A local golf course is reopening its doors after closing for
That's because it's so nice out.
The course wanted to give its members one last chance to
enjoy the warmer weather.
Greenwood Hills Golf Course in Wausau officially closed its
doors for the season last week, but when warmer weather made a comeback, the
course decided to let members hit the links for the holiday.
"Actually, this is the first time I've played in about a
month, so I didn't really think we'd be able to get out again. So, this is
exciting," said David Dassow of Weston.
Dassow is taking the opportunity to spend some quality time
with his son, Max.
"A little father-son bonding time, school's off today, so
this was the perfect time to get out and play some golf," said Dassow.
"It's my first time going to a real golf course like this,"
said Max Dassow.
But not everything during these few days is the same as
during the normal season.
"Well, we've taken in all of the golf amenities. We actually
don't even have holes in the ground. We filled them with sand for the winter.
So basically, the guys are just going for a nice walk and hitting golf balls,
and they're probably going to have their best score because they don't even
have to make it," said Kerry Fitzgerald, Head Golf Professional at Greenwood
Still – the golfers don't seem to mind.
"Right now, the greens aren't mowed or anything. We have,
you know, leaves and pine needles all over. So, you have to putt through it. It's
all part of playing in the fall. It's part of the challenge, shall we say. It's
fun," said Bruce Goldsworthy of Wausau.
A couple extra days for golfers to enjoy their passion.
Employees at Greenwood Hills say they expect to see around
50 golfers during their reopening.
