“The warmer temperatures have a lot of golfers anxious to get out. Waukesha County wants to give those golfers a place to play, and Moor Downs is perfect,” Farrow said in a statement.

It’s important to note — Waukesha County officials will not announce an official start of the golfing season until all three Waukesha County golf courses are open.

Staff members are monitoring turf conditions at Naga-Waukee War Memorial and Wanaki Golf Courses. With the unseasonal warm winter, there are high hopes of starting the official golf season earlier than normal.
