Well, it appears as though we’re getting payback for our great 2012 early spring that began in February with 70-degree golf days. This year, we barely had any good golf days until May, and now, we’re already into June. Wow!
For the business of golf and for golfers, life has not been good so far this year. Let’s hope record heat is not the discussion of the day for July and August this year as it was in 2012. Golfers better take advantage of the good golf days this month and play often, just in case. The courses need your businesses, too, so spread the love this year and play a few different courses. Test your game at different venues occasionally — you might discover a few courses that will better suit you, and you’ll experience new challenges.
Plan now to attend the great events in or around Kansas City during June and July. The 7th Annual Watson Challenge, featuring Tom Watson, is back in KC, June 7 – 9. This year, find time to watch Tom Watson and many of the very best players within the area compete for the title of best golfer in KC. See more about The Watson Challenge on page 12 of our June issue at www.TeeTimesmagazine.com.
Share your favorite sport with your child during Take Your Daughter to the Course Week, July 8 –14. Local courses will offer additional special promotions. Contact your local course to find out what they will be offering. See page 36 for more information, and then play golf with your junior during June.
Til next time — Get out and play golf.
