SOUTH CHARLESTON, West Virginia - Even though snow covers the ground and the temperatures are still low, now is a good time to clean up the golf clubs and buy a season pass to West Virginia State Parks golf courses.

"Golf is lifetime pursuit that can be played by those who are young or more mature, and it doesn't cost as much as you might think," said Brian Wetzel, PGA pro at Twin Fall State Park. "West Virginia state parks have golf courses to fit most peoples' budgets of time and money, especially with the purchase of a season pass."

Golf professionals at four West Virginia's state park courses are taking action to encourage golf play by new players and to encourage those who haven't played in a while to return to the course. The structure and rates of golf play season passes have been retooled. In 2015 there are now only six pass options instead of 14. Each pass option has the same rate for Pipestem Twin Falls, Canaan Valley and Cacapon. A seventh pass is available for the Short Course (Par 3) at Pipestem Resort.

The new changes make reciprocal play available at the four courses. Additionally, the Adult Unlimited Day pass and the Adult Mid-week play pass include four overnight stays and four 18-hole rounds for a friend accompanied by a pass holder.

"We're determined to bring golfers new and old to the game," Wetzel said. "The rate structure, the additional values added, the reciprocal play and the other amenities at a state park all play a role in attraction of golf play."
