Anytime that we get temperatures above 50 and sunshine in Michigan, golfers start to get the itch.

We've been extremely fortunate in Genesee County this Spring with the warm, dry weather so far. This weekend the sun was out, and temps were close to touching 70! That means that every golfer in the area got their clubs out, and tried to find a tee time somewhere. The problem is that when everyone is trying to get their first round in, the courses get packed!

If you were lucky enough to get a tee time this weekend, give yourself a pat on the back. You planned ahead, and were rewarded with some beautiful weather out on the course.

If you were like me, and waited until Sunday morning to try and get a tee time . . . I'm guessing that it didn't go so well. I ended up chipping balls in my backyard just to try and satisfy the golf craving that hit me. Spoiler alert . . . it didn't work.

It's the perfect combination of nice weather, and everyone's brackets being busted that helped contribute to the busy golf day.

The craziest part is that not all courses were open for play this weekend. Obviously the golf courses need to think about the ground conditions before they can just open up for business, but this weekend was prime for play.

Since I did not get to go out and play, I want to live vicariously through all of you that did. Let me know where you played your first round of the spring, and if you're brave enough, include how you shot.

I am going to use the info to post the course that saw the most action that day, and do the same poll at the end of the year. I hope you got a chance to get out, and that it went well enough for you to want to get out again soon.
