Killington Resort Golf Course Killington, Vermont

Killington Resort’s golf course was designed by Geoffrey Cornish, and the course wanders through beautiful mountain terrain of Vermont.

Streams, a 2,000-foot elevation, and stunning vistas create a magical venue to enjoy the game. The 6,186-yard, par-72 championship level course is the centerpiece of golf at the Vermont resort.

The second hole is a 515-yard par-five that demands a long, straight drive to set up the second shot. The green is reachable in two shots by big hitters, but there is water that fronts the putting surface, so the wiser play is layup and wedge for the third shot.

The sixth hole is a nice little par-three that plays 147 yards from the tips. But you’ll have to hit one more club than usual because it’s uphill to the green.

The ninth hole is a fun par-four that is attainable off the tee with driver, as it measures just 286 yards from the back markers. There are bunkers guarding either side of the putting surface.

The 12th hole is another short par four playing 321 yards. The drive must carry water about halfway to the hole. But a decent tee shot will easily clear the wet stuff and leave you with a short wedge in.

The 18th is a nice finishing hole, playing 321 yards. Be careful on your tee shot on the par-four as water hugs the left side of the fairway.

But there’s also a practice facility, including a 12,000-square-foot putting green and practice bunker, a retail pro shop with all the essentials you will need to enjoy your round and stay, private lessons, multi-day golf schools and junior specialty experiences, a caddy shack on-course with food and beverage offerings, and a clubhouse bar and grill with indoor and outdoor seating for après golf.
