So this landed in my inbox just a little bit ago from the folks at Mississippi Dunes.
The golf course will be open on Sunday, December 18th for an 11:00am shotgun event. Reservations are required and you must register online.
Cost: 2-some package for $98 or a 4-some package for $196.
Packages include golf, cart, buffet lunch and 2 drink tickets.
This event is limited to the first 100 golfers registered online.
If the weather is below 32 degrees we will issue rain-checks for the 2012 season which will have NO RESTRICTIONS.
So, yes, we will have a shotgun start at Mississippi Dunes on Sunday. The 18th of December.
Update: Blog reader Stensation says that Majestic Oaks is also open.
I won’t be there, but I’m sure there will be some people there. A lot of them probably considering the high temperature could reach 40.
I’m not a super huge fan of Mississippi Dunes, but I do think it is good for early or late season golf like this. Because of the sandy structure to the soil, the course drains very, very well. It shouldn’t be a muddy mess on Sunday.
This would be one of the later Minnesota rounds I can remember. One of the first years after I moved back to Minnesota in 2000, I played a mid-December round at Daytona Golf Club. It was cold, but fun. I’m pretty sure that ponds were frozen over.
Anyway, good luck to anybody who tees it up this weekend.
