Minnesota's warm December beginning brings golfers to the course

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

Judging by Saturday's weather, you would have no idea it's an early December day in southern Minnesota, so some golfers decided to use that to their advantage. 

A rare sight to see as golfers were getting their last tee shots in before the sun went down on the gorgeous day.

Willow Creek Golf Course said they were busy all day and that the nice weather allowed them to keep the course open this late in the year.

The golfers themselves were excited to say they played golf in December.

"Good to see open for a nice weekend, we golfed in February and now we golfed in December so it was a good golf season. We had a nice Saturday and we should be out snowmobiling but it's nice out so we're golfing," said golfer Jason Vaith.

"Honestly it's kinda nice to get another weekend of golf in before it starts freezing, so I don't mind it," added golfer, Kyle Lawler.

A nice Saturday to fine tune the golf swing one last time before the winter weather hits.
