CREEK UPDATE: Season kicks off with stretch of unseasonably warm weather

It felt like June, but the calendar said early-April.

The 2017 golf season is officially underway at Silver Creek Golf Club.

It might not have snowed much this winter, but the rain has come fast and furiously so far this month. The course has dried out nicely, though, and we are open for business!

Since the warmer, spring air has made it’s way into the Finger Lakes — golfers have been coming out and asking us two questions:

  1. Are you allowing carts out onto the course; and
  2. Is the course being mowed yet?

The simple answer: ABSOLUTELY!

The carts are rolling and the course is drying out quickly with the mild temperatures and plentiful sun. Play has also been picking up with the warmer temperatures, so as always, we advise anyone interested in checking out Silver Creek Golf Club — to call the pro shop to book a tee time.

Even with the showers on Saturday — it’s still surprisingly dry on the course thanks to the tireless work of our grounds crew led by Superintendent Paul Clark.

April is halfway over, so that means it’s time to take advantage of season memberships, which offers a savings for those golfers who play more than two times a week!

Click here to learn more about our memberships. You can even print out a membership sheet here, and bring it into the pro shop to save time!

We will also be updating our course calendar throughout the season. Check on that throughout the year to see if there are any events taking place that catch your eye! We host dozens of events and tournaments throughout the season.

As always, we’ll be updating the Silver Creek Facebook Page daily with course news, information, and all of the things you need to stay on top of what’s happening at Silver Creek. We’ll also be posting some interactive content throughout the season there, which won’t be shared here — so get over to our page and hit the like button!

We are also gauging interest in some member, member-guest, or mixed member tournaments this year. Let us know what you’d like to see this year in the comments on Facebook.

As part of the 2017 edition of the Creek Update, we’ll be providing highlights from the course during the week; as well as providing a forecast for what golfers can expect to see the following week for events, tournaments, and much more.

Don’t forget at the bottom of our homepage, you can see up-to-the-minute weather at Silver Creek. As well as a short term outlook for what the weather will be doing at the course.
