Area golf courses having to delay opening day

Many area golf courses still waiting to book tee times until the weather gets better.

The day following the final round of The Masters did not provide the best conditions to head out for a round of golf in northern Michigan.

The three courses at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa remain empty and unopened this week while Bay Meadows Golf Course has been fielding calls for weeks wondering when they would be able to get the snow off the ground and open for business.

The Grand Traverse Re

sort plans to open Spruce Run, Wolverine and The Bear next week while Bay Meadows plans to get things going by opening their driving range this weekend.
