This year’s proceedings at Augusta National are less than a month away, taking place April 8-11, but golf courses in Canada are getting a jump on the season long before the first men’s major of the year.
Certainly, Southern Ontario was basking in springlike conditions last week under sunny skies and temperatures getting close to 20 C. As a result, golf courses around Windsor, Ont., were opening, according to this story from CTV News.
They weren’t the only golf operations opening or getting ready to open in the next few weeks, including some in Lethbridge, Alta., according to this story from CTV, and in Prince George, B.C., according to this story from MyPrinceGeorgeNow.
These may be temporary openings with winter possibly returning, but positive signs for the golf industry, which is seeking a fast start with COVID-19 still an issue.
So, which will come first at the golf course where you work or play? Opening the course for play, even if it is just for a few days, or the Masters?
