MALONE — The Malone Golf Club will open this week. The golf course off of County Route 25 opens to members on Thursday and Friday, before it opens to the general public on Saturday.
According to Arlie Collins, the club’s president, the golf club is looking forward to getting underway, and having golfers out on the course.
“We are excited to welcome people back, and to offer them an activity they can enjoy outside,” Collins said.
Collins said golfers can start making tee times Wednesday morning and can do so by visiting the club’s website at malonegolfclub.com or by calling the pro shop at 518-483-2926.
The course itself looks good following the past winter, according to Collins.
“The course came through the winter in tremendous shape,” Collins said.
According to Collins, early April is usually when the golf course aims to open in the spring, though last year the course opened later in the month due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is traditionally when we hope to be open by,” Collins said.
Collins said the course will continue to follow the state’s COVID guidelines this season, urging golfers to socially distance while on the course, and adding masks will be required when visitors to the club are inside the clubhouse or the pro shop.
“We will be open based on the guidance we receive from the state,” Collins said.
Additional measure will include no sand rakes in the bunkers, and no water stations out on the course, according to Collins.
Collins said the golf club will be running a promotion throughout the month, offering 18 holes of golf, with a cart to golfers for $45.
Additionally, Collins said the golf club will be hosting a work day on Saturday, April 24, where volunteers can come out and help get the course ready for summer and clean up any limbs or branches that came down during the winter months.
