Do you need another sign that spring has come early? Willow Creek Golf Course in Rochester opened up their driving range today. They plan to open up the front 9 holes for golfers on Friday and the back 9 sometime this weekend.

The weather is expected to stay unseasonably warm at least through the early part of next week. That should give area golfers plenty of time to dust off their woods and irons and get a few rounds in. Golfing in Minnesota before St. Patty's Day? Now that's what I call a 'stroke' of good luck.
