The Player's Club at the Country Club of Vermont
The Country Club of Vermont has launched The Players Club, an exciting new instructional culture and innovative philosophy dedicated to player development for any level golfer. Our professional staff are coaches, not just swing instructors, committed to the whole player: physical, mental and strategic. We guarantee results because we know that the path to happier players is by them learning to play the game on the golf course, not being stuck on a driving range trying to fix their golf swings.
Year after year our Player’s Club members have produced better scores and even wider smiles. We’ve simplified the game for them, taught them to play with far less stress and encouraged them to take ownership of their own swings, not ones taught to them as a “one swing fits all” theory. From solo coaching sessions for beginners, through year round programs for up and coming juniors, to small group coaching for men and women, through elite training for the avid competitor, CCVT is committed to a player experience like no other.
