One of Kenosha County’s two golf facilities will close for the season this week, while the other will remain open until further notice, weather dependent.
Brighton Dale Links will be closed beginning Thursday, Nov. 8, Daniel Drier, the county’s general manager of golf operations, announced today. Petrifying Springs Golf Course will remain open unless the forecast temperature is below 40 degrees, Drier said.
A season closing date for Petrifying Springs will be announced at a future date, Drier said.
Regardless of whether the weather allows golf at Petrifying Springs, Drier encourages people to check out a holiday sale in the clubhouse, which will begin this week and continue through Dec. 23.
Hours for the sale are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays, in addition to the hours that the golf course will be open. All merchandise from both facilities’ clubhouses will be on sale at Petrifying Springs, and gift cards for next season will be available for purchase.
This golf season comes to a close as Kenosha County’s courses received top honors in the Kenosha News’ 2018 Best of Kenosha County awards, which were announced Sunday. Petrifying Springs was voted first place in the Golf Course category, while Brighton Dale Links came in second.
“Thank you all for an incredible season,” Drier said. “It is quite an honor to be voted Best of Kenosha for both Petrifying Springs Golf Course and Brighton Dale links for 2018. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2019 to experience the restoration of the White Birch sand traps and green surrounds at Brighton Dale.”
The county courses typically open for the season in March, weather permitting.
