Monster Golf Course Plans For 2023 Reopening Move Forward
Will Host Maximum of 72 Golfers At A Time
KIAMESHA LAKE - The 18-hole Monster Golf Course being renovated on the site of the former Concord Hotel at Resorts World Catskills is expected to host a maximum of 72 golfers at a time with 32 employees.
That's according to a memo submitted to the Town of Thompson Planning Board last week by AKRF, the environmental/planning/engineering consultants for the project.
On Wednesday, representatives of "Empire Resorts Real Estate" updated the Planning Board regarding modifications to its existing site plan for a golf clubhouse (1,040 square foot building) and a 4,200 square foot storage facility for golf carts.
The memo to the Board said that Professional Golf Association events "are not currently anticipated" at the site, which was once known as one of the world's top 100 golf courses.
Those from the public who want to golf there will be required to register online and then checked in at The Alder Hotel before being transported by a shuttle to the course, officials said in their memo and at the Board meeting on Wednesday. A bus shuttle loop will also include the casino and the Kartrite Resort and Indoor Water Park.
Meghan Taylor, vice president of government affairs and public relations for Resorts World New York, told the Board that "we (Resorts World) are so excited to get this construction back underway and get this course open to the public."
"The plan is to have the Monster Golf Course open by summer 2023," Taylor told The SullivanTimes in an email response to an inquiry.
