West Virginia State Parks Golf Courses Offer Daily Specials “Youth With Drive” Programs at Twin Falls and Pipestem
SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – West Virginia’s state operated golf courses offer daily greens fee specials. “Our golf specials encourage golf play by seniors, ladies, youth and afternoon play,” according to Brian Wetzel, golf professional at Twin Falls State Park.
Pipestem and Twin Falls courses both offer a Monday and Thursday “buy one greens fee and get one free” special. At Twin Falls this offer is available at 1 p.m. and at Pipestem the Monday and Thursday offer begins at 2 p.m.
Twin Falls and Pipestem offer Ladies Day specials. Ladies teeing off prior to noon on Wednesday at Twin Falls have a 50 percent off greens fee rate. At Pipestem, Ladies Day is Tuesday and the greens fee is $25 for 18-hole play and includes shared motorized golf cart.
Twin Falls encourages seniors age 60 and older to tee off prior to noon for a 50 percent greens fee reduction. Junior golfers, age 18 and younger, get the same deal, but on Friday after noon.
Both Twin Falls and Pipestem have a new program called “Youth With Drive.” A player age 17 and younger gets 50 percent off green fee every day when playing with a paying adult at Twin Falls and Pipestem golf course as part of the “Youth With Drive” program.
“For golf to be a lifetime sport or leisure pursuit, we need to continue to introduce youth to the game,” said Dave Caplinger, superintendent at Pipestem Resort. “We encourage adults to bring a young person to the course.”
