HOBART -- The long winter creating big problems for area golf courses.
The Brown County Golf Course has had to lower prices because four holes are unusable. The harsh winter combined with the age of the course killed much of the grass on the grounds. Experts say it could cost thousands to repair.
"We opened back in April with nine temporary greens due to some severe winter kill. Since then, we've seeded into them and started to grow them back very slowly.
Course experts say the greens were in need of resurfacing being that they're 60 years old and get a lot of wear and tear. Now, that timetable may be moved up to start in June of this year.
