Spring Green Municipal Golf Course open for season

One of the surest signs that Spring has arrived is the opening of the local golf course. In the absence of a winter golf trip to a warm climate, most golfers put away their clubs for approximately five months. Seeing the snow melt and weather turning for the better leads golfers to a happy place, knowing golf at our local course is not far off. Instead of just watching golf on television, we can actually go out and play golf with our friends. The Spring Green Municipal Golf Course is now open for play, and on good weather days has been quite busy.
