****** Important notice*******
Schedules for our GET GOLF READY adult instruction programs will be promulgated within the few weeks. JUNIOR GOLF CAMPS as well. Check the website every now and then to get the scoop.
The fall education series of lectures went off quite well despite some weather issues. We will continue these efforts in the spring. If you have some topics you think would be interesting let us know and we'll see what we can do to present them. We're already working on interesting topics to offer for our 2015 Information Series. If you have expertise on a particular topic and want to share your knowledge let us know!!
Check out the progress on the walking/fitness trail which you can access along the tree line midway up hole #8 and will eventually wind around the entire golf course......the trail will be enjoyed by hikers, snow shoe enthusiasts and cross country skiers year round.
Hikers and snowshoers are welcome to use the course in the off season. We ask you to stay off the greens and be mindful of you dogs.
League Golfers....contact me to set up your leagues.....We've got BEER and WINE...and the perfect venue for real golf which doesn't take forever.....take your pick of evenings or days but they won't last so make your selections now!!
Corporate Golf Outings....Colonial Acres Golf Club is the perfect venue for Team Building Golf Outings....close to downtown Albany, NY.....we offer anything you need for your customers and employees. Enjoy our course and then enjoy the deck overlooking the pond while quaffing an adult beverage. We can put together customized golf outings to include golf, instruction, food and beverage, tournaments or fund raising events.
EXTRA...EXTRA....READ ALL ABOUT IT!! Colonial Acres Golf Club has been selected the Best Facility For Player Development by the NENY PGA Section.
Spring (despite what you see out your window) is just weeks away and it's time to start thinking about golf......your golf....not the golf you've been watching on TV while itching to get out there yourself......make this the best golfing year you've ever had....take some lessons, sign up for tournaments, join a league.
Disc Golf......the course has been set up and is ready to play.....we will tweak it for a bit before we set the permanent tee and basket placements so if you want input you need to get out here and play it!! So far the reports are very favorable. We sell and rent the discs in the shop. Fees are $5 for nine holes.....So far the interplay between ball and disc golfers has been trouble free which no complaints from either group and it looks like this experiment is going to work.
Two projects remain to complete our vision for CAGC and both are tracking. We have had plans drawn for a new clubhouse and are working to have that funded. We've also been investigating the routing for the Nature/Fitness trail to go around the perimeter of the course. Work on the fitness/nature trail began on 23 July. This stuff takes time but I'm confident we can get it done. If anyone wants to throw a couple hundred thousand dollars our way it would really speed up the process!!
Meetings have been and continue to be held to formulate our funding plan for the new clubhouse....it's going to happen. I'm reasonably confident that we will be in the clubhouse sometime during the 2015 golfing season.
Check out the calender section. Dates for our instruction programs are posted. Size of classes are limited so sign up soon so you guarantee yourself the class you want.
Every Wednesday evening at 5:30 I will be on the first tee.....anyone wants to play with me be there.....we'll pick some teams and shoot it out....a small wagering game.....fun...competitive....fun. The game has moved up a half hour to allow for earlier darkness and that trend will continue as time goes on.
