If you’ve been itching to hit one of the county-operated golf courses since the snow first started melting, your wait is almost over.

Both Brighton Dale Links and Petrifying Springs in Somers will open for the season on Thursday, March 18.

Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser said he hopes people will visit both county golf courses to see first-hand the improvements that have been made.

“We are proud of the work that has been done to improve operations and play at both courses,” Kreuser said. “There are also more improvements in the planning stages. Our golf courses are a incredible asset and we want Kenosha County residents to enjoy them.”

Season passes and merchandise will be on sale at both courses starting Wednesday, March 17th.

The hours of operation for both courses will be from 8 a.m. to dusk, seven days a week.

“We are extremely excited about the upcoming year”, said Dan Drier, PGA professional and general manager.
