Golfers haven’t really had to pack their clubs away for the winter. The warm, dry weather is making conditions ideal hitting the green. Bob Baber is the golf pro for the city of Omaha and he says the golf courses are open and very busy. He says there is basically a window of about three hours where he tries to get as many people on the course as possible. Baber says last week when the temperatures hit 60-degrees there were people lining up to play. He says they had to turn more people down than they could accommodate and they were running out of carts.
Baber says the nice weather is helping to bring in revenue that was lost to a cold, wet spring in 2011. The final revenue figures for 2011 are still being tabulated so they do not know if fall and winter activity made up for earlier lost revenue.
