Stalled Golf from Wet Courses

While the Foot and Mouth crisis builds in much of Great Britain, wet courses and soggy greens deter most golfers from playing their golf.

This weekend golfers in the greater Edinburgh area should first check their course to hear if it is playable. Adding the amounts of rain fallen this spring to the record setting rainfall this winter, golf courses across the region are faced with temporary greens and limited play.

In Fife, Aberdour Golf Course reports a full playable course, but temporary greens are still in use on some holes. The course is effectively playing “very wet.”

In Midlothian, Broomieknowe Golf Club reports full play on a soft course.

In West Lothian, Bathgate Golf Club hopes to open their full course this weekend. Currently, they still have a few mixed temporary greens.

Around Edinburgh, it is wet. It’s as clear as that. Spirits of golfers can’t be bothered from the hassle of the weather. If you don’t like the mud, then go to the range, go to the flat carpet next door, or go to your local shop and dream which clubs will make your game better…when you can finally play! Good luck.
