Frigid temps have hurt golf course business

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Temperatures that failed to make it out of the 40's this week also kept golfers off of the courses.

Frost remained on greens until 10:30 AM or 11:00 AM most of the week. With the sun out Friday, a few golfers ventured out, but earlier in the week the fairways were barren. At Flint River, managers say the cold temperatures kept even die-hard golfers away.

"The people that we consider die-hards, we have not seen those, but we have seen two or three people come out who we didn't not expect to come out and we think most of that is because people want to get out of the house, get away from work to release something and think about things," said Roy Snead, Flint Rivers Golf Course Manager.

Managers hope warmer weather this weekend will mean more carts out of the shop and more golfers hitting the links.
