According to a press release from The City of Cedar Rapids, "Twin Pines Golf Course will be open at 9:00 a.m. this Friday, February 17th." It's been a very STRANGE winter here in Eastern Iowa with the lack of snow and mild temperatures...... but I'm not complaining!

The course will operate without tee times on a first come, first play basis. Unfortunately, golf carts will not be available. Consider this a good reason to get started on that New Year's resolution to exercise more!

Twin Pines in located at 3800 42nd Street NE. In addition to the course opening, the driving range will also be available with mats only. Twin Pines will continue to stay open on warm days as weather allows.

I guess I know what I'm doing after work on Friday. This is the best news I've heard all week. Time to dust off the sticks and head to 42nd Street. I'll see you on the first tee!
