CRESTBROOK PARK INFORMATION -
Crestbrook Park is located on a 236 acre facility and is Connecticut's third highest ranked municipal golf course (per Golf Digest, 1998). It was originally a 9-hole private golf club which the Town of Watertown purchased in 1975. In 1980 a second 9-holes were added. It is now an 18 hole golf course complete with a full service Pro Shop and a 5 acre practice facility.The entire facility is self supporting and is currently operated as an enterprise fund at no expense to Town taypayers.
DID YOU KNOW ???
Crestbrook Park (the entire park) is an Enterprise Fund.
What that means is the maintenance staff, golf pro, starters, rangers, lifeguards, and all seasonal help are paid for by your season tickets and daily green fees.
Renovations and maintenance for the restaurant, tennis courts, pool, pavilion, roads, and of course the golf course are also part of this Enterprise Fund.
All employee benefits, bonding, plus an administrative reimbursement (monies given back to the Towns General Fund) are included.
The entire Park and its expenses are 100% self sustaining, paid for by YOU!!
This park is not a tax burden on the taxpayers of Watertown/Oakville.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT !!!
