Blessed by an early spring, Palmer Golf Course opened 18 holes with two temporary greens on Friday.
Word spread quickly. On Friday, about 50 players showed up, Palmer director of golf George Collum estimated. By Saturday, as many 80 were on the course — including one who buried an early-season eagle.
“It’s very early,” Collum said Saturday. “We opened in 2002 on the 28th of March. This is a week earlier, but we’re opening all 18 holes this time.” …
Collum said this is the course’s earliest opening.
