Pleasant Knolls

Pleasant Knolls Now Open
7:00am to 7:00pm daily, call 877.748.4653 for reservations

Pleasant Knolls is a player-friendly recreational course, offering a relaxing nine holes of par 36 golf. Sprawled over 70 acres, Pleasant Knolls features wide-open fairways, fast greens, challenging water hazards and gently rolling terrain.

To keep everyone safe, please note the precautions that will be in place.

Golf Carts
We will empty, wash and disinfect all golf carts after each round. One person permitted per golf cart. No scorecards, pencils or golf tees will be left in the golf carts — we will provide these items to guests at first tee. We will also spread a small number of golf tees on the ground for the guest to pick from rather than grabbing a tee out of a basket. Water coolers will not be provided. Instead, we will provide each guest with one (1) bottle of water per guest at the first tee. Carts will be parked at the bag drop, with a maximum of 12 golf cars at bag drop at any given time. Carts will be moved to the cart staging areas after the cart is loaded with guest clubs, where we will park carts 6 feet apart.

We will disinfect and refill the sand seed bottles each round and refill. We will clean guest clubs after each round but we will reduce bag handling when possible. A cup will be inserted on each golf hole (including putting greens) to keep the ball from falling to the bottom of the cup to help reduce flag use. Bunker rake will not be provided on the courses. Golf Rangers and Grounds employees will rake as much as possible around guest play. A local rule will be in effect to ensure all guests are given a good lie in the bunker. Ball washers will not be at tee boxes. We will not stock sand bottle refill stations. We will clean and disinfect rental sets after each use.

Driving Ranges
Balls in bags will be provided in each golf cart rather than providing a shared supply at driving range. We will disinfect bags after each use while we wash the golf carts. We will disinfect all balls before/after use. Hitting stations will be positioned every 8 feet.

US Kids Golf

Pleasant Knolls is now an official US Kids Golf recognized facility and the location of the 2018 & 2019 PGA Jr League Local Championship

Most forward tees on golf courses are too long for adult beginners, much less for kids. So after extensive research and feedback from golf professionals, US Kids Golf has developed a system of Level One and Level Two tee plates for kids and adult beginners.

The US Kids Golf Family Course Program is the answer for family golf. Specialized, smaller sized clubs make the game of golf more enjoyable for the whole family.

The benefits include a better pace of play, more fun and a better overall experience.
