Kenosha County’s Brighton Dale Links and Petrifying Springs Golf Course will open for the season, on Monday (March 27), County Executive Samantha Kerkman announced on Friday.
Regardless of weather conditions, the course clubhouses will be open for season pass and merchandise sales, with play beginning as soon as conditions allow, Kerkman said.
“It’s seemed like a long winter, but spring is here and golf season is back,” Kerkman said. “I encourage golfers to get out, get some fresh air, and check out our great Kenosha County courses.”
Dan Drier, PGA Professional and General Manager of Golf Operations for Kenosha County, said there are tremendous opportunities to create memories with friends and family at fantastic golf courses in beautiful natural surroundings.
“We have had much of the underbrush in the wooded areas removed throughout the golf courses,” Drier said. “We are excited to have golfers enjoy the fun, fitness, and camaraderie from their experience! We are very proud of our golf courses and look forward to our guests playing them soon.”
For the start of the season, hours of operation for both courses will be from 8 a.m. to dusk, seven days a week, weather permitting. As the weather gets warmer, the courses will open earlier.
Due to saturated conditions on the courses, the season will begin with a requirement that carts must remain on cart paths only. This will be strictly enforced. Violators will be required to walk the rest of their round, with no refunds offered.
To open up the season at Brighton Dale Links, there will be a Spring Scramble on Saturday, April 22. This is a 4-person, 18-hole scramble with prizes valued at over $6,000. The entry fee is just $70 per player. This includes greens fee, cart, boxed lunch and big prizes including a foursome winning a 2023 Adult Value Package.
For seniors, Brighton Dale will host its Senior Scramble on Friday, April 28. This is also a 4-person, 18-hole scramble that has prizes valued over $3,000 and costs only $60 per player. This fee also includes greens fee, cart, boxed lunch, and prizes.
