Golfers hit the links for warm last day

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The unseasonably warm weather had many out golfing.

Jones Golf Course in Cedar Rapids closed for winter today.

But before shutting down the course, hundreds hit the links.

Nearly 200 people were out on the course Sunday and almost as many were out today.

"To see 150 golfers out here and we've got guys out here in shorts today, in December, that's pretty unusual," said David Roe,Golf Professional at Jones Golf Course.  "It's pretty neat."

Workers say they won't extend the season because of the warm temperatures.

The course needs to be prepared for winter before it gets too cold.
