Northwoods Adventure: Golf Season In Full Swing

BACKERS PLAYING LATE IN THEIR CAREER, BUT NOT REALLY WITH THE CORNERBACKS. >> DENNIS: THANKS. THE RECENT WARMUP ACROSS THE STATE HAS MADE CONDITIONS JUST RIGHT FOR A ROUND OF GOLF. IN THIS WEEK’S NORTHWOODS ADVENTURE, OUR JOSH PETERSON TAKES US TO BEMIDJI TOWN AND COUNTRY CLUB FOR THE SEASON’S FIRST TEE OFF. >> THE VIEW FROM THE LAKE MAY TELL A DIFFERENT STORY, BUT ACROSS THE ROAD AT THE BEMIDJI TOWN AND COUNTRY CLUB, THE TIME IS JUST RIGHT FOR A ROUND OF GOLF.

IN THE PAST, STARTING IN APRIL IS PAR FOR THE COURSE, BUT IT’S A OF SATURDAY, THE SEASON WAS IN FULL SWING. >> I THINK EVERYONE IS VERY EXCITED TO GET OUT. IT’S BEEN A LONG WINTER AND A REAL SLOW START TO SPRING HERE WITH THE TOUGH APRIL, BUT EVERYONE IS EXCITED TO GET GOING TO THE GOLF COURSE. >> WITH A SPORT LIKE GOLF, EVERYTHING IS EXTREMELY DEPENDENT ON THE WEATHER, WHEN, IN FACT, JUST ONE WEEK AGO THIS ENTIRE COURSE WAS STILL COVERED IN SNOW. >> ACTUALLY THAT’S THE ONLY REASON WE WERE ABLE TO OPEN UP AS EARLY AS WE DID, JUST CHANGE WE SAW FROM LAST SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

>> SOME OF THE VERY FIRST GOLFERS TO TEE OFF THIS SEASON WAS FROM A GROUP KNOWN AS THE INSOMNIACS. >> WE COME OUT AND USUALLY HAVE THE FIRST TEEOFF TIME. USUALLY TWO OR THREE FOURSOMES. CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT THE COURSE VARY THIS TIME OF YEAR, BUT IT WON’T TAKE LONG FOR THE COUNTRY CLUB TO GET INTO THE SWING OF THINGS. >> WE’RE JUST GETTING GOING. WE’RE ALWAYS A LITTLE BIT NERVOUS COMING OUT OF WINTER, HOW THE TURF IS GOING TO FARE, BUT WE’RE VERY OPTIMISTIC. WE HAVE ONE GREEN WE’RE DOING A LITTLE WORK ON, BUT OUTSIDE OF THAT THE GOLF COURSE CAME THROUGH IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. >> BUT FOR THESE GOLFERS, IT DOESN’T MATTER THE TIME OF YEAR AS LONG AS GOOD FRIENDS ARE INVOLVED THE SPORT IS ALWAYS FUN. >> I JUST LOVE PLAYING GOLF, FIRST OFF. I LIKE THE CAMARADERIE OF THE NUMBER OF GUYS I PLAY WITH, AND I PLAY WITH QUITE A FEW GUYS OVER THE YEAR.

>> AS THE SIGNS OF WINTER FADE AWAY, MAKING ROOM FOR THE BLOOMING BUDS OF SPRING, GOLF COURSES ACROSS THE REGION WILL CONTINUE TO SEE A STEADY SEA OF TRAFFIC OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS. WITH THIS WEEK’S NORTHWOODS.
