If we were in Swedish Lapland greens become whites, orange balls replace normal white ones and the greenkeepers, or whitekeepers, prepare the course with snow ploughs.
But alas, we are in the UK and the Beast has taken its toll, great for sledging, but not for golf. We hope everyone has stayed safe and is just waiting for those spring days without snow and freezing conditions.
Our first one day tournament was due to take place at Magnolia Park Golf Club Tuesday 13th March. However, there is the reality of the current impact of this weeks snow, the weather forecast for the coming week and to give the course time to shine at its best, we have made the very difficult decision to defer the tournament until later in the year.
Please keep an eye out for revised dates and fingers crossed for Gainsborough on Wednesday 21st March.
