Free golf helps golfers get ready for seasonSubmitted: 04/26/2015

MINOCQUA - The cold weather looks like it's finally behind us.

That means it's a perfect time to start golfing, and Timber Ridge Golf Course in Minocqua has a special "thank you" for its customers.

They're offering a free round of golf through the end of April.

Course officials say they want to get people excited for springtime.

"We just kind of felt like, the beginning of the season, it's just kind of an opportunity to say 'let's get people excited to play golf,'" says Timber Ridge Head Golf Professional Jerry Collins. "Let's get them out here, let's get them fired up for the golf season, and what better way to do that than have them come on out and have a nice free round of golf."

You won't get the opportunity to play golf for free often, but this may not be the only time you can do it.

"Our customers that we have here that are local, it's really important that they're coming out and enjoying Timber Ridge, and we just wanted to say 'thank you' to them," says Collins. "It is probably something that we would consider doing again."
