It may have been a long cold winter but a sure sign that winter is over and Spring has arrived happened Friday in the Hudson Valley. We had sun and temperatures in the 70s which is always a hint that we may have said goodbye to winter but the true test is our local golf courses.

Yes, golf fans it is official the 2022 Hudson Valley Golf season is officially underway. As of Friday (March 18th, 2022) you can now play a full round of golf for the first time this year. I did some searching to find out just how many courses were actually open and I was able to confirm three. That doesn't mean others won't be quick to follow so I say let the season begin.
