County Executive Adam Bello today announced the return of golf at Monroe County’s three public golf courses. Beginning Tuesday, April 12th, the courses at Durand Eastman, Genesee Valley and Churchville will open for the 2022 golf season.

“Monroe County’s affordable and accessible public golf courses add to the tremendous quality of life for our residents to enjoy in the warmer months ahead,” said County Executive Bello. “And, new this year — we eliminated the $30 purchase fee for season permits providing discounted green fees for our seniors, military, youth, and disabled golfers. Whether you’ve played your whole life, or have never swung a club, all are welcome to come out and shoot a round at one of our three public courses throughout the county.”

Tee times are open to the public and may be booked online at Though courses will not yet be open, pro shop access will be available Monday, April 11th, 8:30 am- 4:30 pm for booking tee times and purchasing season passes.

Free permits for discounted green fees throughout the season are available for seniors over 62, active military, veterans, youth under 17 and golfers with a physician-certified disability. Qualifying residents can apply for a free permit at any pro shop at each of the three county courses.

Due to the wet conditions of spring, Durand Eastman, Genesee Valley and Churchville courses will be walking-only initially. Carts will be offered once the area experiences a longer stretch of improved weather to dry out conditions. Driving ranges will be opening as conditions permit.
