The Brighton Dale Links Blue Spruce course and Petrifying Springs Golf Course will open for play on Saturday, March 17, 2018, Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser announced today.
The White Birch and Red Pine courses and the practice range at Brighton Dale Links will open as soon as weather and course conditions permit.
“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 player benefits in place for golf course guests to enjoy.
“With all the improvements that have been made in the last several of years to the irrigation systems, cart paths, equipment and food service areas, we are really anticipating a great season,” Drier said.
Daily fees and season passes are available with additional options including unlimited golf, twilight, senior and junior rates. For the start of the season, hours of operation for both courses will be from 10 a.m. to dusk seven days a week until further notice with the weather permitting.
