There are signs that the nice weather actually wants to stay around, but we’ll see and hopefully, the phones will start ringing with the pent-up anticipation for golf.
I suppose we shouldn’t complain about the wet weather. I’d rather be here than on the prairies with all of the flooding there and I wish them well.
Here on the west coast, from November to March, it can be so dark and rainy. If there’s snow, at least it can be bright outside, but the gray weather can be a little depressing with the seasonal effect when you don’t get the change in colour or light, or have a shortage of Vitamin D.
The seasonal effect is a reality out here. I don’t know if it’s an actual state of depression, but moods are different in the winter, no doubt about it. When it’s gloomy, people just aren’t as upbeat and after five months or so, it does get tiresome.
It could be that’s the reason for people being slow to inquire about lessons, but I think once we get into a stretch of great weather, everything will be back to normal and the game will once again be back on top of golfers’ priority lists.
