Mild Winter Brings Golfers Out to Sugar Creek

The 2017 season at Sugar Creek Golf Course kicked off to a memorable start this January due to warmer winter temperatures. Over 900 rounds of golf were played in January and February this year, more than doubling last year’s numbers during the same time period.

This number is especially impressive given the very condensed schedule that Sugar Creek operates on during the winter season, due to early sunsets making the playing time window small compared to the rest of the year.

This February also brought evidence of the public’s continued enthusiasm for the popular summer Jr. Golf Camp programs. Registration for the camps opened on February 18 and sold out to capacity within the first hour.

Sugar Creek will look to continue a successful golf season as spring weather arrives. Learn more about the course and book a tee time at www.sugarcreekgolfcourse.org.

Ice Skating Closing

Eldridge Park Lagoon Ice Skating - CLOSED

As of Thursday, March 2, 2017 – The lagoon is CLOSED and the red flag is in place.
 
Staff tests the ice in 6 locations and all 6 locations need to reach a consistent (3 day) thickness of 8 inches before we will open the lagoon for skating.
 
The lagoon at Eldridge Park is used for ice skating during the winter months. Open water presents unique challenges for an ice skating rink. Ice is unpredictable due to changes in air and water temperature, salinity, water flow, snow cover, etc. Staff documents daily inspections of the ice at the lagoon. Once the ice reaches a consistent (3 day) thickness of 8 inches a green flag will be posted and the lagoon will be open for skating.
