Breckenridge Golf Course opens Friday

This is the notification you have been waiting for –the golf course will open this Thursday for the Little Red Schoolhouse benefit and then open to the public on Friday. It has been quite an adventure for the maintenance crew getting the course ready for your arrival.
Piles of snow will still exist on some edges reminding us of the winter and spring we have endured. You will find some wet spots in fairways, you will find winter damage in some fairways and you will find the greens in great shape. Conditions are improving daily as we finally have had some warm, sunny days.
The conditions will warrant keeping carts on paths for all golfers for an extended period this June. Winter rules in your own fairway are suggested for players and that will be the rule for the first two Ladies’ and Men’s Club events. The first events of the season are scheduled for June 7th, for the Ladies’ and June 8th, for the Men.
Other events that occur in early June include; a free clinic for Youth golfers Saturday, June 4, from 9-10:30. Please pre-register by phoning 970-453-9104. The first Mixed Couples event of the season will be held on Saturday, June 11, with tee times starting at 1pm. All mixed couples events this year are 18-hole events. We have merged our Beginners Only and Ladies Night Out programming into Ladies’ Only. The first Ladies’ Only block of tee times is slated for Wednesday, June 8 with tee times starting at 9:30am.  Group lesson clinics start next Tuesday for adults and youth golfers. 
There are three shotgun events that will limit public tee times. These dates are Friday, June 10, Sunday June 12, and Monday June 13. Please plan your golf schedule accordingly. Tee times for 18-hole play on these days will begin at 1:40. Nine-hole play will be available starting at 11am.
The practice range and putting greens are currently open. Come on out and get you game ready for the course.
If you haven’t yet purchased your punch card for the season, please make sure you allow ample time at the clubhouse for processing before your first round on the course.
