Genesee Valley Golf Course Opens New Calvin Pete Pitch and Putt Facility

In partnership with PGA REACH, Monroe County Executive Adam Bello held a first putt ceremony at Genesee Valley Golf Course’s new Calvin Peete Pitch and Putt Facility.

Calvin Peete is a renowned golfer who played his first round of golf at the Genesee Valley Golf Course. The 150,000-square-foot facility received a $500,000 investment, including $250,000 from PGA REACH and a matching donation from Monroe County.

The course will consist of full artificial grass with a pitch & putt facility. It is designed to help golfers perfect their short game and teach golf to a new generation of players. PGA REACH hopes to promote accessibility and inclusivity for golf enthusiasts of all ages.

“This growth in the gaming initiative will give individuals of all abilities and socio-economic backgrounds the opportunity to learn the game of golf. It may one day produce the next Calvin Peete, but it will certainly give new golfers a place to play for the rest of their lives,” Ron Osborne of PGA REACH.

The Calvin Peete Pitch and Putt at the Genesee Valley Golf Course and the Churchville and Durand-Eastman Golf Courses are open daily during regular park hours.

Tee times can be booked at monroecountyparksgolf.com
