"We will once again offer a 5th night on June 5," says senior member Jon Munksgard. "This is your opportunity to check-in early and get aquainted with the event for a tax-included $47.00 per golfer (double occupancy)."
The 5th night participation is not expected to attract high attendance due to price, but it is an option for participants who would like to arrive early.
The Binghamton Riverwalk Hotel & Conference Center is the choice lodging for the Carl Spackler Open. The hotel is located in downtown Binghamton.
Roommate preferences will also be collected in March 2012, however actual roommates for the 4-night Carl Spackler Open will be heavily dependent on Tuesday night selections.
The included practice round will be teed between 12:00PM and 2:00PM on Wednesday, June 6, 2012. The practice range will open with balls starting one hour before the first tee time.
Traditions on the Glen (local golf course) is available for golfers looking to play 36 holes. The Senior PGA Tour course, En-joie, suffered damage to flooding in September, but has a re-opening schedule of June 1, 2012.
