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.
