Rain, Rain, Go Away!!!

  •  

    OK, I know a lot of you who at this time of the year would be happy to have a chance to play right now. Living in the deep south I have more opportunity to play during the winter than most of you. This is not meant to sound like a complaint but for God's sake would it stop raining. We have had a little over 12.5" of rain since Dec,1st.with almost 5" since yesterday & more forecast for today & tom. It's been carts on path(which I hate) now for 2 months & it looks like it will be April before that changes.   Geezzzzzz

    OK, Thanks for letting me rant & I wish all of you up Nawth a chance to play real soon.

    The rain is one thing (I've got rain gear, etc. to cover that) but the thunderstorms that have been rolling through down here lately have been causing the most issues.   Plus, the courses have gotten a little soggy (and by a little, I mean a LOT, and that's on courses that drain fairly well).  I'm usually not one to complain much about rain either, but I'd love for it to go away and come back in July when we really need it.

    amen to that

    7.34" of rain  for the first 10 days of January & it's still raining!!!  Like GT said rain is one thing , thunderstorms & the fact that all the courses in town are just one big lake makes it impossible to even think of playing. 10 day forecast is calling for rain from Sat. till next Friday. Might have to go buy a wet suit & take up water golfing!! LOL

    Could be worse.  We are about 12" behind on rain fall.  It's in the forecast but always seems to sneak on by with just a brief shower.

    Stop worrying about the things you can't control. Worry about the things you can control. C'mon be positive.  Read the golfball thing GGG posted.  Yes it can be a drag. Plan a golf trip.
