January golf

When I saw that our Jan. 10 record high in the Twin Cities is 52 degrees, it jogged a memory. I played golf on Braemar’s 9-hole executive course in Edina on the date that the record high was set: Jan. 10, 2012. There were a lot of golfers out that day:

I’ve been lucky enough to play golf in the Twin Cities at least once in every month of the year.
