Inaugural season of the Killington Junior Golf League dubbed a success


Fall season is now underway; new participants welcome

By Arra Derderian, Killington Parks and Recreation Board

The inaugural season for the Killington Junior Golf League was a success this summer having nine children between the ages of 9-12 years old participating. The program lasted through July and August. The children had instructional range time provided by Coach Jonathan Brisbane each Tuesday morning. 

Supplementary to that, the kids had a league night Monday nights where Coach Jason Evans and I (Arra Derderian) took the kids out on the course to practice driving, chipping, and putting.

“The kids progressed immensely in the program and learned the rules of the game and how to move around the golf course properly,” the coaches stated.

Green Mountain National Golf Course hosted the summer season and is again this fall for the second session of the Killington Junior Golf League. League play is held on Thursdays from 4-5 p.m. for 8 weeks from Sept. 14 to Nov. 2. 

The league is open to kids age 9-12 years old from Killington and surrounding towns. It’s free to enroll in the fall session. But children will need to wear appropriate attire, shoes, and have a set of clubs.
