Roots of Golf

Learn about golf at Friday’s Roots of Golf clinic from 4PM-5PM at the Stratton Golf Course. This clinic explains the “roots” of golf and how it started as a “social game”, the beauty and the friendships developed, and how their golf journey is a journey for life. Explain the process of utilizing the golf driving range, how to make a tee time, and how to take the pressure off once you get on the golf course. Understand the importance of learning the fundamentals and how the fundamentals differ from person to person. Hit golf balls with instruction at the Golf Course practice facility. One drink from Green Apron is included with your registration.

Learn to Tie Dye

Nothing like a good Tie Dye session to kick off the summer season. You will receive everything you need including dyes and rubber bands as well as your choice of a tee shirt or tank top to customize at southern Vermont’s highest peak. This event is taking place Saturday and Sunday from 11AM-12PM.
