TRENTON, N.J. - The free day of golf offered to all current 2012 Mercer County golf card holders will be held Saturday, March 31, 2012, the Mercer County Park Commission announced. The Park Commission will make all tee times available starting at 7:30 a.m. until they have been reserved.

For the past decade, the Mercer County Park Commission had offered a free day of golf to all Mercer County golf card holders on New Year’s Day. But because of unpredictable weather, the Park Commission has moved the date back, allowing more golfers to take advantage.

“A free round of golf at one of our four terrific golf courses is a great opportunity to dust off the clubs and start the season for many of our local golfers,” 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. Both Mercer Oaks courses and Mountain View will accept automated advanced tee times by phone or Internet reservation for those individuals who have renewed their resident membership cards for 2012; or 2012 card holders can simply walk-on at Princeton Country Club on Saturday, March 31.

Mercer residents can renew their ID cards in person at any of the golf shops or online by visiting the booking link below. The 2012 ID card will allow golfers to make tee time reservations via the Internet or by phone and also will allow for appropriate greens fees to be charged. Tee times will be made the same as usual, seven days in advance by calling the tee time system at (609) 882-2177 or visiting online booking at: http://direct.e-golf.net/mercercounty/eg_home.show_form.
