Burholme Golf upgrades discussed at community civic meeting

John Kirincich, a part­ner in the Burholme Golf & Fam­ily En­ter­tain­ment com­plex at 401 Cottman Ave., told mem­bers of the Burholme Com­munity Town Watch and Civic As­so­ci­ation that ex­cit­ing changes are com­ing.

Kirincich, ap­pear­ing at the group’s April meet­ing, said a fam­ily game room/party room is com­ing to the fa­cil­ity later this spring. The room will fea­ture skee ball, air hockey, pop-a-shot, video games and a prize counter. It re­places a former pro golf shop.

Since tak­ing over man­age­ment two years ago, Kirincich and his two part­ners have put up new bat­ting cages and net­ting, in­stalled new equip­ment on the golf driv­ing range and im­proved the land­scap­ing on the mini­ature golf course. There’s also a snack bar on site.

On a down note, Kirincich said the pop­u­lar huge golf ball land­mark on the grass of the driv­ing range will not be re­placed be­cause the mold is no longer made.
