Due to new guidance issued by New York State. the Barney Road Golf Course will re-open on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 10:00 AM for the 2020 season with previously instituted COVID-19 safety measures.
In order to reduce personal interaction between golfers and staff, golfers are being directed to pre-pay their greens fees prior to their arrival at the course. Golfers can go to www.cliftonpark.org where there will be a link to direct them where to pay with instructions.
Upon arriving at the course, golfers will be directed by signs where to drop off their greens fee receipt. There will be a receptacle to leave online receipts and checks by the side window of the starter’s shack. If they did not prepay, they will have an opportunity to write a check and drop it off in the collection basket. Golfers will be reminded to wait their turn to the first tee in six feet intervals which will be marked on pathway.
