In just a few short weeks it will be opening day on the golf course at BCC and soon after, the swimming pool will also open for the season. While we semi-patiently await springtime in Vermont, the Clubhouse staff continues to prepare for the busy months ahead. We would like to take a minute to formally introduce ourselves and explain how we may be of assistance to you:
