Homewood Golf Course Opening Postponed Further; New Opening Date on Friday, May 1
Ames Parks and Recreation Department is postponing the opening of Homewood Golf Course, a public nine-hole course located at 20th Street and Duff Avenue. In late March, it was announced that the anticipated opening day would be April 15. However, the new opening day is now anticipated to be Friday, May 1.
The City of Ames has based its facility opening and closing decisions on protecting the health and safety of its customers and City staff. As monitoring of local, state, and federal guidelines for best practices in containing the COVID-19 virus has continued, the decision to further delay the opening of Homewood to May 1 was made.
Additional rules and expectations for safe, social distancing practices to protect golfers and staff will be implemented. These new policies will be posted on the Department’s homepage and at the golf course.
Updates to the opening of Homewood Golf Course will be posted to www.amesparkrec.org and the Department’s Facebook page. For questions, please call Parks and Recreation at 515.239.5350.
