Golfers hit the course after long, cold winter

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - After a long, cold winter golfers in Quincy hit the links to see if they could get back into the swing of things.

Dozens of golfers came out to Westview Golf Course in Quincy on opening day to see if they hadn't lost their skills during the winter months.

Golfers say they're happy they finally got the chance to dust off their clubs and test out their drives. 

"Oh man, I didn't think this day would come to be honest," Adam Pfeiffer said. "It's been a very long winter. I think this is the latest start we've had in a long time in the years I can remember. It's just great to be out here to see all the friends and family that's out here."

Pfeiffer says most years he usually gets to hit the golf course a couple times in January and February, but it's just been too cold this year.
