OF THE MONROE COUNTY GOLF COURSES
Total Rounds up 34% Under County Operation; Improved Course Conditions
and Affordable Fees Result in Exceptional Value for Area Golfers
County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced that Monroe County’s three public golf course facilities, located at Churchville Park, Durand Eastman Park and Genesee Valley Park, will officially open for the 2017 golf season on Wednesday, April 19th. The Monroe County Department of Parks resumed full operational responsibility of the three County-owned golf courses in 2015, while contracting for pro-shop related services with Kless Meyers Golf Management, LLC.
“Beginning with the 2015 Season, our three Monroe County golf courses have experienced a real transformation in conditions, play, public perception, attendance and in overall golfer experience,” said Dinolfo. “Local golfers continue to recognize our commitment to quality and value, as demonstrated by a 34% increase in total rounds played at our three courses. Access to affordable recreational opportunities contributes to the overall quality of life for our community, which attracts both jobs and job seekers to Monroe County. We are looking forward to another successful golf season.”
In addition to exceptionally competitive daily greens fees, the three Monroe County Golf Courses will offer the following enhanced value opportunities in 2017:
Season Pass (for golfers age 18 and over) good for greens fees at all three courses, all season long. Golfers may choose to purchase a Daily Pass (7 days) for $450/season or a Week Day Only Pass (5 days) for $350/season;
Youth Season Pass (for golfers age 17 and under) good for greens fees at all three courses, weekdays and weekends, all season long for only $100;
Season Discount Golf Permit (Senior, youth, persons with disabilities and Military) good for discounted weekday and weekend daily greens fees at all three courses throughout the season. Permits cost $30 for qualified individuals, as follows: Senior (age 62 and older); Youth (age 17 and under); Persons with disabilities (physician note required); and Military (Active, Reserve and Veteran, with proof of service).
Additionally, FootGolf, an exciting hybrid of soccer and golf, will be offered for a second consecutive season on Genesee Valley’s South Course for a full 18 holes, simultaneously with traditional golf. This is the only course in the Monroe County region to be certified by the American Footgolf League (AFGL). Standard greens fees apply.

The Genesee Valley Golf Course is a public facility located on the Southwest side of Rochester in Genesee Valley Park. It is the closest publicly accessible course to Downtown Rochester. We have 2 full 18-hole courses: the North (or “Old”) course and the South (or “New”) course. The North Course is longer and moderately challenging, the South Course is shorter consisting of only par 3’s and par 4’s. The South Course is short and simpler. It is perfect for beginners, families and anyone interested in a quick 9 or 18 holes at a great price. Although known by old-timers as the “New” course it was built in 1923, which makes it old by many US golf standards. The South Course is also home to Rochester’s only full 18 hole AFGL Certified Footgolf course (see below for details).
The North Course opened in 1899 and was only the 4th course maintained at public expense in the country at that time. PGA Tour legend Calvin Peete did not pick up a golf club until friends dragged him to the game one summer day at Genesee Valley in 1966. He turned pro in his early 30s and was the winner of the 1985 Players Championship. He was the most successful African American to have played on the PGA Tour with 12 wins including the 1985 Players Championship!
Genesee Valley has a driving range with full grass teeing area and 3 practice greens. There is a fully-stocked Pro Shop, lessons are available, and the course supports junior golf clinics, camps, and leagues.
The Snack Bar offers a selection of fast foods as well as a variety of different drinks.
Tee Times are recommended and walk-ups are accepted on a space-available basis.
