BILLINGS – The Exchange City Par 3 Golf Course is turning 40.
Most don’t realize the Billings West-end course is non-profit, cycling all profits back into the community. The club has raised $423,000 since 2003 and is giving players roll-back pricing all weekend – just $7 to play nine holes.
“We’re doing it as a thank you to our community and our surrounding areas for what everybody has done for us for the last 40 years,” said head pro Mark Hahn. “It’s a wonderful place for kids, and it’s a wonderful place for ladies – all golfers really. Everybody’s just so supportive, and we’re just so thankful for everything.”
The course is also giving out closest-to-the-pin prizes, and will hold a putting contest Sunday at 2:00 pm where golfers are encouraged to wear 1979 attire to celebrate the opening year.
