GMNGC to host Killington Junior Golf Championship, July 2-6
KILLINGTON — In 2016, the town of Killington announced the renewal of a two-year contract with the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) to host the Killington Junior Golf Championship at Green Mountain National Golf Course. This year, it will be held July 2-6, marking the eighth year held at the course.
The Killington Junior Golf Championship attracts around 200 of the world’s best junior golfers, and their families, from over 20 states and five countries. The event brings nearly 2,000 people to the Killington area providing a significant boost to local hotels and restaurants and contributing an estimated average of $200,000 in local economic impact each year.
“We are thrilled for this continued partnership with the AJGA,” said Dave Soucy, PGA professional and general manager of GMNGC. “Each year the tournament brings so much to our community, and it’s great to see these talented young golfers come out to challenge Green Mountain National year after year.”
