Three more local golf courses are set to open this week.
Glen Lea Golf Course is set to swing into the season today, while the Shilo Country Club is planning to open its 18 holes on Thursday, with Northern Pines planning to open this week as well. Meanwhile, the city-owned Wheat City Golf Course is also opening earlier than ever before, albeit with a shortended seven-hole course to start the season. Wheat City course manager Bryce Wilson hopes to have a full nine holes in operation by late April, with the full 18-hole course likely open by August once fairways have been re-seeded. Sunnyside Golf Course is also expected to open shortly, although no one could be reached for confirmation on Tuesday.
For Shilo, it is the earliest opening ever for the course and 35 days earlier than last season. The Deer Ridge Golf Course was the first local course to open last weekend.
