Barksdale Air Force Base Golf Course Open to Public

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER CITY, La -

It's been a cold winter in Louisiana but it's feeling like spring at Barksdale Air Force Base.

They recently opened up their golf course, Fox Run, to the general public.

Now, everyone can enjoy the greens.

Golf Course Manager William Duckworth says they are seeing a good number of people coming to base to play golf.

"We've been working a couple years now with the Air Force for them to provide a waiver for us to allow civilians, outside public, onto the base for purposes of playing golf and that just got approved back in October and we just went live with it the first of the year," said Duckworth.

If you'd like to take advantage of the weekend weather and get in a few rounds at the Barksdale Air Force Base you have to fill out a request form.

Once you complete it, return it to the golf course and within three to five days you should learn if you are approved.

Once that happens, you can go to the gate to pick up your identification card which is good for one year.
