The Beaver Meadow golf range opened for the first day of spring on Monday. So golf professional Phil Davis brought out his daughters, Grace, 4, and Rose, 18 months, to hit golf balls at the range for the first time this year, in spite of the snow.

“It’s the first day of spring and we have decided to open the driving range for the day,” Concord Parks and Recreation Director David Gill said via email. “We snow plowed parts of the range last week and spring fever is here. We are going to keep the range open until the range balls run out – as folks will be hitting them into the snow.”
