ribbon-cutting

Friday, June 17 the City of Greeley held a ribbon-cutting for the Boomerang Links Golf Course Back 9 after extensive construction and shutdown.

The ribbon-cutting included remarks from Greeley Mayor John Gates; Greeley-Evans School District 6 Assistant Superintendent of Support Services Kent Henson; Greeley Water & Sewer Chief Engineer Adam Prior; Manager of Golf Wayne Leighton, and Interim Culture, Parks and Recreation Director Kelly Snook.

The back nine holes re-open for play on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19. To book a tee time, golfers should register at golfingreeley.com.

Background:
The back nine holes on the Boomerang Golf Course closed in May 2021 to construct an irrigation pond, pump station, and new golf holes. City of Greeley and the Greeley-Evans School District 6 officials agreed to a land exchange to clear the way for construction of the new Tointon Academy of Pre-Engineering—a K-8 school. The redesign of the course improved the experience for golfers and provided:

  • Better access and improved safety for the new Tointon Academy
  • Significant water efficiency improvements
  • Safer golfing corridors

“We are so excited to finally have the Boomerang back nine holes open for play,” said Snook. “It has been an amazing collaboration between School District 6 and numerous departments at the City of Greeley. We hope visitors to the course enjoy the new layout for years to come.”
