LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Area golf courses are also suffering from the cold and snow.
A blanket of snow covering Forest Hills Golf Course in La Crosse has delayed the course's opening for the season.
Warmer weather allowed staff to work on preparing the course, but while the snow caused delays, managers hope they will be past winter problems once the snow melts.
"Snow actually acts as an insulator right now, so once this starts going, the frost is pretty much out of the ground, so it'll start sucking it up and it'll take care of it at that point,” said Forest Hills General Manager Keith Stoll.
This will be the latest Forest Hills has opened for the season in at least a decade. The exact opening date for the course will depend on the weather.
