Sugar Creek Junior Golf Program off to a Great Start!
Posted April 14, 2016 - 10:02am
The golf industry may be suffering across the country, unable to attract young golfers to the game, but Sugar Creek Golf Course is a definite exception. The summer of 2016 will be a busy one for junior golfers at Sugar Creek. Registration for junior golf programs, including golf camp, lessons, and programs, opened on February 20, 2016 and to date 400 young golfers have registered. Sugar Creek added 100 participant capacity in 2015 to accommodate more golfers and also moved to an online registration system with the goal of making registration easier and faster, with parents able to avoid long lines and hand written paperwork.
In 2010 Sugar Creek Golf Course was one of only three facilities in Illinois named a Top 100 Play Golf America facility, a recognition from the PGA of America which highlights programs for becoming leaders in growing the game of golf. That leadership continues at Sugar Creek today!
Sugar Creek Golf Course is a nine-hole course, jointly owned by the Elmhurst Park District and the Village of Villa Park, and residents of both communities receive discounted green fees. Residents can play nine holes of golf for $15 on weekdays and $17 on weekends. General Manager Dave Anderson quips, “Sugar Creek is tucked away and fun to play.” Come find out why!
Sugar Creek Golf Course is located at 500 E. Van Buren in Villa Park, IL 60181 and is open daily dawn to dusk. Visit www.sugarcreekgolfcourse.org or call (630) 834-3325 for more information.
