We here at John A. White would like to thank you for your continued patience and support. As you may know, we are currently closed, as we install paved cart paths! This is an exciting time for us and we look forward to opening back up for public play and have you see the vast improvements!  We have completely repaved and repainted our driveway (Photo 1Photo 2Photo 3) and about 90% of the cart path has been cut in! 

Please note that the driving range will remain open during cart path installation. During this time, the driving range will have the following hours of operation:

Monday - Friday            8:00 am until 7:00 pm

Saturday                      8:00 am until 3:00 pm

We are hoping the weather cooperates with us a little better going forward, but either way, we will not be deterred! We look forward to having you back out here, playing our course hopefully in mid-September!
