If there’s one way to describe this year’s weather, it’s different. What that means depends on where your golf operation is located in Canada.
Here in Southern Ontario, where I’m based, the season came earlier than usual, first with late spring temperatures in March that gave way to blistering temperatures that also arrived earlier than usual.
The problem is that much of the grass in this part of the country has turned brown, requiring more water and you wonder if golfers might decide to play less rounds with the heat and high humidity that hits this region.
Yet, GNN blogger Kyle German says British Columbia, where he’s located on the Lower Mainland, got a lot of rain in the early part of the season, just the opposite of what was happening in Ontario.
How’s the weather in your neck of the woods? That’s the topic of this week’s GNN Poll.
Compared to recent years, let’s say the last five, is the weather in your region this year having a positive or negative impact on your golf operation, whether it be through increased maintenance and costs that go with that or golfers just deciding not to play?
