Green Mountain National Golf Course has a brand new facility to
brighten a golfer's day. The Players Comfort Stop is located on the
site of the former home of Gracie Barrows, which sits between the
3rd fairway and the 6th green. As many may know, much of
Green Mountain National Golf Course was built on land that was
purchased from the Barrows Family. The clubhouse restaurant
"Gracie's Grill" was named in her honor.
The new facility boasts two restrooms and will serve as a
grounded shelter for those golfers unlucky enough to get caught in
a storm. The Comfort Stop is fully ADA complaint, and will serve
GMN well as it hosts the Eastern Amputee Golf Association
tournament for the seventh consecutive year.
This project was a unified effort by many volunteers (who
provided all the labor) and sponsors in our town and was
spearheaded by the Killington Rotary. We would like to
extend our thanks to the Rotary, Horace "Red" Glaze, Chad Aston,
John Curtis, Leo Davin, Paul Holmes, Ken Lee, additional volunteers
Jonathon Glaze, Gerald Pfeifenberger, our course personnel Dave
Soucy, Peter Bissell, John McCauley and the businesses Goodro
Lumber, Craven Electric & Pelletier Plumbing.
A special hat's off goes to Red Glaze who lead the construction
crew as well as designed this wonderful addition to GMN and to
Goodro Lumber who provided generous donations and discounts on the
