There is no fooling going on today at Riverside where the golf course has opened for the season. The course conditions are excellent for early spring, hats off to the Turfcare team for getting the course ready to go this quickly! The first player of 2011 teed off this morning at 8:35 am in cool but calm conditions. Currently the temperature is up to a balmy 8 degrees, the wind is calm and the sun is poking through, just the right recipe for a busy first day! As of 11:00 am this morning there are 97 golfers scheduled to play today, which comes as no surprise after such a long and snowy winter. Today also marks the first of 10 days where you will be able to ski and golf in Fairmont on the same day. Tee-times are available all weekend by calling 250-345-6346. See you on the links!
