AMHERST – Golfers hoping to hit the greens at the Amherst Golf Club will have to wait.
“We don’t have an opening date yet,” said Michael Archibald, golf pro and general manager at the club, while getting the pro shop ready for a new season. “It depends on the weather over the next couple of weeks.”
We’ll try to get some portion of the course open at the end of the month, if the weather holds up.
Peter McCabe, course superintendent at the Amherst Golf Club
Golfers can start practicing their swings on the driving range beginning Friday.
Peter McCabe, course superintendent, and his team are working to get the course in shape. McCabe says the course is in better shape than it usually is after the winter season.
“We’ve been getting the greens out, getting the covers off, and getting the straw off," he said.
McCabe was mowing the green on the No. 9 hole Thursday afternoon.
“The front nine is quite good, but the back nine is behind because we started working on the front nine first,” said McCabe. “We’ll try to get some portion of the course open at the end of the month, if the weather holds up.”
