Despite the city’s efforts to open golf courses by the third to fourth week of April, Mother Nature had other plans. The fresh blanket of snow not only affected the opening of Victoria Golf Course but also led to the closure of Rundle Golf Course. However, golfers could still practice their swings at the driving range at Victoria.
