Columbia Golf Facilities in Minneapolis Open for Limited-Time PlaySource: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Golf enthusiasts in Columbia can rejoice as both the Columbia Golf Course and the Columbia Learning Center is throwing their doors open this Sunday and Monday. Who said winter weather has to put a damper on your swing? Certainly not the folks over at the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, which, according to a recent bulletin, is giving golfers the green light to hit the links – albeit on foot.

The course will be “walking only, no carts,” a limitation that's bound to have some cursing under their breath and others appreciating the extra exercise. And in case you've been itching to perfect your drive but Mother Nature put a dent in your plans, there's good news: the Learning Center is open for business, too, with players hitting off of mats only. So yes, you can still work on that slice, even if the grass is snoozing under a blanket of snow.

If you're planning on making the most of this limited-time offer, make sure to note that both facilities will be kicking things off at a leisurely 11 am come Sunday. Whether you're there to play a full round or just get some swings in at the Learning Center, it's a chance to escape the cabin fever and enjoy a little February fresh air. Just be ready to pack it in come Tuesday when the doors close again, with the reopening schedule being as fickle as the season's weather patterns.

Those looking to secure a spot for this golfing window should get a move on – slots like these don't hang around. You can book your tee time here, so sharpen those pencils and get your name down before you're left in the cold. The winter pause on your golf game is over, folks, even if it is just for a stroke or two.
