Malone Golf Club to offer free golf

As all of you know – or should know by now – Sunday is Mother’s Day, a special day of the year to honor the person who brought you into this world, and normally one of the busier days of the golfing season for employees at the Malone Golf Club.

However, due to the restraints that the COVID-19 pandemic has created, MGC will not be offering its popular Mother’s Day Buffet, but instead, will offer free golf to anyone on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (May 11-13).

“In celebration of Mother’s Day on Sunday, we are stretching it out to let everyone who enjoys playing golf play at Malone Golf Club for free on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. That’s right, free golf on our wonderfully manicured guest course all three days,” stated Malone Golf Club General Manager Tom Siddon. “All you have to do is call the Pro Shop at 518-483-2926 for details, or go to the Malone Golf Club’s webpage, create your own account and book online.”

“Tee times are required and are available up to one week in advance, just as if you called us,” Siddon added.

Malone Golf Club President Arlie Collins added that any and all golfers taking advantage of the local links must abide by the social distancing standards that have been mandated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office.

“First of all, I would like to thank all of our members for making our first full week of opening successful. We had several individuals join the club for the first time and we welcome them aboard and thank them for joining what we feel is the best golf facility in northern New York,” Collins began.

“Just a friendly reminder to everyone to please continue following the rules set forth by Gov. Cuomo’s office in regards to social distancing. This means staying 6 feet apart,” Collins continued. “Please do not put the club in a situation where you will be asked to leave for not following these rules.”

Collins went on to point out that several patrons have inquired as to when carts will be made available.

“The short answer to this question is as soon as we are allowed to use them, they will be available,” said Collins. “We keep hoping everyday that a directive will be released giving us the go-ahead and we are hoping that day is coming soon.

“There will also be strict protocol we will have to follow on cart usage, but more on that once carts are allowed,” Collins added. “In closing, thank you for all of your continued support as we navigate through these challenging times. Please continue to follow the rules, stay healthy and enjoy our beautiful courses.”
