Warm Weather = More Golf

The dry, mild winter has been a boon to golf courses around Texas. Here's an article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about it:

The number of rounds played has increased as much as 25 percent at some courses compared with this time last year.

“Golf is driven so much by weather, particularly this time of year,” said Nancy Bunton, Fort Worth Parks and Community Services assistant director. She oversees the city’s five golf courses.

From Jan. 1, 2004, through Jan. 12, 2005, the Texas Star Golf Course in Euless saw almost 36,000 rounds of golf. During the same number of days ending Jan. 12, that number increased to almost 40,000.

“We have had hardly any days when we were closed,” said Adena Wallace, the course’s head Professional Golfers’ Association of America professional. “The golfers sure are enjoying it.”
