Spring time means golf season, and over the past few weeks, courses have been opening up all over the city.
Fox Hollow golf course located near Deerfoot Trail is a place for people of all skill levels to get out and test our their skills. Local golfers enjoy going to Fox Hollow because of the area that its located, and there are benefits that come with being a member, such as the men’s club which takes place on Sunday’s.
With the ever changing weather in Calgary, it presents challenges for the course, and employees know that there are risks of opening up the greens around this time of year, due to the fact that they can get damaged by the weather and people using them improperly.
Just last week there was six inches of snow on Sunday, and it was cleared by Monday afternoon, which abled the course to open up later in the day. According to assistant golf pro Bryce Dancer, if the course stays on top of knowing what’s happening with the weather, they can prepare themselves.
With the season up and starting, there are plenty of tournaments, men’s and women’s nights, just around the corner for avid golfers to enjoy.
