There were patches on snow around the course but the ground was dry enough to allow golfers and carts. Kilkarney Hills owner Pat O'Malley said the course hosted around 75 golfers the day after Thanksgiving and 80 more New Year's Eve and hopes to remain open until at least Tuesday, Jan. 10, weather permitting.
