With daily highs around the freezing mark some days and a bit warmer other days, it's a precarious time for golfers.

Sheldon Reinhart, the general manager of Swift Current's Elmwood Golf and Country Club, said their closing date depends on how warm things are early next week.

"We're planning on covering the greens on October 22, 23, 24, so next week there's supposed to be a glimpse of hope for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday of being some nice days. But yeah, it's been a rough fall here with the snow and the cold weather and the way the temperatures have really dropped." 

Reinhart added the weather was solid for golf during the midpoint of the season.

"The year was mixed. We had a very rough start to the season with, obviously, the snow and the weather. We started about three weeks later than normal. And then when you throw in what's happened from the middle of September on, we had a really rough start and a really rough end of the year, but the middle part from May till the end of August was excellent. So those four months were good, and then when you're missing out at the start of the year and missing out at the end of the year, four months makes it a really short golf season."
