An exciting season ahead for two of the northeast’s favorite golf spots
Carrier explains that due to COVID golf has seen an influx of new players coming to enjoy the sport and Birch Hills has the perfect course for all skill levels.
“There are no sand traps to get stuck in just a few grass bunkers and some water. It’s a nice nice nine hole.
Birch Hills is holding its annual general meeting on April 4 in hopes of recruiting two new board members to help make the upcoming season more exciting for golfers.
Tenyll Cook, general manager of St. Brieux Regional Park and Golf Course, said it was a landmark year for the golf course.
“It’s the park’s 50th anniversary this year. So we’re going to be celebrating that all August.
The weekend will have a mini golf tournament and other family events.
Father’s Day weekend will also be one for the books as there will be a golf tournament with all proceeds going to prostate cancer awareness.
Yoga in the park, a farmers market and additional swimming lessons will be offered for those who prefer to sit on the links.
Cook explained that the snow we currently have on the ground is a blessing in disguise.
“Last year because it was so dry we unfortunately had a fire ban for most of the summer so hopefully with the humidity we are getting this year it will help eliminate that this year.
Neither golf course has set an opening day yet as it depends on the weather, but the opening date for St. Brieux Regional Park is set for May 20.
