The Glenwood City golfers participated in a conference meet last Tuesday, May 6 at the Spring Valley Golf Course.
They were scheduled to golf the back nine of the Spring Valley course on Thursday, May 8, but severe weather postponed that meet.
They were however back in action on Monday with a nine-hole round in Mondovi, which was played at the Valley Golf Course.
