Golfers are just getting started in the Quad Cities, thinking spring on the links as more courses are open for the season.

For most people, it's just about that time where we get that itch to go outside.

Today Red Hawk Golf Course opened at 10 a.m.

The greens aren't exactly as green as golf courses like to keep them and a lot of that is due to the overnight lows we have been experiencing as well as frost.
    
Because the ground is still hard, Red Hawk will be renting golf carts to players, usually at this time of year the ground is too soft.
     
Last Friday they opened the driving range for golfers and turn out was record breaking.

"We had a record," Red Hawk's Brant McGivern said. "We had more people out here because there is no where else open and a ton of people out here hitting balls. At one point, with 3 high school girls teams around 100 people."
    
McGivern said the course has worked out a deal with local high schools where teams play free of charge.
   
He said without collecting any money from the 3 high school teams, they still had a record day in terms of sales when the range opened.
     
They expect more of the same now that the weather has cooperated.
