Former Hillsboro-Central Valley golfer Tiffany Kozojed tees off on the second hole at Goose River Golf Club in Hillsboro in 2019.

The Goose River Golf Course in Hillsboro could open for the season Saturday if the weather cooperates.

Ryan Opdahl, president of the Goose River Golf Club, said Thursday that this year’s mild winter has left the nine-hole course in excellent condition.

The course survived the winter without any flood damage, which hasn’t happened in nearly a decade, he said.

“We took the green covers off last Friday and the greens look great,” Opdahl said. “We haven’t had any flooding of any kind so the course looks amazing right now.”

This summer could see a return to normalcy at the Hillsboro course after the global pandemic impacted a number of the course’s long-standing tournaments in 2020.

Last year’s Sanford Health Foundation Hillsboro Charity Golf Tournament was scratched due to the virus.

Opdahl said the tournament, the course’s biggest draw every summer, has been penciled in July 16.
