A bit early, Riverview opens for season
space
Joe “Smokey” Kretz celebrated Easter by opening the doors for the season at Riverview Golf Course, a full week earlier than last year.

“We walked the course on Saturday and decided it could open,” Kretz said. “I sat by the phone waiting for people to call but we weren’t very busy.”

A bit of sun and hints of warmer temperatures are beginning to bring hardy golfers out to the course, located about five miles west of Antigo off Highway 64. And on Tuesday, members of the Antigo golf team came out, spending most of their time clearing branches and raking before taking to the fairways and greens for some practice.

Bass Lake Golf Course, located north of Antigo, is tentatively scheduled to open for the season next week. Maplewood Golf Course in Pickerel opened on Tuesday.

After pleasant weather today, golfing opportunities will be slim the rest of the week, with colder temperatures, rain and perhaps even a few flakes of snow in the forecast. Farther north, the National Weather Services is warning that wet, heavy snow is possible starting late night, and “it is not out of the question that an inch or two of snow could accumulate on grassy or snow covered surfaces.”

There’s also a chance of isolated thunderstorms, although no severe weather is predicted.

Sunny skies should return for the weekend, but chilly temperatures will continue.
