AJGA tournament results

KILLINGTON - Despite challenging weather and a rained-out qualifier the AJGA and GMNGC staff worked together to get the entire 54-hole tournament completed. This included a 6 a.m. start on Wednesday to complete round one before beginning round two.

A full field of 144 players, plus their families, came out for the AJGA tournament. Participants represented 20 different states and six different countries (New Zealand, S. Korea, Canada, Russian Federation, Hong Kong/China, USA.)

Parents said that GMNGC was one of their favorite AJGA venues because of both the beauty of the course and the hospitality of the entire Killington community.
