Sunny and 65, Wisconsinites enjoy warmer weather

BROWN COUNTY (WLUK) -- A swing... and, it's good! The Woods Golf Club opened Wednesday thanks to the warm weather.

"Nice shot! Yep, that'll play. Good one Pete," yelled a golfer.

Mark Siegworth and his friends decided to play nine holes.

"We've been golfing the last few years where we get together. We're all retired. We kind of retired all at the same time and we come out here, a great way to get together," said Mark Siegworth of Green Bay.

Before Mark continued along the course, he admitted, sun in the sky and a chance to golf this time of year in Wisconsin is rare.

When asked, when's the last time he golfed in February, Mark had said, "Never! This has never happened for us so we have been, you know, we're thrilled!"

While patches of green grass are easy to spot, remnants of winter still remain on the course. But, you won't hear Mark complain.

"We're going to take it in. We know what the weather forecast is," he said.

From Green Bay, we head to Bellevue where students at McAuliffe Elementary are enjoying the hula hoop and jump rope weather.

Logan Schaick said he's a fan of warmer weather and said he liked that, "you don't have to wear a coat."

At Voyager Park in De Pere, plenty of people decided to advantage of the warmth.

"This is the perch I caught today," said Chelsie VanLieshout as she held the fish in her hand.

Chelsie VanLieshout and her mom Toni are on their second day of fishing along the Fox River.

"I'm, as people would say, a hardcore fisherwoman and so it feels pretty good to be out here fishing," she said.

Chelsie's mom agrees, "It's amazing. It's going to be hard to go back," Toni VanLieshout.
