It's been a long time coming but at long last a Grand Junction driving range is open for business.

Grand Junction Parks and Rec announced today that the Tiara Rado driving range is now open, though Tiara Rado Golf Course remains closed due to snow.

Golfers can at least get out and start hitting some balls for the first time in what seems like a very long time.

The Lincoln Park Golf Course and Driving Range remains closed, but is expected to be open by this weekend. With temperatures into the 50s for the next several days, all area golf courses and driving ranges will be prepping for the start of the new golf season.
