Jackets, Driving and Fun: What to Remember as Michigan Golf Courses Begin to Open

It’s been wet, windy, and cold the past few days but golf season is here and courses around northern Michigan are starting to open their doors.

Early season golf is a great way to get out of the house and get some exercise after a long winter of being indoors, but there are a few things to remember. Like bring a jacket and keep an eye on the forecast. Being careful when you drive the cart off the path since the wheels can damage the water logged course. Maybe even consider walking.

“I find people tend to play their better golf this time of year,” said Don Smith, Director of Golf at Eldorado. “They’re not worried about the bad shot they are just enjoying the company of friends and being outside.”

And remember after not golfing all winter you may be a little rusty, so don’t get frustrated you’ll be back in the wing of things in no time.
