The crocuses are up with the daffodils close behind, frogs have been playing dodge- the- cars on rainy nights, and yes, the golf season has begun- at least for now.
Here is a listing of some local public courses that are up and running or close to it:
Canaan Country Club in North Canaan, CT is open but walking-only, no carts yet.
Fairview Farm Golf Course in Harwinton, CT is open for business with carts.
Undermountain Golf Course in Copake, NY is open with carts in the rough-only.
Green Woods Country Club in Winsted, CT promises to be open in “a week or so” – they are rolling greens and raking up winter debris.
Stonybrook Golf Course in Milton, CT should be open by this weekend.
Quarry View Golf Course in Canaan, CT is open with carts. The driving range is open too.
The Links at Union Vale are open with carts (cart paths only).
The Hotchkiss School Golf Course typically opens by April 15th, but can open as early as April 1st under favorable conditions, according to their website. I’d say this might be that kind of year.
Neither the Egremont Country Club in South Egremont, MA nor Winding Brook Country Club in Valatie, NY are open yet, but stay tuned – they’ll be opening “soon”.
So there you have it Golfers. Plenty of open options to dispel all of that pent up demand.
Just stretch first, OK?
