L.C. Boles Golf Course is currently CLOSED.

All College of Wooster buildings are closed to the public, including the golf course, to protect the health and safety of campus amid the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. The College is operating under the Governor’s stay-at-home order, and staff necessary to maintain the course are not working on campus with the same regularity. The College will do its best to perform maintenance as needed with the intention to reopen the course if health conditions allow. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.  

It is the College’s intention to issue a refund/discount on a prorated basis for the period in which the course is closed.  We will be in touch with members when we have more details.
