LINCROFT – Golfers are crossing their fingers and hoping for mild weather to continue playing the sport they love this winter.
The Monmouth County Park System is keeping two of its golf courses open for play this winter – Bel-Aire Golf Course in Wall and Charleston Springs Golf Course in Millstone.
Golfers were able to tee off on Bel-Aire’s 18-hole course beginning Jan. 1 and on Charleston Springs’ South Course they started Jan. 2. Other county courses may open before the official start of the 2013 golf season if conditions permit.
The cost for a round of winter golf at Bel-Aire will be $20 for adults with $15 matinee rates starting at 1 p.m. and seniors (age 65 and older) paying $14, and juniors (age 20 and younger) $13. Charleston Springs Golf Course will use its 2012 matinee rates.
Applicable cart fees will be charged.
Weather-permitting, courses are open daily from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Both reserved tee times and walk-on play will be available.
The tee time reservation system is available to those with golf cards. Golfers looking to purchase a golf card may do so at both courses. All cards will be sold at 2012 rates until 2013 rates are established.
