It's been a long, lonely weekend for golf courses in Wisconsin.

No sooner have many in southern and northeast Wisconsin started to open than they were forced to shut down as a historic April snowstorm gripped the state. 

With double-digit snowfall totals throughout North Central and Northeastern Wisconsin as high as 27 inches at Weston, near Wausau, and no significant warming trend until early next week, it could be at least two or three weeks before some courses in Wisconsin are able to open. According to weather.com, temperatures in the Milwaukee area are not expected to top 50 until early next week and overnight lows in the Green Bay area are not forecast to stay above 30 until the end of this week.

Meanwhile, here are some of the December-like scenes from golf courses around Wisconsin as posted to social media pages:
