I’ve seen winters when I’ve predicted that we’re absolutely going to be open as usual in the spring and I’ve seen winters when I’ve said we are absolutely going to open late and we haven’t.
We’re barely into March and I can look at the ground right now and say we’ve got a lot of snow and ice, but once the weather turns, it can turn quickly.
If you look at golf courses that open between April 18-20, it’s a long way away. You can always change the date and I’ve got a wait-and-see attitude right now.
I’ve seen Mother Nature do some funny things over the years, so I’m definitely not predicting an early opening for golf courses in Southern Ontario, but I’m going to wait and see if they open at their usual times. We’ll know better by later this month.
A few weeks from now, we could very well be saying, `Do you believe how warm it is today?’
