On Sun., Feb. 25, from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m., The Landmark Trust USA invites the public to its 2nd Annual Snow Golf: Chip, Drive, & Putt for Preservation. The event will once again be held at Scott Farm, 707 Kipling Rd., Dummerston, Vt and is an official part of Brattleboro Winter Carnival. Tickets for this fundraising event are $35, and advance registration is suggested.
The LTUSA is a nonprofit historic preservation organization that has beautifully restored Naulakha, the 1892 Dummerston home of author Rudyard Kipling, and four other Southern Vermont properties, which it owns and operates as overnight vacation rentals. According to the U.S. Golf Association, Kipling invented Snow Golf at Naulakha following his introduction to the game by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle of Sherlock Holmes fame.
New this year, the course will be designed in partnership with the Brattleboro Country Club and feature six skills challenges – including Chipping Skeeball, Tic-Tac-Toe, and Blindfolded Pick-A-Club – as well as one hole and a bonus “closest to the pin” shot. Players may register individually or as a team of four, and prizes will be awarded for best overall score, best score on each challenge, best dressed, and more. All tickets include a free exclusive hard or sweet cider drink from the Scott Farm pop-up bar. Additional snacks and drinks will be provided as well.

All proceeds from the event support the historic preservation work of The Landmark Trust USA, helping maintain the nonprofit’s beautiful historic properties, produce place-based educational programs, and save additional historic buildings.
