The sun is shining, and the golf clubs are swinging.

One Calgary course has decided that February's unusually warm weather means it's time to tee off.

Fox Hollow opened Tuesday, allowing golfers to take advantage of the lack of snow on the course. 

"This is probably the earliest I've ever golfed in Canada," said Devon Seiler before he teed off. "February is pretty early for up here."

"You get a few more swings in before the year starts," he added.
