Season opening dates have been announced for the Rockford Park District golf courses.

In 2020, if you wanted to participate in any activities, the way to go was outdoors. Though things are starting to open out slowly, your best bet for 2021 is more of the same. Plus, being outside in the spring and basically whenever possible is so much better. It was great to see all the families hanging out and not sitting indoors on their devices.

One of the more popular things to take part in was golf. You can do it as a family or friends, be outside and get some physical activity. It is a trifecta of events. We are very lucky in the Rockford area because there are some great courses thanks to the park district. Many residents take advantage of the opportunity. Also, compared to many other places, it is reasonable to play here.

I know some diehard golfers that will play as long as the courses are open. They do not care about the weather. They will be the last ones to hit the links for the season and the first to start back up. They have been itchy to play for several months now. The good news is the Rockford Park District has announced the opening dates for all their courses, weather permitting.

According to,
