Bijou gives lake golfers an opening

Tribune staff report

With not as much moisture falling downtown as in Meyers, Bijou Municipal Golf Course has been the only course open to the public this week.

The nine-hole course opened last Sunday, then closed when 3 to 5 inches of snow fell on Monday. The course has been opened since Tuesday, operating from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Nine-hole fees for El Dorado County residents are $13, with each additional nine $9.

A $10 twilight rate takes effect at 3 p.m.

Specials resident passes include a 20-punch card for $210, a 10-play card for $110 and 10-play twilight card for $85.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays also bring special rates for certain groups. Nevada residents can play as Eldorado residents and seniors can play all day Wednesday for the $10 twilight rate.

Tee times are arranged on a first-come, first-served basis.
