Golfing delays, a local course prepares for the season
As the snow continues to slow melt, the start to golf season is put on hold.
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - “We wanted to get the tarps out before but unfortunately with the recent snow storm we weren’t sure how much snow we would get, so the superintendent looked at the grass under the tarps, right now the greens look really healthy,” Cheyenne Country Club, Assistant Golf Professional, Joe Chavez said.
Dampened greens and snow filled fairways provide delays to the start of the golf season for Wyomingites.
A PGA certified professional says golfers are chomping at the bit to get back on the links. So in the meantime they’re using other methods to stay sharp and practice their swings.
“A lot of people have their own hitting bays that they work on their game and get practice into.”
While courses thaw from the snow, Joe Chavez also says golfers have been making upgrades, doing a variation of different techniques while honing their skills for when golf has the green light.
“It’s a perfect timing for them to get their clubs re-gripped. We don’t charge for the installation just the new grips themselves. A lot of people are taking advantage of the promos while getting stocked up for the season.”
After speaking with another local golf course they said it may be another week or two before avid golfers and people who enjoy hitting the links can get back on Par.
