Okemo Valley Golf Club is open for the seasonMay 3, 2019
LUDLOW, Vt. – May 3, 2019 – Okemo Valley Golf Club opened for the 2019 season, with all 18 holes of play, on Friday, May 3.
Okemo Valley Golf Club is Vermont's first heathland-style golf course and features a championship 18-hole layout and a welcoming, full-service clubhouse. The layout is a par 70 that measures 6,400 yards in length and features bent grass greens, tees and fairways with multiple tee areas for each hole, ensuring playability and challenge for all ability levels. Rolling hills, moderate elevation changes and wide fairways with well-placed hazards enhance the beautiful heathland layout.
The course was designed by Vermont golf architect Steve Durkee. It has hosted the Vermont PGA Championship, NEPGA Senior Championship, the United States Women’s Public Links Qualifier and various Vermont professional tournaments.
“The golf course fared well over the winter,” said OVGC Head Golf Professional Michael Santa Maria. “Okemo Valley Golf Club continues to be one of the finest in Vermont.”
An 18-acre training area is an ideal place to learn how to golf or fine tune some skills. In addition to private lessons and daily learning programs, weekly clinics and a junior golf camp are planned this summer.
Tater Hill Golf Club, located in nearby Windham, Vermont, opened for the season on Thursday, May 2.
