Golf season begins in Wood Co.


An area golf course opened up nine holes Wednesday. Almost 100 golf enthusiasts took advantage.

Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids said the phones didn't stop ringing as people showed up to start their season.

Assistant General Manager Max Goska said he was surprised they got to open this early, after record snowfall set the course back a few weeks.

"We did not expect the back nine to dry out as fast as it has," Goska said. "But with the way the sun has been shining and the wind blowing, it dried out."

The driving range and front nine opened Tuesday.
