Thank You for a Successful Year 2!



THANK YOU to all who have helped make the second season of Pusch Ridge Golf a HUGE success.


The course is now closed for summer 2023, but we wanted to show our appreciation to our volunteers who have helped with our events to our weekly Wednesday morning clean-up crew to each of you who have played the course – THANK you, thank you, thank you.


Because of your efforts and support, we have accomplished the following this season!


  • 16,530 rounds played (we exceeded last year by 8%!) Note: a significant number of the greater play this year came from our youth outreach. Many families took advantage of the kids playing free after 2:00pm.

NONE of the above would have happened without YOUR time, energy and support!
