Auburn Golf Course gears up for a hot 2013 season

Golf CourseThe Auburn Golf Course announces its 2013 program that includes a new Executive Ladies Club and a new Stay and Play program in partnership with two area hotels.

The Course is also holding a March membership drive (PDF) for its Men's and Ladies Clubs and the new Executive Ladies Club (PDF). Members of all three clubs will receive member benefits that include advance tee-time bookings, discounts on green fees, a free round of golf, GHIN handicap, access to competitions and tournaments and discounts at Copper Falls Restaurant. But new members signing up in the month of March will also receive an extra round of golf as an added incentive.

The March Membership drive is open to all players joining any of the three clubs at Auburn Golf Course. The new Executive Ladies Club is geared to women golfers who want to grab a quick 9-holes after work. The Club will play Thursday evenings from May to August. The membership fee is $70 with $10 green fees.

Daily players can also find great deals at Auburn Golf Course by joining the online E-Club. Go to www.auburngolfcourse.org and sign up to receive e-specials, discounted rounds of golf that are offered through email. The Auburn Golf Course Player’s Card is another way to get discounts at the course-including a free round during your birthday month each year. The 2013 Player’s Card cost $65 and is good for $5 discounts off regular 18-hole green fees and $3 discounts off 9-hole, early bird and twilight green fees all season long. The card also allows for discounted 18-hole power cart fees during peak season and the privilege of making 14 day advance tee-time bookings. Player’s Card holders also receive discounts at Copper Falls Restaurant. Purchase Player’s Cards online or by calling the pro shop.

The Auburn Golf Course also offers various leagues during the season. The Merchant’s League begins April 29th and runs through August. This league was originally designed to be a social and networking opportunity for area businesses, but any golfer who would like to form a team is welcome to join. Other leagues available at AGC include the Friday night Couples League and the Summer Fun league.

A brand new partnership with area hotels will promote Auburn Golf Course in the tourism market. The Best Western Plus Peppertree Inn of Auburn and the Holiday Inn & Suites in Kent will sell “Stay and Play” packages to their guests that include golf at Auburn Golf Course as well as other area activities. The stay and play packages will be sold from March to the end of October.

“The locals know that our golf course is one of the best municipal courses in the area,” said Glenda Carino, City of Auburn Marketing Manager. “Our hotel partners will be promoting the course to travelers coming to the area for business or to visit friends and relatives."

The Auburn Golf Course is also a popular place to hold tournaments for groups and organizations throughout the South Sound. “We’ve probably booked 80 to 100 tournaments already,” said Chris Morris, Auburn's Golf Pro. A sample of the groups holding events at Auburn this season include Seattle Tacoma Box, Highline High School Alumni Association, Puget Sound Energy and Holland America Cruise Lines. Morris says there are a few weekends open in May, June and late September. Call the pro shop if you'd like to schedule a tournament. Morris and his crew are also available to help organize tournaments.
