BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Some courses across the state were open for business on Friday, but others are still defrosting.
At Bangor Municipal Golf Course, the fairways are clear for the most part. There are puddles from all of the melting that has taken place, and that melting is still on-going. Snow remains on some of the holes near the woods. Upcoming spring weather, however, could wash that away quickly.
Course Superintendent Russell Bragg says they can usually get the course up and ready to go within a week, but they need help and cooperation from the weather, which is something they've been struggling with early in the spring.
He says one of the first priorities is to make sure the greens are cleared, then they will set up the course as far as putting out tee markers, cups, flags and the out of bounds markers.
