I just wanted to start a thread so we could all keep each other up to date on courses as they open.
Wisconsin Courses Open Update
Oakwood is still covered in snow and the nearby fields are super spongy. I'll followup if I notice the range or shop open up there.
I walked over to Oakwood today at lunch to see how it looked. Most of the snow and ice is gone from the fairways, but the ground is really wet, very soft in places, and standing water in the low spots. If they open in the next week or so it will become a ball plug special. I kept on the sides and off the fairways so I didn't leave embedded footprints all over the place.
I have not played that one. Any good?
All the Municipals opened yesterday.
Just got an email that Geneva National will be opening tomorrow. Kind of surprising to me though that the Lake Geneva courses are opening before even the local muni's considering they have hundreds of thousands of dollars more invested in upkeep but it's $39 for 18 holes (normally over $100 unless you find a deal) with a cart through April 17th. I've only played there twice in my life (Palmer and Trevino) but that's not a bad deal to play some pretty nice courses.
