GMNGC readies to open

By Polly Lynn Mikula

Despite new management, Green Mountain National Golf Course is preparing to open nine holes for residents and season pass holders as early as April 27 (if the weather cooperates). Opening for the general public is slated for mid-May.

GMNGC, the town-owned course in Killington, will be managed by an outside company for the first time this season. An agreement was reached and a contract signed with Brown Golf Management on April 17 with it officially starting on May 1. All employees will be hired as BGM employees after that point, except for Peter Bissell, golf course superintendent, and John MacAulay, mechanic, who will remain town employees, according to the contract. Other employees have been sent a letter outlining the hiring process, according to a BGM proposed schedule sent to the Select Board.

The town will remain the owner of the course with major decisions such as rates and fees requiring town approval. The contract duration is three years with automatic extensions for successive one-year periods if not terminated in accordance with set terms. Related
