The city of Colville, Wash., has teamed with Dominion Meadows Golf Course to encourage GA pilots to fly into the city’s general aviation airport and play a round of golf at the adjacent golf course.
Pilots flying in with family and friends to Colville Municipal Airport can notify the Dominion Meadows Pro Shop (509-684-5508) ahead of time to arrange a tee time.
Dominion Meadows will either pre-position the required number of golf carts at the airport, or pick the fliers up at the airport ramp. The fly-in group will simply load themselves and their clubs on the carts and come directly through the golf course gate, check in with the course staff, and proceed to the first tee.
As an introductory incentive, Dominion Meadows is offering program participants a package of two 18-hole rounds, cart, and small warm-up bucket of balls for $54.
“Recreational pilots are always in search of the proverbial $100 hamburger,” airport officials said in a prepared statement. “Well, compare the value here — twice the value for half the price! Even non-golfing aviators are likely to take up this wicked mistress of a sport when they hear about this program.”
