Local golfers now have additional opportunities to purchase season passes for Erie County’s two public golf courses. Due to overwhelming demand for opportunities to apply for season passes in person, the Erie County Department of Parks, Recreation & Forestry has announced six additional dates for county residents who want to play golf at either Grover Cleveland or Elma Meadows.
“Spring is here and we know there are thousands of golfers who are ready to get back into the swing of things at both of Erie County’s public golf courses,” said Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz. “Golfing at either Grover Cleveland or Elma Meadows is an enjoyable way for anyone who wants to get some exercise and enjoy challenging holes that golfers of all skill levels should be able to appreciate. Purchasing a season pass is a great way for a golfer to play as many rounds as they would like. I encourage any resident to take advantage of these additional dates to get their application processed.”
The additional dates for golf pass processing are:
• Saturday, April 15 at Elma Meadows, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
• Monday, April 17 at Elma Meadows, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Tuesday, April 18 at Elma Meadows, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Saturday, April 22 at Grover Cleveland, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
• Monday, April 24 at Grover Cleveland, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Tuesday, April 25 at Grover Cleveland, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Our employees have been hard at work getting the two courses ready for what we hope will be a great year of golf and these new dates to have your season passes processed will allow personnel at Grover Cleveland and Elma Meadows to provide top-notch customer service,” said Parks Commissioner Daniel J. Rizzo.
In addition to these additional dates for golf pass processing, golf permit applications for 2017 are also available online and offer regular passes as well as senior citizen (62 or over) and youth (16 years of age or younger) passes. Golfers who did not have a pass last year must apply in person at either course in order to have their photograph taken for their pass or visit the Erie County Department of Parks, Recreation & Forestry office (Room 1260, Edward A. Rath County Office Building.) All golf season passes, which are good for the entire 2017 season, are non-refundable.
