Golf Courses Seeing More Snow Than March of Last Year

Posted: Updated:

If you had any plans to hit the links soon, the forecast shows we're still a couple weeks from local golf courses opening up their tee times.

That, of course, is a big shift from last year's mid-March opening.

It's still early for the season, the target date most courses aim for is April first but after being spoiled last season with an extra two weeks of spring time play, courses and golfers are getting anxious.

Even with the early start in 2012, the season was about the same length as the year before since they ended two weeks early but any extra days in March are the most crucial.

9&10's Eric Lloyd spoke with two courses as they sit and wait and has more details.
