It’s been a number of years since I can recall such a miserable, wet, and unseasonably cool spring. No golf was played last Saturday anywhere in the Northeast. And it appears that no golf will be played either Saturday nor Sunday this week as well. I honestly don’t know how a lot of public golf courses that are barely keeping their heads above the financial waters are holding on…. the economy has hit the golf industry extremely hard, and Mother Nature seems bound and determined to deliver the knockout punch to a lot of these troubled facilities that are desperately relying on every last golfer to somehow survive through this season.
So I will get up in the morning, walk to the window and look outside (if I don’t already hear the water gushing down the gutter drainpipes). I will most likely be making a call to my golf buddies informing them of the obvious. And we will once again find ourselves looking so very much forward to next weekend, only to be bitchslapped by Mother Nature again.
The vicious cycle continues, with no end in sight…..
