Atwood Lake Resort golf course open

October 14, 2010

The 18-hole golf course at Atwood Lodge is very much alive and well – and open.


And with the beautiful fall weather, the course is in excellent shape and "it's never been better here as far as I remember," said Megan English, director of golf for the facility. English has worked at the lodge for the past 13 years.


The golf course, along with the lodge's 17 four-bedroom vacation cabins, are open and accepting tee times and reservations by calling toll-free (800) 362-6406 Ext. 275, or (330) 735-2630.


And this weekend the golf course will be hosting a special "Fall Appreciation Outing" on Saturday, Oct. 16, for only $25 per player.


"Our goal for the outing is to have a fun day of good golf and then get everyone on their way home in plenty of time for the big Ohio State-Wisconsin game at 7 p.m.," said English. "What a great way to spend your Saturday - first at the golf course, and then rooting on the Buckeyes."


The course is receiving plenty of play and a special fall rate is being charged with 18 holes and a cart for $18 (or only $9 for 9 holes and a cart). A senior rate for golfers ages 55 and older is $15 for 18 holes and a cart.


The main lodge, restaurant, lounge and meeting center closed recently at Atwood. However, English and the staff at the golf course and vacation cabins are reminding visitors and past customers that they are still open.


The lodge is owned by the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD). Its closing also is not related to operations of the campgrounds and activities at nearby Atwood Lake Park, which offers camping and cabins for rental all year long.


"We want people to know that Atwood is a beautiful place and there is plenty to do here, even after summer winds down," English said. "The pro shop is open here at the golf course and we can organize events and outings for groups of almost any size.


"There's absolutely nothing more scenic than playing golf beside Atwood Lake."
