Driving ranges open earlier than last year

People dusting off the golf clubs and getting to the driving range is a sure sign of spring. The Dunes Golf and Winter Club opened their driving range earlier today which is 5 days earlier than last year. General Manager Andrea Pyper says they were full of people practicing their swing when they opened today at noon.

Superintendent of the Golf course Myles Ulley explains that before the actual course can open up, there needs to be some cleaning, melting, and the pins need to be put in. Although the golf course is keeping a tight lip on the opening date of the links, the opening of the driving range could mean the course may be open in the near future. Last year the back nine were open on April 18th which was 6 days after the driving range had opened.

Bear Creek Golf Course opened their driving range earlier this week and their front nine holes opened today. The Grande Prairie Golf and Country Club opened their driving range today as well.
