TROY, NY – On Wednesday, April 11, Mayor Patrick Madden joined Deputy Mayor Monica Kurzejeski, Course Superintendent Greg Tudor, Parks & Recreation staff, and City Council representatives to unveil upgraded course maintenance equipment for the Frear Park Municipal Golf Course. The recently purchased apparatus – including two greens mowers, a 300 gallon turf sprayer, greens roller, and rough mower – expands capacity & response time for Frear Park staff and improves overall course maintenance, demonstrating the City’s commitment to the players and leagues that return each season.
Located within the City of Troy’s historic Frear Park, the Frear Park Municipal Golf Course is the crown jewel of the Collar City’s recreational facilities, providing over 46,000 rounds of golf annually to thousands of players from across the Capital Region. The Mayor’s 2018 budget reinvested in the City’s parks and green spaces, adding seasonal staff for the Parks & Recreation department and the purchase of upgraded course maintenance equipment for Frear Park.
Season passes are available for purchase at the Frear Park Pro Shop in a variety of options, with discounted rates available for Troy residents. For more information, please contact the Pro Shop at (518) 270-4553.
