I just got an email from a course called Wedgewood Cove Golf Club in Albert Lea.
The news: They are opening for the season on Saturday.
To the best of my knowledge, this is the first that I’ve seen of a Minnesota course opening.
I have not played Wedgewood Cove, but a friend has and he said it is decent. It’s fairly new, so it probably has decent drainage. In terms of a golf course, it can’t be too awful as the Minnesota Golf Association is going to hold a State Amateur qualifiying event there this summer.
Will I tee it up in Albert Lea on Saturday? The weather forecast right now doesn’t look super great, but I’m not going to rule out the possibility.
