TROY, NY – On Tuesday, April 16th, the Frear Park Municipal Golf Course celebrated the official opening of the 2019 season. Mayor Patrick Madden joined Course Superintendent Greg Tudor, Course Manager Josh Buell, and longtime course starter Jack Stapleton for the ceremonial first tee shot to mark the start of Frear Park’s 88th season of golf in the Collar City.

Season passes are available for purchase, with discounted rates available for Troy residents. For more information or to reserve a tee time, contact the Frear Park Pro Shop at (518) 270-4553, Parks & Recreation at (518) 235-7761, or visit the Parks & Recreation Department website.

Located within Troy’s historic 247-acre Frear Park, the course is one of the crown jewels of the city’s recreational facilities. Originally designed as a nine-hole course which opened in 1931, the course was expanded to 18 holes in 1964, designed by Robert Trent Jones, one of the game’s greatest course architects. Enjoyed by thousands of players each year, Frear Park remains a great attraction for local golfers, with twenty-seven established leagues and over 46,000 rounds of golf played annually.
