We have another sign that summer is approaching as it’s time to tee off in Endicott.
En-Joie Golf Course has officially opened for the 2019 season.
A group of elected officials brought in the new golf season with a friendly putting competition.
En-Joie Director of Golf Michael Deuel says it’s an extremely exciting time of the year.
He says maintenance of the course is a year-long job but over the last 3 weeks they’ve really ramped up cleaning debris and trimming the grass to have it ready for players.
“It actually was a little harder this winter. It came in the middle of November and lasted until just last week it snowed last Friday. So it’s been a little tougher but the golf course has really responded. Like I said it’s in great shape right now already,” Deuel says.
Deuel says despite the heavy flooding the course experienced during the Dick’s Open Week last year there has been no lasting impact.
Golfers can “play where the pros play” by calling 607-785-1661 to set up a tee time.
