Here's a sure sign that spring is just around the corner. City officials are planning to open Waterloo's three municipal golf courses on Monday (Feb. 29, 2016).

Gates Park, Irv Warren Memorial and South Hills golf courses are all scheduled to open at 10 a.m. The courses will remain open for the season, weather permitting.

According to city officials, this will be the earliest opening date on record for Waterloo's public courses. The earliest previous opening occurred 16 years ago, on March 3, 2000.

Season passes are currently available at all three golf courses and at the Leisure Services offices at 1101 Campbell Ave., Waterloo.
