRDIE Sponsor ($975) - includes all golf fees and tournament entry for four (4) players, recognition on our website and in Newslines Express, plus a sponsorship sign bearing your credit union's logo at the putting contest.

  • PAR Sponsor ($600) - identical to a BIRDIE sponsorship but for two players.

($195) Please register as a single golfer and we will do our best to match you with a group.

Organizations and credit unions choosing not to support Vermont Foodbank by being a sponsor can register as a pair of golfers ($390) or as shown below if sending a threesome or foursome:

  • threesome ($585) ... select "One golfer" and one (1) "Pair of Golfers"

  • foursome ($780) ... select (2) next to "Pair of Golfers"

Because this is a charity fundraising tournament, Eventbrite displays all sponsorships and registration options as "free". To maximize the benefit to our charity, online payment is not available. AVCU will invoice your company or credit union directly at the email or mailing address provided during online registration.

Sponsor packages and the individual $195 or $390 pair of golfers entry fees include greens fees, shared cart, a sleeve of golf balls plus 3 mulligans (per golfer), all contest entries, continental breakfast, post-tournament BBQ, and complimentary service from our on-course snack cart staffed by volunteers from the Credit Union Young Professionals of Vermont.

PLEASE NOTE: All registrations submitted via Eventbrite are final and cannot be canceled. Substitutions for previously registered golfers will be accepted until 5:00 PM on Thursday, June 20th (by email only please).

Because AVCU must provide a guaranteed head count to the course in advance, the final registration deadline is Tuesday, June 18th at 5:00 PM.

Vermont CU Golf Challenge Highlights

  • Format: 4 player scramble. All players tee off, the best shot is selected, and the process is repeated until a ball is holed. Every group must use at least three tee shots from each player.

  • Contests: 2 closest to the pin and one putting, each with a $100 VISA gift card for the winner (please note that the same golfer is not eligible to win both closest to the pin contests).

  • Cash Raffle for Vermont Foodbank: Bring cash to buy raffle tickets (2 tickets for $5 or 5 tickets for $10) for a chance to win an amazing prize generously donated by Country Club of Vermont: a FREE WEEKDAY ROUND of GOLF for FOUR w/ CARTS! Since the Club is a private facility that's not open to the public, the value of this prize is priceless ... and 100% of every ticket sold goes directly to Vermont Foodbank!

  • 50/50 Silent Auction: Item donations are welcome from all participating credit unions and companies. Please email AVCU in advance to tell us what you're donating, its approximate value, and provide a link or a picture so we can prepare the Auction Bid Sheet in advance. Please bring your donated item with you to the course on tournament day or have your organization's golfers bring it with them. Auction bidding will begin at 7:30 and continue throughout the day until the items are sold off during the post-BBQ award ceremony. Cash and checks are accepted for winning bids. Silent Auction proceeds will be split 50/50 between Vermont Foodbank and Vermont Credit Union Political Action (VT CUPAC).

  • Hospitality: Continental breakfast begins at 7:30 and the barbecue will begin at approximately 1:30 or when a majority of golfers have completed their round. A cash bar will also be available.

  • Prizes & Awards: Individual contest winners each receive a $100 VISA gift card. Winning low gross and low net team members each receive a $50 clubhouse gift card and a personalized trophy.


7:30 ... On-site check-in, continental breakfast, Raffle ticket sales, and 50/50 Auction bidding begins. Please be sure to arrive no later than 8:15 to allow time to check-in and warm up on the putting green and driving range.
