Black Sands Golf Course Open
By Jarann Johnson
Normally local golfers are tuning into The Masters at home this time of year and wondering when they are going to get a chance to head out on the golf course. The Golf Gods and Mother Nature came up with an exciting deal to open the course early this year, though, so there may be less watching golf and more playing.
The Black Sands Golf Course opened Wednesday and will be running from noon until 6 p.m., according to Clubhouse Manager Lori Maliske.
“We’re opening Wednesday and the clubhouse hours will be noon to 6 till the weather gets better,” Maliske said.
Not only is the course open early but the clubhouse has some new additions. During the off-season the clubhouse was closed while renovations were added: new flooring, carpeting, paint, and lighting. The sun room was also remodeled during renovations.
Maliske mentioned that the first event the clubhouse will host this spring will be the Kickoff Banquet April 11. The Kickoff Banquet will start at 5:30 p.m. and consist of a social, dinner, and a silent auction.
Once the regular season starts, Maliske said that she wants to host a men’s night event on Wednesdays, a ladies’ night event on Thursdays and look to have a couples’ event once a month.
