Local golfers will get to tee it up at Granite Pointe starting on Thursday.

Nelson’s Granite Pointe to open Thursday

The wait is over for Nelson golfers as the Rosemont course shakes off the snow and gets set to tee off

It’s been a lousy spring, but area golfers finally have something to celebrate. Granite Pointe has wintered well and opening day is slated for Thursday.

Last week’s sunshine and warmer temperatures melted the bulk of the snow on the Rosemont course’s front nine and though still a little soggy, the course is ready for play. Tee times are being taken for Thursday.

As of Monday morning the forecast was calling for a 40 per cent chance of showers on Thursday and 80 per cent for Friday. Saturday is forecast to be sunny with highs of 16 C.

One of the big changes at Granite Pointe over the off season is the clubhouse restaurant enhancements. Now called Wedge, the restaurant will only be serving limited items for the first week and kick into full service starting April 26.
