Mother Nature extends golf season

More time for golfers to get out and enjoy themselves on local courses

THE LADIES NIGHT had a colourful conclusion to their season.




After the soggy spring, the dry and warm weather of recent months has been good news for local golfers, says Marty Smith, proprietor of Longlands Golf Course.

“Our rounds of golf played were way down last spring, but thanks to the great fall weather, it looks like it will turn out to be a better than average season after all,” said Smith. “At this time last year, we were ready to close for the season, but now, the course conditions are fantastic and we should be good until at least the end of the October and maybe well into November.”

The great weather has also been a bonus for many of the local groups who golf at Longlands, such as the Comox Legion, the Evergreen Seniors, and the gang from Ladies Nights who all have recently held their wind up events.

“It has been very busy catering to school groups and our corporate group clients in the past month with a number of wind up parties, tournaments and barbecues,” Smith said. “As soon as the golf weather goes away, we will be turning our attention to hosting staff and private Christmas parties in November and December,” added Smith.

It it good news for all local courses that many golfers are not yet ready to put away the clubs just yet, and Smith encourages everyone to get out and enjoy your local golf course while the weather continues to cooperate.
