ALBANY, NY – Capital Hills Golf Course will open on Tuesday, June 16. In order to be budget neutral, greens fees will increase $10 across the board to increase revenue, and the City will dispatch a reduced number of maintenance staff to control costs and allow other vital services to continue. Golfers are urged to understand the typical level of maintenance they have become accustomed to may be impacted by this reduction in maintenance.

The golfing hours of operation are Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 7:00pm, and weekends and holidays 7:00am to 7:00pm. Walkers are welcome to continue using the course when golf isn’t occurring otherwise.

The following additional precautions that are consistent with guidance established by Empire State Development and operational guidance will be followed to ensure proper social distancing and cleanliness protocols due to the COVID-19 outbreak: 
  • Carts will be available but according to New York State guidelines only allow one rider per cart, unless they reside in the same household. 
  • Drinking water, ball washers, and bunker rakes will not be provided on the golf course to comply with NYS COVID-19 guidance.
