Located adjacent to the 2nd highest peak in Vermont, Killington is a true mountain course. Designed by Geoffrey Cornish and built in 1983, this layout is a beast to walk. Although relatively short (6,168 yards, 70.3/129 rating), the opening and closing series of holes play over some significant elevations which seem to make the course play longer and tougher.
The fairways are treelined and a fair amount of water is in play. The greens tend to be mid-size to reasonably large with a moderate amount of bunkering. One definitely needs to be a straight hitter and the ability to judge distances up or downhill is a real plus.
Located in central Vermont, the course is off Route 4 north of Rutland.
