— Originally scheduled to open March 15, Brickyard Crossing Golf Course will not open for play in the 2013 season until later this month due to frozen conditions on the course.

The course could open either March 21 or 22 with warmer weather conditions, said Brickyard Crossing PGA Director of Golf Jeff Williams.

Opening day for the golf course will also mark the beginning of the 2013 season at the Brickyard Crossing Restaurant. Dining hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays. A weekly Sunday brunch buffet will begin on Easter Sunday, March 31. It will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Sunday.
