It’s never too early to start looking ahead to Vermont’s beautiful fall foliage. As the calendar flips to September and the leaves begin to change color, golfers from all over North America escape to Killington for spectacular autumn golf getaways. Offering only the best Killington lodging options, The Killington Group have cozy mountainside chalets, townhomes, and newly renovated condominiums. Avoid overpriced resorts and hotels, and choose the vacation rental that perfectly suits your golf group. The Killington area is home to some of the most stunning autumn golf courses in New England. These five courses have beautiful natural surroundings, pristine landscapes, and challenging setups.

Green Mountain National Golf Course

The unanimous number one public golf course in the great state of Vermont is the Green Mountain National Golf Course, seven miles north of the Killington Ski Area. Green Mountain National features breathtaking fall foliage, dramatic tee shots, pristine bunkers, and mountainside greens. The rates are among the best in the state, despite being the most sought after round of golf in Vermont. The Killington Group is proud to offer Stay and Play packages for those hoping to swing away at Green Mountain National.

Killington Golf Course

The Killington Golf Course is steps away from many of our vacation rentals, depending on which one you choose. Every hole offers spectacular Green Mountain and Killington Peak vistas. Enhance your round by cruising through the course on the newest golf craze: a golf board. This golf course is convenient, scenic, and challenging. Keep your eyes peeled for adorable black bears, foxes, and deer as they often trek across the fairways. Save money on greens fees through our Stay and Play packages.

Rutland Country Club

No golf course in New England can match the stunningly colorful Green Mountain views at the Rutland Country Club. This semi-private country club was built in 1901 on the outskirts of the scenic valley city of Rutland. You’ll fall in love with their dramatic tee shots, immaculate greens, and colorful encircling forest. After 18 memorable holes, grab a pint and lunch on the patio at the onsite Baxter’s Restaurant. This Rutland staple is widely known for their delicious seafood, nightly dinner specials, and spectacular mountain vistas. Rutland is a scenic 15-minute drive from many of our premier Killington lodging options.

Woodstock Country Club

The valley views at Woodstock Country Club aren’t nearly as sweeping as the ones at Rutland Country Club, but Woodstock does have the best fall foliage in the Killington area. This charming country club is less than a mile south of Woodstock, a quintessential autumn Vermont town. Colorful hills and mountains entirely encircle the Woodstock Country Club. This traditional course features twisting fairways, challenging shots, and gorgeous ponds. Woodstock has the 18th best golf course conditions, according to Golf Advisor.

Okemo Valley Golf Club

The Okemo Valley Golf Club in nearby Ludlow has stunning Okemo Mountain views from nearly every angle of the course. Okemo Valley has towering tee shots, wide fairways, rolling hills, and natural ponds. This course is a cross between an English links-style course and a traditional U.S. parkland course. This heathland-style gem features challenging mounds, tall rough, and wavy greens. Okemo Valley has won many prestigious awards including the best public golf course in Vermont, according to Golf Digest.

Three Distinct Lift Options

The Killington Mountain Bike Park is home to three lifts with very different destinations. The Snowshed lift shuttles beginners and intermediate riders looking for easy-going dirt roads. Most riders use these trails to get the blood pumping before challenging themselves on the rugged single tracks. The Ramshead lift will take you to their signature freestyle trails for mid-level and advanced riders. Ramshead has spectacular jump trails and a Pro GRT downhill course. For the toughest, most thrilling trails in Vermont, trek up to Killington Peak. These trails are lengthy, steep, and winding.

Push Yourself with These Trails

If you’re skilled enough to brave Killington Peak, we suggest the “Off the Top” trail because it’s the lengthiest route on the mountain and offers breathtaking scenery and extreme challenges. “The Beast” is a snaking thrill-ride through rooty dirt and rock slabs. “Black Magic” at Ramshead is speedy, exhilarating, and has a lot of available airtime.
