I called Joshua Creek driving range in Oakville this morning - he said if we get a few more days like today they would open as early as next weekend but if not it would be a couple of weeks still....

This is killing me - I already played two rounds last year this time

The old pro in brampton is open, managed to get out today although it's mats only at this time of year. Still, after a winter of hitting balls in an indoor range, it sure is nice to see the ball fly it's entire ball-flight!

I'm pretty sure nothing in Markham is opened yet. You're stuck going to the overpacked dome for a couple of weeks longer.

I figured as much, oh well I guess I'll have to take a drive to one of the places that are open.
