Great news for all you overanxious, impatient, U.S. Open course chasers around the island and nation. According to the fine folks over at Bethpage State Park, the Black is scheduled to make its first babies of 2011 cry on April 15. The Red is set to open on April 1. No joke.
The Green Course, another fan favorite, is set to open on March 29. All of these dates are tentative of course, due to weather that’s more unpredictable than a Charlie Sheen interview. And no one around here would be surprised if 12 inches of snow started dumping in the next week (please God NO!).
In ’07 and ’08, yours truly had the honor of opening the Black in the first and second groups, respectively. I’m gonna try and do it this time around also. Job, game and weather permitting.
