Some early 60-degree weather has even average golfers cleaning cobwebs off those clubs, so some area golf courses are springing into action.
Cedar Creek Golf Course in Albertville has opened its driving range this week, and plans to open the 18-hole course to walkers by 8 a.m. Thursday, or when the frost is off the grass. Walkers will be welcomed, only.
Meanwhile, Riverwood Golf Course in Otsego will be opening the golf course and driving range to both walkers and riders after 10 a.m. Thursday, March 11. Golfers using a driving cart must stay on the paved paths at all times.
In St. Michael, Fox Hollow is hoping to have the course’s practice range and putting areas opened by the weekend, with the full course opening yet to be determined by grounds crew and staff.
Monticello Country Club pro Kristi Dostal said they, too, are hoping to have practice areas opened by the weekend for golfers. Covers on the course are just being removed from greens and frost is “way too deep” in wooded areas for the main course to be open yet.
