Green Mountain National Golf Course aims for May Day opening

KILLINGTON–Green Mountain National Golf Course will open for the 2015 golf season on Friday, May 1 while skiers and riders are still hitting the slopes at Killington Ski Resort.

“Where else can you golf in the morning and then ski all afternoon except for the Town of Killington?” asked Dave Soucy, GMNGC’s head golf professional and general manager.

To celebrate this intersection of the golf and ski seasons, Green Mountain National is offering a special $35 rate, including cart, with any Killington Resort ski pass or lift ticket until May 14. “The course is in good shape and the greens and fairways weathered the winter well,” said Soucy. “We are very excited to start our 20th season and we have a great year planned for our members and guests.”

Players may notice that the clubhouse and grill have undergone some renovations and redecorating; new air-conditioning units were installed and the bathrooms were completely renovated.

Green Mountain National is proud to host the Vermont State High School Championship this year on June 4. The best high school golfers from across the state will challenge Green Mountain National, and each other, to see who will be the 2015 champions.

Headlining the early summer calendar at Green Mountain National is the return of the American Junior Golf Association’s (AJGA) Killington Junior Golf Championship, featuring the top junior golfers from around the world, back for their sixth year. This year’s tournament, scheduled June 21-25, will once again attract close to 150 players with dreams of joining the PGA and LPGA tours—these young players represent over 20 states and five different countries. AJGA alumni include newly-crowned Masters champion Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods, Phil Michelson, Paula Creamer and Vermont’s own Keegan Bradley.

Adding to this season’s tournament schedule, Green Mountain National will host the Vermont State Women’s Golf Association’s Senior Championship July 15-16. In addition, GMNGC will welcome over a dozen charity golf tournaments and outings that make the course their home year after year.

Golfers can also expect the return of popular club events and activities including Thursday Night Twilight League, the Killington Pico Area Association’s “Wine & Nine” Golf Tournament, and the GMNGC President’s Cup and Club Championships for its members. The course will once again hold weekly open clinics on Saturday mornings and will offer the PGA of America’s “Get Golf Ready” program.
