“If you’ve ever had a hankering to learn a new sport, then you are in just the right place,” said Myra Foster in an article called, “Summer Schools” in Stratton Magazine.
She attended Stratton Summer Resort and Stratton’s Golf School. She said, “When a round of golf stirs up more stress than a day in the office, it’s time to seek professional help. I’ve played for years, but with neither patience to practice nor time for lessons, I hack along with just enough great shots to keep me coming back for more. This summer I decide to shoot for consistency, which leads me to the Stratton Golf School, for there I will find a better game “guaranteed!” According to the website anyway.
Before I am even out of the car, a crisply dressed pro appears to collect my golf bag. I head into the classroom and start reviewing our syllabus. We’ll rotate through four stations each day, from full swing to putting, chipping/pitching and trouble shots…
The welcome remarks begin. “While you are here, you can expect to hit between 400 and 500 golf balls, which exceeds the average 18-hole round by a few strokes…or maybe not.” The instructors introduce themselves in a light-hearted banter that borders on stand-up comedy.”
Stratton Summer Resort also has spas, beautiful hotel accommodations, tennis school, fly fishing school, shooting school, falconry, and many more fun options.
Stratton is only one of the many Vermont summer attractions.
