Golf Course Programs, Camps, and Lessons
One of the things we are most excited about with the Parks Department managing both Greenbelt and Par 3, is the ability for us to offer lessons and programs at a lower price than a private golf course might. Since we are always striving to fulfill the mission statement of our Department, we are confident that it will result in an increased variety of new opportunities available to the members of our community and to those traveling in to stay in Columbus and our County! Your Golf Pro will be available at both locations throughout the week and will be readily available to talk with you about any unique opportunities, in addition to those questions you might have for improving your personal game!
Greenbelt Golf Course Leagues
The Parks Department is now forming leagues for the year! If you are interested in participating in league play at Greenbelt Golf Course, please call (812) 376-2684 for additional information!
