Shelby Golf Course Reopening Date Announced

Shelby Golf Course has an anticipated reopening date of January 2, 2021! The staff is excited to be welcoming back golfers to the facility for the first time since a powerful F4 tornado tore through the course. The clubhouse has a new "store front" and the course has had improvements and repairs to the irrigation system and cart paths.

COVID-19 update: Due to limited staffing available, and the distinct possibility that there could be COVID related quarantines pop up at any given time, it is advisable to call ahead before driving to Shelby Golf Course in case a sudden closure occurs due to lack of available staff.
