After an amazing ski and snowboard season, Okemo is ready to welcome another season. Okemo Valley Golf Club is scheduled to open for the 2011 season on Wednesday, April 27. Reduced, early springtime greens fees will be offered for a limited time.
Okemo Valley Golf Club is Vermont’s first heathland-style golf course and was designed according to the traditions of the game. The resort features a championship 18-hole layout, a welcoming, full-service clubhouse, indoor practice facility and 18-acre state-of-the-art outdoor training center. 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 at Okemo Valley Golf Club 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.
Okemo Valley Golf Club has won national awards and is recognized as one of the top golf facilities in the Northeast. Most recently, the May issue of Golf Digest named OVGC the top public course in Vermont
Starting Sunday, May 8, and taking place every Sunday through May 29, OVGC will offer complimentary junior clinics: 1-2 p.m. for ages 9-11 and 2-3 p.m. for ages 12-14. Class size is limited to the first 25 students to register for each clinic. Register by calling the Pro Shop at 228-1396.
New players can start the season off right with the Play Golf America Get Golf Ready series of lessons for new golfers.
