2017 Vermont Amateur Champion

Drake Hull












Congratulations to Drake Hull, Rutland CC, for a dramatic win at the 2017 Vermont Amateur Championship.  Tied for the lead after the 16th hole, Drake birdied #17 to go one up and capped off the win with a final birdie on #18 to finish -7 for the event.


Congratulations also to Troy Evans, CC of Barre, who battled hard with an amazing final round of 64 (-5 for the tournament) trying to capture his 1st Vermont Amateur title and to Bryson Richards, also from the CC of Barre (-4), who struggled a bit in the 3rd round but came roaring back in the final round in his hunt for the title, with a picture perfect eagle on the 16th hole. The final round was golf at its finest!


Congratulations to Rutland CC team for a runaway victory in the McCullough Cup competition, maintaining possession of the cup for the 4th year in a row!

A great big shout out to Proctor-Pittsford CC and all the players who came out yesterday, August 10th, and participated in the 2017 VGA Scholarship Fund Scramble.

The Scholarship Fund Scramble is the biggest fundraising event of the season and it is through the support and generosity of all of the participants that the Scholarship Fund continues to provide much needed funds to deserving Vermont students during their college careers.


George Smith (Rutland), Floyd James (Burlington), Ralph Eaton (Middlebury), Urban Wakefield (St. Johnsbury), and William Chesley (Burlington) established the Vermont Golf Association Scholarship Fund in 1964.  Its function is to raise and distribute financial aid to help Vermont boys and young women further their education with money donated by Vermont golfers.


The first grant was for $400 for four years.  In 2004, they increased the number of grants to 10 for $1000 for four years, raising the annual scholarship monies to $40,000 per year.


To date, more than 441 Vermont young men and women have received scholarship assistance totaling more than $1,300,000.  The Vermont Seniors Golf Association was founded in 1935 and reorganized in 1962.  In 1977, they developed an innovative program initiated through the efforts of William Chesley, Treasurer.  This program solicited monies from members of the Vermont Seniors Golf Association, through their annual dues, for the express purpose of the development of the Vermont Golf Association Scholarship Fund Investment Account.  Golfers throughout the region, the Vermont Golf Association, the Vermont Women’s Golf Association, the Vermont Golf Course Superintendents Association, the Vermont Seniors Golf Association and local businesses donate to the Scholarship Fund.  Today, the Vermont Golf Association Scholarship Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, provides 40 Vermont and nearby New York and New Hampshire scholars $1000 annually for four years.
