Boomerang Links Golf Course Officially Opens Back Nine Holes
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.
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.”
