Saturday, July 20, 2019 - 8:40 am

OGDENSBURG -- Links at the St. Lawrence State Park will be open free to young people aged 18 and under on today, July 20, as part of the state’s Junior Golf Day.

Meant to encourage more young people to enjoy golf, the program offers a free, 18-hole round to state residents who are 18 years old or less.

The youth program does not guarantee a tee-time, so participants are urged to contact the appropriate golf course in advance to make a reservation. Online information on locating a course, as well as program terms and conditions, can be found at https://parks.ny.gov/golf/

Most state parks have a four- to seven-day window for accepting reservations. Walk-ins are also welcomed, based on availability.

As part of the event, packages of State Park’s themed golf tees will be available as giveaways to participants. The program does not include a cart, range balls, or food and beverage.

Approximately 600,000 rounds of golf are played at State Park golf courses each year, bringing in an average of $17 million in annual revenue.

Links at all of the state’s 28 parks will be open for free.
