Austin golf course set to open this weekend (with restrictions)

Mower County golfers have been watching the news – and the weather – for indications as to when they might be able to hit the links for the first time this year.

Following guidance from Governor Walz and state officials, one Austin golf course was able to get approval to open this weekend.

Meadow Greens Golf Course in rural Austin posted to announcement to Facebook on Friday afternoon.

Owners of the golf course added that riding golf carts will be allowed, with a restriction of one rider per cart (unless golfers drove to the course in the same vehicle).
