Busy Opening for WLGC
The golf course has been very busy with golfers anxious to get those early season rounds under their belt after a long cold and wet winter. The North Course has been open since April 13 with tee times being used starting at 10 a.m. each day. Cart restrictions remain in effect with cart users asked to please remain on the paved paths at all times to protect the turf as it remains very wet in some areas. Plans for opening the South Course are still on hold as we assess the conditions daily. There is a consideration to open the South Course holes on the north side of Fairway Drive for play to offer more playing options. This limited opening would include holes 1-5 and 14-18 on the South as we wait for the rest of the course to dry out.
