Golfers Disappointed With Winter's Comeback Snowfall

Late-season snow has caused grief for many people, but spring sports fans are having a particularly rough time as they are itching to head outdoors.

Many golf courses opened last weekend as the weather warmed up and the snow melted away. The Head Golf Professional at Pine Valley Golf Course in Marathon, Ryan Wendorf, said the winter was actually good for the course. The snow kept ice sheets from forming and killing the grass beneath, which made for a greener welcoming into spring. He said this new snowfall will set their new opening back a week or two, but are hoping weather will allow people to get out on the green this weekend.
