Niagara County Legislator Jesse Gooch today announced that the Niagara County Golf Course will now offer a discount to veterans who have signed up for the county’s “Thank a Vet” program . Gooch’s resolution asking the county Parks Department to join the “Thank a Vet” program and set up a discounted rate passed the Legislature unanimously last month. Since then, Gooch has been working with the Parks Department to develop the rates.
According to Gooch, the “Thank a Vet” discount will now be two dollars off of nine holes, four dollars off of 18 holes and 50 percent off any size bucket of balls at the driving range. That means a weekday 18-hole round of golf would only cost $15.00 for members of the “Thank a Vet” program.
“The Thank A Vet program is just a small way to acknowledge those who served our country so when I realized the county golf course did not have a discount, I worked with County Clerk Joe Jastrzemski and Deputy Commissioner for Parks Jeff Gaston to put this together.”
Gooch said any Niagara County resident who was honorably discharged from the United States Armed Forces is eligible to receive a “Thank a Vet” card. For more information on how to receive your card, contact the Niagara County Clerk’s Office at 439-7022.
