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.
Come on now Jeff, what about 45-50 degrees and sunny on Saturday in Albert Lea doesn’t sound awesome. I have not played Wedgewood yet, but have eaten there and the food is good.
The weather is going to be pretty nice on Sat…but isn’t there snow on the ground everywhere?
