BRATTLEBORO -- On Saturday and Sunday, May 4-5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., local golfers will be able to tee it up at Brattleboro Country Club -- for free.

As part of the start to Brattleboro Country Club's Centennial Anniversary, which will officially begin on July 1, 2013, the Club is focusing on ‘re-introducing' the club to the greater Brattleboro community. The Club is also offering a 2013 membership rate of $995, which delivers unlimited golf for the season, and has also lowered regular greens fees to a level that makes them the most affordable and best value in the area.

But, according to Marketing Committee Chair Robert Anderson, the first step is to offer players a chance to see what they've been missing.

"For the last several years, the local word has been that Brattleboro Country Club is off limits," said Anderson. "We want to make it clear to everyone that that perception is incorrect, that all are welcome either as members or on a daily fee basis, and to see that membership is really far more beneficial and fiscally advantageous -- that it really does have its privileges, if you will."

On May 4-5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., players will be able to play the course, with carts if they choose, at no cost. Complimentary light refreshments will also be available on the course during their round. Tee times MUST be made in advance by calling the pro shop at 802-257-7380, and there will be a limit of one complimentary round per player for the weekend.

‘We would really like this to open some eyes, particularly in the local area," said Membership Committee Chair Les Eustace. "We want people to see that a summer of golf can be fun and affordable. And we feel we consistently have some of the best conditions in the area, thanks to our staff. So why drive 30 minutes, or more, every weekend to play somewhere else when you have the best of everything right here?"

With roots stretching back to its founding in 1914, but a feel as contemporary as its 2000 remodeling, the Brattleboro Country Club is an 18-hole championship-caliber course located in Brattleboro, shareholding member-owned but open to the public. The Wayne Stiles-Steve Durkee design offers golfers of all abilities variety as well as challenge, in routinely superb condition. Playing at Brattleboro will reveal why the club has hosted numerous state championship tournaments for men and women, as well as the USGA Men's Senior Amateur. BCC also features three practice greens, an extensive driving range, a fully stocked pro shop, and the Fairway Tavern, which offers top-quality food and beverage daily and is open to both playing and non-playing public.
