Western Turnpike Golf Course

Winter Updates

The third White tee is completely clear!

The recent brief warmup allowed our maintenance crew to get outside and continue their work trimming trees along fairways on the Red Course. Protruding limbs on 2 and 6 Red were trimmed back to open up shots along the fairways. We've also continued our program of trimming up the lower branches on Spruce trees along 4 and 5 Red fariways as well. Stay warm and think Spring!!

The seventh Blue tee still has a little snow coverage

Please visit the website over the winter to check in on updates and improvements to the golf course.

The 2018 golf membership early bird special ended on December 31, 2017. Regular 2018 memberships are still available.  Payment can be made at the Guilderland Parks & Recreation office, 181 Route 146 (across from Tawasentha Park) or when the course opens in the Spring of 2018.

We will look forward to seeing everyone in the spring.
