Any golf course / Driving range open
 
Does anyone know if any driving range is open in Edmonton?

Edit:

Millwoods Driving Range
Lone Spruce Driving Range

Buddy of mine mentioned that Millwoods' range was open. Surprised to hear it.

I should have brought my clubs, staying in windermere all weekend and didn't even think any ranges would be open.

3 weeks ago there was still snow here knee high. Any calgarians on here know if there's one open in the city yet?

Drys up quick there. I bet its been spring for a month there already.

Radium-Windermere area is a great climate. Very short winter and late fall and early spring. I've hiked around in November in that area. Something you could never do on the other side of the rockies.

Great vacation weather too of course.

You Edmontonians love your golf. You're my kind of people. I figure two more weeks and I'll make it out for my first 9 or 18.

oilfan09 04-10-2011 09:32 AM

:laugh: I imagine the lineups are gargantuan.

I'm picturing a huge jam of cars trying to get off the Whitemud exit at 50th, because if one range is drawing the eager golfers of 1 million metro residents... that's a lot of golfers.

I'd like to think the range north of 137th Ave and St Albert Trail will be open soon. It's quality. And big.

MLew10 04-11-2011 01:20 AM

They just tore it up pretty recently and it looks like it must be renos.

WHY they need to renovate a grass field I don't know.

They really need to change those horribly cramped upper boxes.

Waited an hour to hit a couple buckets on Saturday afternoon. It was worth it.

I'd gotten out once during the week just after work and it wasn't so bad.

They have put up new poles/fences. I'm not sure it they will be changing the grass or structures.
