As you can see from his blog last week, Kevin Thistle was planning to shut down the golf operation at Coppinwood on Sunday after a “Tip and Tuck” tournament and awards night for club champions, etc.
By this point, it’s safe to assume that most golf operations across the country are either closed or maybe wringing out a couple of more fall days. As most respondents told us in a recent poll, they would give the weather they received in September either a birdie or par.
As always, you can click the “Polls” section in the top bar on the home page to see all results from past polls.
While we were asking about September back then, let’s widen our focus for this week’s GNN Poll. As Kevin points out in his blog, he would give an A to the 2013 season, which started off with rainy weather, he recalls, but finished on a strong note in the fall.
In other parts of the country, it might not be as positive, considering the floods in Southern Alberta, the effects of which are still being felt by some courses in the area. Courses in downtown Toronto were also affected by summer flooding.
However, let’s not just concentrate on the weather when grading the 2013 season. As Kevin points out, his members were supportive of the club on many levels, including the food and beverage operation and the pro shop.
When considering your grade for the 2013 season, ask yourself if your members or public golfers were spending this year in all departments of your operation. Did this season meet or exceed your overall expectations, or did it fall short?
Grade this season just like the report cards you used to get in school, ranging from A (excellent), B (above average), C (average), D (below expectations) to F (total failure).
You can vote below or on the GNN home page and, as always, feel free to offer your opinion on this subject in the Comments section below.
