Bob Cupp was a talented architect but his effort at Stowe Mountain is overly shaped and sits on top of the land rather than blending within it.

The Vermont countryside is certainly present and the eye-candy appeal is certainly present throughout the round.

The land site is fairly cramped and, as a consequence, Cupp had to shoe horn holes too near to one another.

When you have a dominant ski operation the golf side of the equation is often forced to deal with land that can prove to be an insurmountable chore to work with in creating compelling design. Give Cupp plenty of credit for routing the layout given what he had to work with, however, the ultimate outcome is golf layout that makes too many compromises to be more than just a one round and done experience.
