Exciting Changes at Lincoln Park Pro Shop and Golf Course; Open House February 22

The Lincoln Park Golf Course Pro Shop is housed in a building, located at 800 Mantlo Circle in Lincoln Park, that is fast approaching its 100th birthday. As this impending milestone drew closer it became clear it was time for a few changes. Over the course of the last several weeks, a number of improvements to the facility have been made creating a more welcoming and modern space. New carpet, paint and lighting have been added in addition to structural changes that have improved the flow of the building. New seating, pub tables and televisions have been added in the lounge area that has been moved to the front of the building and a beautiful original stone fireplace that had been hidden was exposed, creating a more desirable atmosphere. The pro shop has been moved to the rear of the building, resulting in more room for merchandise and an overall more open feel and view through the building.

In connection with the renovation of the pro shop, reduced golf fees are also being offered with the best among them being an 18-hole daily rate of $15 (down from $28) and an 18-hole cart rental fee of $10 (down from $16).

In addition, a new Director of Golf has joined the operation. Mike Jurca joined the City of Grand Junction Golf Division on December 31. Mike is a native of St. George, UT, and has a well-groomed background in the world of golf. He is a former collegiate scholarship athlete who played golf at Brigham Young University. Mike spent the past three years of his working career as the Head Golf Professional at The Ledges Golf Club in St. George, UT. He also served as the Dixie State Men’s Assistant Golf Coach. Mike is a certified Class-A PGA Golf Professional.Open House Invitation.png

In celebration of all these changes, we would like to invite the public to come by and take a look and to meet our new Director of Golf.

The City of Grand Junction General Services Department operates two municipal golf courses: Lincoln Park and Tiara Rado. Both are operated as independent business operations and are not funded nor subsidized by City of Grand Junction General Fund revenues. Golf operations are funded by revenues generated by the golf courses themselves.
