A couple of weeks ago, the GNN Poll asked readers when the golf operation they work for will close for the winter this year.
After the calendar flipped to October last Friday, it won’t be long until many Canadian golf courses call it a season as 15 per cent of respondents said the operations where they work will shut down in the first half of this month, with another 33 per cent saying they will close in the second half.
That accounts for a total of 48 per cent saying they will close in October, with another 31 per cent saying the golf operations where they work will let the weather decide when they close, so that’s difficult to predict. Early November is the target date for 21 per cent of respondents to that poll.
With so many Canadian operations preparing to close this month, September is the last month we can use to continue a series of polls over the summer that compares rounds played in 2021 to the number put through in the same month in 2020, the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
How would you describe the number of rounds put through in September at the golf operation where you work as opposed to the same month in 2020? Down? The same? Better or much better?
That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
