Families to receive Memorial Day weekend discount through Metro Parks Golf
Friday May 20, 2011
In order to encourage local families to visit their municipally-owned golf courses, Metro Parks is offering an affordable family golfing package at its nine golf courses during the Memorial Day Weekend for the fourth consecutive year.
For only $20, a family of up to four members can play nine holes at any Metro Parks course. The $20 includes greens and cart fees, and families can take advantage of the deal after 4:30 p.m. on three days: Saturday, May 28, Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30.
“This is an inexpensive way for parents to introduce their kids to the game of golf,” said Metro Parks Director Mike Heitz. “Families spend a lot of time together during Memorial Day weekend, and there’s no better place to do that than at one of our great public courses.”
While at the Metro Parks courses, families are encouraged to sign up for the Grand Slam Golf Giveaway, which will be in its final weekend. At the conclusion of the month, each course will be giving out great prizes based on those drawings.
Metro Parks golf courses are open from daylight to dark seven days a week, and each course has a fully stocked pro shop. Private lessons are available from a PGA Professional at each clubhouse. Metro Parks operates 9-hole golf courses in Cherokee Park and Crescent Hill Park, along with Waverly Park’s Bobby Nichols Golf Course. There are 18-hole courses in Iroquois Park, Long Run Park, Seneca Park, Shawnee Park, Sun Valley Park and Charlie Vettiner Park. The courses at Long Run and Shawnee also host the three-hole First Tee Golf Academy for youth golf. For more information, call (502) 456-8134 or visit http://www.louisvilleky.gov/MetroParks/golf.
