9 Holes of the Golf Course Set to Reopen Soon!

The Isle Dauphine Golf Course was closed in 2012, due to a lack of funds to keep it operating.  But great news!  A driving range was opened on the property in the Summer of 2014, and 9 holes are set to reopen soon.  Click here to read more.

Golf Course Hole Markers

The original Hole Markers for the tee boxes at the Isle Dauphine Golf Club are missing. The only marker we still have onsite is for Hole #1, pictured below.


If you have any of the markers (or know anyone who has any), please return them to the DIPOA office.  NO HARM...NO FOUL.  We would like them back since we are working to reopen the course.


Please share this request on any social media or other sites.  We want to get the word out!


You can return them to the Driving Range, the DIPOA Office, or the barn.  Feel free to drop them off during or after business hours. No questions asked.


The volunteers are on track to open 9 holes before Thanksgiving and they would like to replace the original signage if possible.


YOU can help!  Please spread the word!
