Watertown Golf Club in Thompson Park opens May 1; Season passes available

News release

WATERTOWN, NY —  The Watertown Golf Club, Thompson Park, will be opening for the 2022 golf season: weather dependent – May 1st.

Michael Lundy, President of the Watertown Golf Club, commented on the opening and some exciting changes. “There has been a great deal of conversation and speculation regarding the Watertown Golf Club in recent months. We are pleased to announce we will be opening beginning in May with some new features that we think will attract even more people to golf at our beautiful course.” Mr. Lundy announced, “The Club will be going public!”

According to Mr. Lundy, the Club’s membership structure has been reorganized to eliminate “Memberships” and now will offer “Season Passes”. The season passes will be offered at a very competitive rate of $695 for the 2022 season. “Although we have been open to the public officially before, there was always a membership structure in place, and it made it seem like it was a private club. That really is an outdated concept for this Club. Now, anyone who wishes to purchase a season pass can do so and have access to golf for the entire season. We feel this will be great for our previous members, and also attract new golfers who want to play the Park on a regular basis.” Mr. Lundy did note that they will cap the number of season passes at 200.

In addition, public play for individual rounds will still be available. Amenities such as a new fleet of electric golf carts, driving range, light food and beverages will continue to be offered to golfers or the general public who just want to come to Thompson Park. “Golfing at The Park is a wonderful experience, and we want to make it more available to the public – for those who like to golf frequently, or for those who may just play a single round with family and friends.” He added, “Tournaments are always welcome, and a large number have been booked already. The course will still require Tee Times for rounds of golf, which allow for proper spacing and number of golfers on the course, making it a smooth, fun round of golf.”

Mr. Lundy also recognized that parking has become a very talked about issue regarding the Club. He commented briefly. “It is our intention to work towards a resolution on the parking issues created by the Watertown City Council. We are considering several options.”
