We hope you are having a nice winter and are looking forward to getting out on the course in the spring! We are excited to enter the 2016 season and anticipate we will be open around April 1st, weather permitting. As you may have heard, after careful consideration the Drake family has decided to sell Millwood after owning and operating the course for the past 48 years. The property was recently placed on the market and a buyer has been found. At this point, the sale goes to the town of Framingham and they have the right to match the offer. This process is likely to make the local news in the upcoming months. We would like to reassure our loyal golfers and league members that we can guarantee that we will be open for the entire 2016 season and for essentially all of 2017 until October 1st. The course will continue to be operated by the Drake family and will be run business as usual. We look forward to two years of enjoying golf on this beautiful location in North Framingham.
As the season approaches, it's time to start thinking about leagues! Millwood hosts a number of leagues, Monday-Thursday including senior, women's, competitive type, and casual type. Let us know what you are looking for and we can match you with the league that is the best fit for you! To inquire about league membership, send us an email at [email protected] or call the office line at 508-877-1156.
We are also excited to announce that will be running our popular Monday & Friday golf savings package for the 2016 season. Official start dates for this promotion will be announced as we get closer to opening. After a very mild winter in the Caribbean, Patrick and Julie will be returning to manage the 19th Hole for the 2016 season. They are looking forward to expanding the specials program and organizing various fun tournaments and outings throughout the year.
The Millwood Ladie's Clinic will also be returning for the 2016 season. The Millwood Ladies' Clinic is a "short game" clinic run on Wednesdays from 9am to noon, April through October. The Primary Focus is to improve your putting, chipping, and off fairway play. The Millwood sessions consist of 1 hour of concentrated instruction and practice, 5 holes of actual play, and lunch afterwards. All sessions are open to any ladies wishing to attend and are only a week by week commitment. If you are looking for one on one instruction, we highly recommend contacting pro Kevin Sullivan. Kevin holds lessons at the Southborough Driving Range and on-course lessons here at Millwood. For rates and further information please contact Kevin directly at 508-380-3786.
Lastly, save the date for our annual "Chowda" Cup, Saturday April 9th 2016. Registration information will be sent out shortly with further details. This is always one of our most popular events so early registration is recommended. We look forward to seeing you in the spring and hope the weather is mild in the upcoming weeks so we can open as soon as possible!
