2nd Annual – VCC “Race the Course” 5K Run & Hill Climb Fun Walk

Our 2nd Annual – VCC “Race the Course” 5K and 1 Mile Hill Climb was a great success!! A special thank you to all our VCC members & friends who volunteered to help with registration, water stations, traffic control & as race marshals.

Our final count was 76 racers…56 for the 5k, and 20 for the 1 Mile Hill Climb. We had a socially distant staggered start and several COVID-19 protocols in place. Hopefully everyone felt comfortable and relieved to finally participate in an event/race again.

See link below to the results (for your interest).

The net proceeds from the race was $2,619. After the awards ceremony, a check in that amount was presented to Officer Carol Davenport (from Sugarloaf Police Department). Officer Davenport was very grateful for the donation and informed everyone present that the funds will be utilized toward training/education and equipment.

Thank you for your continued support of this great event.

Putting Green Expansion – Phase 1 Complete

We are pleased to announce the completion of Phase 1 of our putting green expansion!  This project, constructed by our Greens Superintendent – Eric Reed, and with the help of Green Mountain Excavating, will be complete sometime in 2019 depending on weather, germination and maturation.

This newly expanded green, while providing additional practice area, will also be connected to our existing 18th green creating a special relationship and thus requiring a hole-specific set of rules.  Stay tuned for details from our head Golf Professional and PGA rules savant, Clark Luis.

Sugarloaf Terrace & 19th Hole Patio Complete

We are pleased to announce that our new Sugarloaf Terrace and lower 19th Hole Patio are complete.  This new 1,750 SF elevated terrace, designed by Howard Kulp Architects of Allentown, connects to former clubhouse balcony and wraps around the Sugarloaf Room, providing double stair access to the pool deck level.  The terrace will enhance our Sugarloaf & 19th Hole dining concepts, offering a new outdoor venue for dinning and other special events.

The deck surface is a state-of-the-art composite decking by Admiral SpaceMaker.  This composite decking is made of 100% virgin cellular PVC and is completely waterproof, allowing  the space underneath to be utilized during wet weather.  The perimeter railing is a Feeney DesignRail horizontal wire system, providing uninterrupted views of the our pristine valley and the Sugarloaf Mountain.

We look forward to hosting your special events in this spectacular new venue!
