Kenosha County’s two golf facilities will open for play, weather permitting, this week, County Executive Jim Kreuser announced today.
Petrifying Springs Golf Course is set to open Wednesday, March 20, while Brighton Dale Links is slated to begin its season on Friday, March 22.
“We are extremely excited about the upcoming golf season,” Kreuser said. “We invite people to visit our excellent public courses.”
Dan Drier, PGA Professional and general manager of golf operations for Kenosha County, said there are many new things in place for golf course guests to enjoy.
“We have almost completed a renovation of Brighton Dale’s White Birch Course that included addressing the drainage, green surrounds and bunkers,” Drier said. “We have also had much of the underbrush in the wooded areas removed at Brighton Dale Links.”
Petrifying Springs, Drier noted, will welcome new Superintendent Ryan Retherford, who worked formerly for the acclaimed Blackwolf Run in Sheboygan.
“We are really proud of our golf courses this season and excited for our guests to play them,” Drier said.
Drier said daily fees and season passes remain the same great value as they have for the last 10 years, with additional options including unlimited golf, senior, and junior rates. New for this season, there will be the addition of state sales tax to these rates.
For the start of the season, hours of operation for both courses will be from 9 a.m. to dusk, seven days a week, weather permitting. As the weather gets warmer, the courses will open earlier.
To open up the season at Brighton Dale Links, there will be a Spring Scramble on Saturday, April 27. This is a 4-person, 18-hole scramble with prizes valued at over $4,200, and costs only $60 per player. This includes greens fee, cart, dinner and big prizes, including a chance for a foursome to win 2019 Adult Season Passes.
For seniors, the Senior Scramble will be held on Friday, May 3. This is also a 4-person, 18-hole scramble that has prizes valued over $2,600 and costs only $49 per player, which includes greens fee, cart, lunch, and prizes.
Brighton Dale Links is comprised of 45 championship golf holes. The White Birch and Blue Spruce are 18-hole, par 72 layouts that measure 7,012 and 6,687 yards, respectively. The Red Pine is a 9-hole, par 36 layout of over 3,500 yards. All 45 holes at Brighton Dale links offer distinctive variances featuring water, mature trees and hilly terrain along with well-manicured playing conditions.
Petrifying Springs Golf Course was recently voted Kenosha’s favorite golf course for the 6th straight year. Abundant trees and a rolling landscape add beauty and challenge to this delightful 18-hole, 6,000-yard golf course.
