DeKalb County on Monday reopened the popular Sugar Creek Golf and Tennis Center after pouring millions into repairs and improvements.

The public golf course first closed in the fall of 2017 for renovations and reopened in December 2019. But the course was closed again in March “after erosion caused safety issues with the golf cart bridges,” the county said in a statement.

The golf course, driving range and tennis courts will be open every day from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., with the county implementing several new safety precautions due to the threat of coronavirus. Visitors are required to wear face masks inside the clubhouse, and tee times will be every 15 minutes to ensure golfers are spaced apart on the course.

Located at 2706 Bouldercrest Road, Sugar Creek offers an 18-hole golf course, a driving range, 10 hard tennis courts and four clay courts. It has operated for more than 40 years. Since 2017, the county has spent over $2.2 million to renovate Sugar Creek, including installing new greens.

Fees to use the golf course range depending on the day of the week and whether the golfer lives in DeKalb County.
