Falcon Ridge Golf Course sparked the start of its season this week when the track green-lighted hitting off mats at the practice range.
Next on the agenda is expected to be the opening of the nine-hole Raceview executive layout sometime toward or on the weekend.
Soon after, no doubt, it will be game-on for the 18-hole championship course.
When players land at Falcon Ridge in 2014, they’ll discover new attractions.
“We have launched a new website that makes it easier for golfers to securely book rounds online,” says Steve Spratt, Falcon Ridge’s general manager. “And they can register for leagues and make all of their purchases, such as gift cards. ”
Another fresh feature is for intermediate golfers, those ages 18 to 30, who can tee off on weekends after 2 p.m. for the price of their age on the day they play. Proper ID is required.
Birthday boys and girls of all ages are now eligible for free rounds on their special days with the rental of a power cart. For players whose birthdays happen during the offseason, the course offers two-for-one screen fees for games on its High Definition Golf simulators.
Junior golfers under the age of 16 can play Falcon Ridge for free on both Saturday and Sunday with one paying adult. In addition, there are discounted rates for juniors before 4 p.m. from Mondays through Thursdays.
Spratt added that he is looking for player assistants and marshals. Interested individuals are asked to contact him directly for details.
Falcon Ridge's championship layout plays to par 72. There are four sets of tee boxes measuring from 5,383 yards to 6,945 yards.
Raceview plays to par 35 and has two sets of tee boxes measuring from 2,158 yards to 2,563 yards.
The semi-private facility is located off Albion Road at 4740 High Rd., across from the Rideau-Carleton Entertainment Centre.
