We received the picture above (click to enlarge) of James H. Hunter receiving the VGA Amateur Championship trophy (we believe) in either 1949 or 1952. If anyone can provide more information on this photo - i.e. names of the other two gentlemen pictured, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
In order to play in the majority of VGA sponsored events or any New England area regional or state event, you must have a valid, updated GHIN handicap!
In order to participate in the majority of VGA tournaments, players are required to have a valid, active GHIN handicap. Handicaps are updated twice a month - on the 1st and 15th. Although your home course may activate you on a given day, your handicap won't become active in the GHIN system until the next revision period on the 1st or 15th - the next one immediately following the day you are activated at your club. Please be aware of this when planning your summer golf schedule.
Handicap activation is done by your home club - the VGA does not activate handicaps!
Please plan accordingly!
If you don’t have a handicap and would like to learn more about establishing one, click here.
The Golf & Ski Fall Series will run during State Day events in August and September. The top 1/3 of the players in the field will earn points in each event based on their net scores. If there are 60 players in the field the top 20 will earn points with 20 points to first place, 19 points for 2nd and so on. 90 players in an event will result in 30 players earning points Ties will be decided by a match of cards.
The prizes will be awarded at the culmination of the series based on the total accumulated points earned by a player in all the Fall Series events as he plays in. The prizes will be in the form of gift cards from our sponsor Golf & Ski Warehouse.
All VGA Members!

No matter the season - spring, summer or autumn, golf in Vermont is always spectacular. From quiet meadows to spectacular mountain views, every round will delight the senses!
