Black Brook Golf Course

Every golfer has played in a summer tournament, but how many of you have played in January? You’ll play nine snowy, fun holes of golf followed by a warm bowl of chili, hot dogs, and hot chocolate. Golfers will be challenged to drive shots across frozen tundra and putt balls laden with ice. You’ll hit provided orange golf balls to snow-covered greens on the 9-hole course of 65-100 yard holes (and if you lose them, you are done)! Gift certificates for 18 holes will be awarded to the three winning teams. 

Proceeds benefit the United Way of Lake County.

Cost:  $20 which (includes golf fees, food, and hot chocolate)

Get a team of four together or we'll try to put you on a team with other Chapter members.

To register for this event, please call Mentor Recreation Department at 440-974-5720

We recently posted two surveys to help with our 2024 planning.  The first survey asked for suggestions for courses if we were to add an additional league night.  The course named most frequently was Bunker Hill.  However, in subsequent survey, only three persons responded that they would be able to commit to playing at that location so there would not be enough participation to create an additional league night.

The other question was regarding a Stay and Play weekend that would require a Friday or Monday in order to reduce costs.  83% of the respondents supported that idea.

We appreciate participation in our surveys - it helps us provide activities that our members want - so Thank You!
