“There’s only so often an opportunity comes around where a course like Weatherwax closes, where you’re going to have an entire clientele of golfers looking for somewhere else to play,” said Adam Helms, general manager of the courses. “This is our chance to say, ‘Come play golf at our courses. We’ll make it super-affordable.’ ”

At Twin Run, adult season passes will drop to $775 from $925 in previous years. Seniors also receive breaks on cart fees. Junior passes will drop to $150 from more than $200. Also, 100 non-peak passes will sell for $150, down from $250.

Twin Run opens for the season March 1.
