Tomah Veterans Affairs Golf Course open for the season

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in Tomah announces its “Veterans’ Golf Course” is open for the season. The public is welcome to play the nine-hole course.

The Veterans’ Golf Course is a non-profit course with the primary purpose to provide a golf facility for veterans receiving care at the Tomah VA. Funds generated from public play and donations provide the means to operate and maintain the course. For more than 10 years, the golf course has not received funding from the VA Medical Center budget.

Course fees for the general public are $9 for a nine-hole round ($10 on weekends and holidays). Senior citizens, active-duty military and students receive a special rate of $7 on both weekdays and weekends for nine holes. An 18-hole round costs $16 ($17 on weekends and holidays).

The course will be open from sun-up to sun-down, weather permitting. For the next month or so, spring rules apply. When the flags are on the greens, the course is open for play.

Golfers who arrive when the pro shop is not open are asked to abide by the honor system and deposit their green fee in the honor box located at the starter building. Volunteer schedules may be sporadic during the first month of the season, so players are asked to be prepared to use the honor box.

Tee times will be available, as well as cart, club and pull-cart rentals, when the pro shop is manned by volunteers. For more information, call 608-372-1243.

A season pass for the 2011 season is available for $200.

The Veterans’ Golf Course pro shop is operated by VA volunteers. For more information, call VA Voluntary Services at 608-372-1727.
