No it's not a joke. If you're in the London area and want to play some golf without heading south then you're in luck.

Tarandowah Golfers Club says they are open this week.

You can call 519-269-9656 to book your tee time at the course located to the southeast of London.

Multiple days of warm weather and rain and means enough snow and ice has cleared that the course is actually playable.

Below freezing temperatures are expected to return to the region by Thursday.
