Crystal Mountain Opens Golf Course for Season

Golfers rejoiced Friday as Crystal Mountain officially opened up their Betsie Valley Course.

Crystal Mountain’s maintenance crew has been hard at work for weeks getting greens ready and cleaning up after the harsh winter so golfers could enjoy their first round of the year.

This is about two weeks earlier than last year.

They say this is always an exciting time of year.

“We’re going to be gung-ho about getting players out on the course and it is exciting, it’s a new season every year. The winter time gives us some time to recharge and then when we get out in the spring, man we are ready to play,” says head golf professional for Crystal Mountain, Greg Babinec.

Crystal Mountain’s Crystal Classic is happening this weekend.

It’s their kick-off to golf season.
