The weather is warming up and soon area golf courses will be alive with player taking their hacks. Pine Knolls Country Club in Knoxville is getting ready for the upcoming season. Manager Joel Arkema has been busy since last fall working on upkeep of equipment and keeping the course in good playing condition. Arkema says the course held up well with the hard winter we experienced this season. He says so far the course looks good, however it’s still a little soft for playing but should be ready soon.
