TRENTON, N.J.—The free day of golf offered to all Mercer County golf card holders will be held Saturday, Jan. 23, 2010, the Mercer County Park Commission announced.

For the past decade, the Mercer County Park Commission has offered a free day of golf to all Mercer County golf card holders on New Year’s Day. Due to inclement weather on Jan. 1, the annual tradition had to be rescheduled for Jan. 23.

“A round of golf is a terrific way to usher in a new decade for many of our local golfers who’ve adopted this fun tradition,” said Park Commission Executive Director Kevin Bannon.

Mercer Oaks East and West in West Windsor, Mountain View in Ewing, and Princeton Country Club in West Windsor will all be open, weather permitting. (Snow on Jan. 23 would cancel play). Both Mercer Oaks and Mountain View courses will accept automated advanced tee times by phone or Internet reservation for those individuals who have renewed their resident membership cards for 2010; 2009 cards will be accepted for the free play day, but those residents must either call the course of their choice directly for a reservation, or simply walk-on Saturday, January 23rd.  The first tee time at all courses is 8 a.m., frost permitting.
