The 2021 golf season at York Lake officially kicked off last week.
Rick Schrader, vice president of the York Lake Golf and Country Club, said he was just excited that they were able to open earlier than last year, though the course itself is not at 100 per cent just yet.
“We have our course under an overseed scenario, so we have some temporary greens and some shorter par threes to get the grass to grow this year because we were in a drought situation last year, which dried out a lot of the fairways.”
In about six weeks, Schrader said the two temporary greens and the rest of the course should be back to normal, but that hasn’t stopped golfers from teeing off.
“Everything is pretty positive as far as the club goes. It’s been very busy,” he said. “I have never seen so many young people out here golfing before. Young couples, and just a bunch of young men coming out and enjoying themselves.”
Schrader added that in terms of COVID-19 restrictions, you must wear a mask, and you can only golf with people within your bubble.
