MIDDLEFIELD, CT (WFSB) -- Although it's early January and most golfers have their clubs stored away for winter, the balmy weather on Saturday allowed some players to get in 18 holes at Lyman Orchards Golf Club in Middlefield.

The course had over 200 rounds booked by 10 a.m. this morning, according to Outing Sales Director, Ashley Ogorzalek.

"All week the phones have been ringing off the hook. Any time there's a cancellation, within the hour it's filling right back in," said Ogorzalek.

Mark Laporte and his friends were one of the many golfers who took advantage of the unusual, but pleasant weather.

"I think we set up a tee time on Tuesday. We saw the nice weekend and said alright we got to make this early, so we did," said Laporte, who drove nearly an hour to play.

There are slots open for those interested in playing on Sunday.
