We are Open for tee times starting May 1st COPY

We want to thank you for your patience on the status of the Bucknell 2020 golf season. We are excited to say the golf course will be open for play on Friday May 1st, 2020! Please understand that guidelines have been set forth by the state and certain precautions are being taken by the staff to ensure your safety and ours. We pride ourselves in providing a safe environment for our guests and employees to enjoy the game of golf. We have opened the golf course on a limited basis with some important changes to ensure everyone's safety. The safety of our staff and guests will not be compromised. In order to help us keep everyone safe and limit interaction with the staff all tee times must be booked and paid for in advance allowing you to check-in with the starter and tee off while continuously maintaining the CDC recommended 6-foot distance from our staff and other guests

PRE-PAYMENT IS REQUIRED:
All tee times must be booked in advance online or by calling 570.577.7340

All tee times booked must be paid for at time of booking. As we work through this technological transition you may not see the correct rate after you’ve logged into the booking engine. If so, please call the golf shop directly to book your play and pay via phone with a credit card. Additionally, our rates have been simplified so we apologize, but additional discounts, gift cards, and rain checks will not be accepted for payment towards online tee times at this time. If for any reason you cannot make your tee time, and you booked it through our website, please log in to your account and cancel. If you booked directly through GolfNow please go to their website and cancel. If those options are not possible, or you run into an issue please email us at info@golfphilly.org with the name, date and time of reservation.
