Enger Park and Lester Park Golf Courses to Host Open House March 28-29
(DULUTH, MN) – The City of Duluth’s Enger Park and Lester Park golf courses, now managed by Billy Casper Golf (BCG), will host an Open House from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29 at each course to provide information on season passes, league play and other golf and non-golf event opportunities.
Gary Nelson, the new General Manager, Craig Smith, Assistant General Manager, and other BCG team members will greet attendees and answer questions about the courses.
Open House guests can reserve dates for outings, tournaments and events at the two courses. Details about weekly golf leagues, which host more than 1,100 men and women, will also be available.
“We’re excited to interact with our active community,” says Nelson. “It’s an honor to manage these two historic city layouts and we are eager to engage the community with exciting programs.”
“This is an excellent opportunity to meet Billy Casper Golf’s Duluth team and learn about their plans for a great year of golf at Enger Park and Lester Park,” says Jim Filby Williams, Director of Public Administration for the City of Duluth. “We hope as many local golfers as possible will come out.”
About Enger Park Golf Course
Just south of downtown set atop a high bluff, Enger Park treats golfers to enjoyable experiences and breathtaking views of Duluth Harbor. Built in 1927 near the historic Enger Park Tower, the 27-hole course features three, distinct parkland-, links- and traditional-style layouts. Ranging from 3,168 to 3,359 yards, the par-36, “Front 9,” “Middle 9” and “Back 9” presents golfers with distinct experiences as several holes run through densely wooded areas while others navigate around scenic ponds and strategic bunkers. Four sets of tees ensure fun but fair tests for all handicappers.
About Lester Park Golf Course
Just north of downtown, Lester Park is well known for its natural beauty and panoramic views of Lake Superior on 20 of its 27 holes. Opened in 1932, the classic layout is set alongside the Lester River and meanders through open expanses and densely wooded areas. At 3,182 and 3,189 yards, respectively, the par-36, “Front 9” and “Back 9” courses present golfers with generous fairways, exciting elevation changes and gently undulated greens. The “Lake 9” course was added in 1985 and offers a longer and more challenging layout at 3,417 yards.
Like Enger Park, Lester Park boasts an all-grass driving range, putting green and chipping green with bunker. The clubhouse includes lockers, fully-stock golf shop with the name-brand equipment and apparel, and a snack bar and grill for quick bites and drinks.
