Spring is ALMOST here…

A.J. Dereume holds Punxsutawney Phil after he did not see his shadow Saturday on Groundhog Day.Did you hear the results of groundhog day? Punxsutawney Phil, the famous groundhog, came out of his burrow and apparently did not see his shadow, which means spring should be coming early… Unfortunately, the forecast is showing otherwise. Well, we can’t always believe the prediction of a rodent.

Although, with the weather’s current state lately, it may seem like the green is so far away, but in fact, it is just centimetres under that snow. The spring will come and so will that sun, the snow will then melt away and we too can have fun golfing once again. Whether the spring does miraculously come early or not, we need to be prepared…

This winter you may be watching highlights from the PGA tournament, visited Palm Springs just to practice your backstroke in our off season or got a brand new complete golf set for Christmas that you just cant wait to get on the green.
