It’s November, many parts of Canada have seen their first snowfall and temperatures are plummeting. It may not be winter officially, but who cares about the rules when it’s dark and your car won’t warm up as quickly as you’d like?
With that in mind, this will be the last time in 2020 that we ask readers about the number of rounds put through at the golf operations where they work.
That’s a question we’ve been asking in the GNN Poll all summer after it became apparent that rounds played were increasing compared to previous years due to other recreational activities being shut down due to the coronvirus pandemic.
Golf, on the other hand, was deemed a sport in which participants could safely distance themselves from others.
Just a month ago, readers were asked to describe the number of rounds put through in September at the operations where they work, compared to the same month in previous years.
A strong majority, or 82 per cent of respondents, said their September rounds were the most they’d ever seen, with 13 per cent saying their rounds were about the same and five per cent saying their rounds were lower in September.
With fewer daylight hours and dropping temperatures, October rounds were likely fewer than they were earlier in the summer, but this is a comparison with the same month in previous years.
So, how would you describe the number of rounds put through in October at the golf operation where you work, compared to the same month in previous years?
