Southeast Wisconsin and Milwaukee County Parks are excited to announce that kids can now golf free at Noyes Park Golf Course in Milwaukee.
Thanks to a new partnership between the two organizations, junior golfers under 18 years old will be welcomed to play at no cost for the remainder of the 2022 golf season and for the full 2023 golf season.
“We are thrilled to partner with Milwaukee County Parks on this exciting program to make golf more accessible for kids in our community,” said Inge Plautz, First Tee – Southeast Wisconsin board president.
“We know that cost can be a significant barrier for those learning the game, and we want to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to participate. Noyes is a tremendous community asset and an outstanding facility for kids and families to play and practice. We are so appreciative of our partnership with Milwaukee County Parks and their support of our vision that all kids in Southeast Wisconsin have the opportunity to build their strength of character through the game of golf.“
The green fees will remain the same for all other golfers. The nine-hole rate is $7 for adults and $5 for seniors and players with a disability.
“We have had an excellent relationship with First Tee – Southeast Wisconsin for many years and are excited to continue the relationship with this new partnership,” said Guy D. Smith, Milwaukee County Parks Executive Director.
“Milwaukee County Parks is committed to making facilities and attractions accessible to all visitors and First Tee – Southeast Wisconsin’s vision to remove cost barriers for junior golfers aligns well with our mission. Golf is an excellent way for kids to get outdoors, build character, improve mental health, appreciate nature, and so much more. We truly appreciate the work First Tee – Southeast Wisconsin does to impact young people in our community through the game of golf and we look forward to continuing our work with them for the benefit of the community.”
