Cornell University Golf Course and Membership Information

Through a collaboration of the Cornell University golf course and Cornell Wellness, Wellness Recreation Members can receive $50 off the cost of a full season golf course membership. Wellness Recreation Members need to show their Cornell ID card, and sign sheet, at time of golf membership purchase to receive the discount. This discount cannot be combined with other promotional discounts. This reduced rate is only available to individuals who have a 1-year Wellness Recreation or CPHL Wellness Recreation Membership - not available to 4-month Wellness Recreation Membership holders.

Golf Lessons - 2019
Cornell Wellness has teamed up with Matt Baughan, head golf pro at the RTJ designed Cornell Golf Course, to offer golf lessons to the Cornell community (open to Wellness Recreation Members, non-members, staff, faculty, spouses/partners, retirees). Any level of ability can register. Lessons will cover all aspects of the game (from putting to full swing). You do not need to bring clubs to participate (there are sets at the course); but you can bring clubs if you have your own set. Wear comfortable golf shoes or sneakers to the lessons. Cost is $240 for a 5-lesson package; cost is reduced to $200 for 1-year Wellness Recreation or CPHL Wellness Recreation Membership holders. Arrive 15 minutes early for the first lesson to pay at the golf course’s Pro Shop. Classes must have a minimum of 6 registrants to run, and will cap at 10 registrants. For questions specific to the lessons email Matt Baughan.
