    Its almost here - see new SPRING OPENINGS forum to post your course opening there

    Drove by Casselview this morning. The snow has been removed from all the tarps covering the greens. Looks like just a thin layer of snow left before tarps are removed. Halleluiah
    Does the 2nd hole-n-one come easier ?

    The weather is looking somewhat promising. Anyone know of golf courses opening to the south of us, northern PA ?

    I've had a timer on my website counting down to the day the season started last year.
    20 days : 6 hours : 28 minutes

    Hoping the snow melts faster. Last year at this time Emerald had the driving range open even with snow on the ground.

    Syracuse will like have a course or 2 open early, the temperature there will be in the double digits for the most part in the next 2 weeks and webcams down no snow on the ground already

    Should the forecast be close to accurate we should be on the driving range in a week (fingers crossed)

    Article headline had me thinking a course was opening already. Driving ranges are better than nothing though! Should be too long now

    Saw this on FB this morning, and although a bit over the top, I'm sure many Forum members feel this way. ;-)

    You always hit a good shot on 18 to keep you coming back.

    Correct me if i`m wrong here but i have May 21st as the first day we were permitted to golf last year because the "science" indicated it was now safe to do so. Can anyone confirm when the first day was last year?
    Maybe i`m thinking of the previous year or just losing it
    Ping never misses...

    No comment on whether you are losing it .... but you are correct that it was May .. but 22nd. I remember petitions, bellyaching etc. etc. before things got straightened out.

    My first round last year was Apr 10, 2021, then everything shut down after that weekend, and came back up May 22....hopefully this year goes smoother.

    Sorta coming back to me now, opened for a short time as you mentioned. Either way, at the rate the white stuff was melting yesterday...could be out there very soon! Could be dry-ish by Easter,or sooner!

    I'm so pumped I am driving to Hilton Head on the 26th--already have a game booked . The "old mans" disease caught me or I would have already been there--better late than never
    Does the 2nd hole-n-one come easier ?

    Drove by Cedar hill today and still had quite a bit of snow. Assuming weather stay hot and the rain over the weekend, it may look like we starting around same time last year.
