Conservancy Prepares Three Buffalo Olmsted Parks Golf Courses

By March 24, 2017No Comments


Weather permitting; the season is scheduled to open on April 22, 2017.

“As we swing into an early spring, we look forward to welcoming golfers back and remind our loyal patrons that we continue to offer the most affordable golf in town,” said Stephanie Crockatt, Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy’s executive director. “The Olmsted park system is home to three public courses totaling 36 holes, on which golfers enjoyed more than 51,000 rounds last year. Our operational mission remains focused on park excellence, and we look forward to another year of providing quality, value-based public golf experiences for all players, all season long.”

A seasonal golf pass allows City of Buffalo residents, as well as non-residents, to enjoy golf at all three Olmsted courses any day during the season: Cazenovia Park and South Park, (both 9-hole courses), and Delaware Park (18-hole course).

FootGolf, a hybrid of golf and soccer, returns for a third season to Delaware Park. “Everyone who came out last summer had a really good time,” said Dave Hoover, Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy’s golf operations manager. “The positive response exceeded our expectations, we look forward to providing an upgraded Footgolf course and equipment and encourage everyone of all ages to come out and try this fun new sport.”

About the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy

The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy is the first nonprofit organization in the nation to manage and operate an entire urban park system that consists of 850 acres of beautifully designed parks, parkways and circles. The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy is a not-for-profit, membership-based, community organization whose mission is to promote, preserve, restore, enhance, and maintain the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed parks and parkways in the Greater Buffalo area for current and future generations. More than 2.5 million people use Buffalo’s historic, award-winning Olmsted Park System annually for recreation, relaxation and rejuvenation. The parks were designed by America’s first landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, more than 145 years ago. Basic maintenance of the parks has been greatly improved since the 2004 groundbreaking public/private agreement with the City of Buffalo and Erie County. Since that time, the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, now partnering with the City of Buffalo, has retained full responsibility for the management and care of these green spaces, which are listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Most recently, the American Planning Association recognized Delaware Park as one of the 2014 Great Places in America.
