KILLINGTON - Despite challenging weather and a rained-out
qualifier the AJGA and GMNGC staff worked together to get the
entire 54-hole tournament completed. This included a 6 a.m. start
on Wednesday to complete round one before beginning round two.
A full field of 144 players, plus their families, came out for
the AJGA tournament. Participants represented 20 different states
and six different countries (New Zealand, S. Korea, Canada, Russian
Federation, Hong Kong/China, USA.)
Parents said that GMNGC was one of their favorite AJGA venues
because of both the beauty of the course and the hospitality of the
entire Killington community.
