Wells College Golf Course

As we all continue to search for fun outings and activities we can do safely during this pandemic, Wells College has a suggestion for you  – come play golf on our beautiful 9-hole course!

The Wells College Golf Course is open dawn-dusk until early November. You can play 18 holes for as low as $18; no reservation required. This could be a terrific way to spend a few hours with family or friends – or a fun yet safe  ‘Office Day Out’ or a way to introduce guests or clients to the natural beauty and historic institutions present in Cayuga County.

First established in 1923, the Wells College golf course boasts several holes redesigned in the 1960s by renowned golf architect Robert Trent Jones (husband of Wells alumna Ione Davis Jones ’31). The course has a par of 36 with a total of 3,162 yards. The course rating is 69.4 while the slope rating is 117.

Despite the pandemic, this summer the Wells College Golf Course once again hosted weekly golf leagues as well as a number of tournaments. (This year, to protect player’s health, physical dividers were installed in each golf cart during tournaments to enable unrelated players to share).

Although the leagues and tournaments have wrapped up, the Wells College golf course remains open and will only become more picturesque as we enter autumn.

Why not come spend an afternoon at the Wells College Golf Course before winter forces us all inside?
