Capital Hills will again host the Fuccillo Kia Championship Symetra Tour event, part of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), on the weekend of July 27 to 29, 2018. This will be the sixteenth consecutive year that the LPGA will play at Capital Hills. This event draws some of the best players in the game and is a testament to the quality of our course.
 
Another draw at Capital Hills is Martel’s Restaurant, which overlooks the 9th and 18th holes, and serves brunch, lunch, and dinner (see martelsrestaurant.com for details).
 
When Capital Hills Golf Course is closed to golfing for the season, the Albany municipal golf course opens for dogs, walkers, runners, cross country skiers, snowshoers, and sledders. Walking and dog-walking will not be allowed during hours the golf course is open, except for on the Whalen Way Nature Trail.
 
During the winter, the course is like a giant (dog) park, where pups can run off leash. On the weekends there are usually a bunch of other dogs, so there's a lot of opportunity for playing. And the place itself can be beautiful, which makes for good (human) walking/snowshoeing/skiing.
 
Of course, there area a few rules/guidelines you should follow while there:
  • Please pick up after your dog.
  • Somewhere around 95 percent of the dogs at the golf course play nicely with others and are well behaved. If your dog is in that other 5 percent, please take the necessary steps to keep him in line.
  • Watch out for the small humans who are there to sled. They are not always happy that your dog wants to meet them.
  • Please drive slowly through the parking lot. There are lots of dogs and kids about.
