Tee Off :: Roll into the Season at the Killington Golf Course

Golfers have been hitting the links for nearly 600 years. Bring your swing and join the tradition as we set the 2014 season rolling at the Killington Golf Course.

2. There are 336 dimples on a regulation golf ball – one for nearly every day of the year.

 

3. The first golf balls were made of thin leather stuffed with feathers.

 

 

4. The first known use of the word “dimple” is recorded in the fifteenth century – from Middle English “dympull.” These markings in the golf ball’s surface actually reduce drag for better drives.

5. Geoffrey Cornish, the Killington Golf Course Architect, planned golf courses around the world, including its longest in Bolton, MA.
