Golfers in the Sioux Falls area were able to hit the links for the first time today to help put winter behind them.
Willow Run was one of the GreatLIFE courses that opened today. Golfers say the course in good shape, minus one hole on the back nine that still has some snow. Duane Broek plays golf all around the country, but he's happy to be playing closer to his Watertown home.
“I have played a couple times in California, Columbia Missouri, Omaha, but it's wonderful to be back in South Dakota on a golf course,” Broek said.
Broek says he plans on playing 140 rounds of golf this summer.
