Before ! Opening of golf courses in the city of Syracuse in May

(WSYR-TV) – Golfers in central New York can “grab and rip” starting this Sunday.

On May 1, the City of Syracuse Department of Parks, Recreation and Youth Programs will open its two nine-hole, par-3 golf courses.

Burnet Park will open on Sunday May 1, while Sunnycrest Park will open two weeks later on Sunday May 15. Golf leagues, clinics and tournaments will begin at the end of May.

Season passes for 2022 are available for purchase in line. Season passes entitle members to unlimited green fees on both courses, subject to course availability. The fees for season passes are:

  • Adults (18-54) – $100
  • Juniors (6-17) – $40.
  • Seniors (55+) – $40
  • Non-city residents will need to pay an additional $25. Season passes entitle you to unlimited play rights.

Footgolf, which is like regular golf but you hit a soccer ball on the course and into a hole, at Sunnycrest Golf Course will begin on June 15. Footgolf hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
