Golf news briefs from Green Mountain

April showers bring great golf in May! As much as we hated to see the temperatures dip at the beginning of the week, the course got some much needed rain and is exploding with our favorite color, green!

We keep adding more events and activities to our events calendar every day, so be sure to stop by the Pro Shop or visit our website for a summer full of fun.

We'll be kicking-off Thursday Night Twilight League on Thursday, May 10 with a special night sponsored by Long Trail Ale. Great Long Trail prizes are up for grabs. Twilight League is a fun, relaxed, five person "blind-draw" scramble and beginners are always encouraged to attend, so bring your friends! $15 for members / $25 for non-members includes golf, cart, prizes and dinner.

The Teddy Bridges' Memorial Scholarship Fund on Monday, May 14 is filling up fast, so be sure to reserve a spot for your team today. Mr. Bridges was a legend in the Vermont hospitality industry and was named an "Ambassador of Vermont Tourism" during his long and distinguished career. Proceeds from this tournament go toward a scholarship fund that helps students pursue careers in the resort and tourism industry.

The Killington / Pico Rotary will be holding their annual to tournament to benefit the Rutland Area Visiting Nurses and Hospice on Wednesday, May 30 and we hope to see all of our members out to support this great cause.

Everyone wants to shoot lower scores, so we have some great instructional clinics both Saturday mornings, starting at 10:30 a.m., and Tuesday evenings, starting at 6 p.m., to help you shave off a few strokes. Plus, Green Mountain National has three of the finest golf instructors in New England, so if you'd like to schedule a private lesson give us a call and Dave, Richard or Alan get you back in the "swing" of things.
