Golfers anxious to get on the golf course are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It may not be the real thing, but the Marquette Golf and Country Club opened up it's driving range Wednesday.
Some of the ground is still frozen solid, but other areas are softening. Warm conditions melted a lot of snow on the course and have allowed for limited use of the driving range.
"You consider where I'm standing right now, on Friday there was about three feet of snow above my head where we're standing. So I mean that much has melted since Friday," said Craig Moore, Ground Superintendent of the Marquette Golf and Country Club.
So far the course is running a little late compared to the average start day of April 15th. Although they are a couple of days ahead of schedule compared to last year.
The way things are now, it will still be about two weeks before we see golfers on the actual course.
