Colonial Acres Golf Club & Learning Center
Well we're up and running. Going to mow the greens on Friday after they've dried out a bit and I may get some mowers on the fairways tomorrow. Plenty of golfers have played already and I anticipate a wonderful Easter weekend,
We are offering a free golf towel or pair of sun glasses if you pay full fare for a season pass.
I'll start giving lessons very soon so if you think you need some tuning up or are just starting out let's get you on the schedule.
An annual golf pass would make a wonderful Mother's Day, Father's Day or Easter Gift. Email me for details or stop in to see me next week.
I'm really hoping we can get better participation for the Thursday morning Ladies Golf League (I'll run it anyway you want) Also would like to see a men's league (Seniors). I expect to work with the Bethlehem YMCA and work together to provide any programming they desire.
I will also be teaching some Get Golf Ready Adult Group Golf lessons this spring so be on the look out for those annoucements.
Would like to see more play for our Wednesday evening skins game and perhaps start an 18 hole game on Sundays. Let me know your thoughts.

We are striving for a more comprehensive and fun tournament schedule next year. Ideally we'll have a tournament committee of interested members who will put the package together. Those interested contact us and let's do this.
You do not need a tee time to play at CAGC. In fact you may pay more if you book it online.
Footgolf has been a huge success and we want to thank everyone who has come to try it out. Just so you know, the footgolf course is open whenever the golf course is open. You play right amongst the golfers. Please bring your own balls, no soccor shoes please. I would suggest you Google footgolf so you have an idea how to play the game. Here, you play from the regular golf tees and kick to the orange flags which have 21" cups. The rules are very similar to golf and particularly the rules about etiquette. Rates for footgolf this season will be $8.
You may contact me anytime at
WE NEED SPONSORS!!
The walking trail is open!! There are signs indicating the entrance and exit. Thanks you to Frank Slingerland for your tireless work getting the trail open. The bridges are still a work in progress but we expect them to be completed soon. The only thing left on our wish list is some fitness stations along the trail. Sponsors would be greatly appreciated for these.
Benches located on each tee are available for local businesses to advertise their business. You may select the whole bench or just half the bench. The money goes to ISC Audubon in order for them to continue their educational efforts.
We want to teach and provide golf for a wide variety of golfers....At Risk Youths, those with disabilities, Veterans, Seniors.......

Our club is the perfect blend of picturesque scenery and challenging golf without all the frou frou. For years golfers have flocked to our grounds, and we take pride in our friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

In fact, in 2000 our club even won the New York State Governor's Award for Pollution Prevention in the small business category. Other awards have included Environmental Leaders in Golf by Golf Digest for its innovative efforts to reduce the use of water, pesticides and production of waste. And in 2006, Colonial Acres earned the Environmental Protection Agency's National Environmental Performance Track Outreach Award.
Golf instruction is now offered by Dale H. Ezyk, a PGA Golf Professional for over twenty years. Innovative lesson programs for beginners, juniors, and more advanced players are available. Dale is fun, informative and will improve your game.
Season passes are available and our every day fees can't be beat. You won't find a better conditioned golf course at these affordable prices anywhere.
