Green Mountain National Golf Course opens March 24

We know that all the skiers and riders in Killington are still hoping for a big March storm but things here at GMNGC are looking pretty green. Our Superintendent Peter Bissell says that the course is in the best shape it has ever been in this early and thinks there is no reason to wait before we start "teeing it up."

For the first time in history GMNGC will be open in the month of March! Saturday, March 24 at 8 a.m., to be specific, another great season of golf will begin. The Back 9 will need a few extra days to get ready but the Front 9 will be ready to go. Memberships available or just play 18 holes with a cart for the special rate of $40.

GMNGC has has a new Facebook Fan Page. They will still continue to send regular email newsletters but the Facebook page will be updated daily with the latest GMNGC news, events and tournaments. GMNGC will also have special deals, contests and incentives that will be exclusive to Facebook "friends!"

The Vermont Golf Association's Men's State Day at GMNGC is scheduled for Wednesday, June 13 and for the first time registration for this year's event is online only at the VGA website. Vermont State Day's are great opportunity to play some of the best courses at a special rate and are open to any male golfer who is a member at a Vermont golf club and has a current and valid GHIN handicap. To register for the GMNGC State Day please www.vtga.org.

It is going to be a great season here at Green Mountain National, with lots of events to look forward to including the Vermont State Amateur Championship. We have just started putting together our Events Calendar, so keep checking back here in the Mountain Times so you don't miss a thing!
