It was a beautiful day to hit the links, but local golf courses say recent rains have slowed business.

Puddles remain in bunkers and along paths at Kwiniaska Golf Club after this weeks rain.

Bad weather shuts down entire facilities not only the course, causing money to be lost.

Golfers aren't the only people affected. Golf course director Mike Bailey says maintenance crews have to work even harder to get the greens back in shape.

"It's hard to get the mowers around. In optimal conditions they get around the golf course so many times a week. When the conditions are less than optimal, it's a lot slower, a lot harder for them to get around."

Bailey said one day of sunshine can help courses dry quickly, so golfers shouldn't change their plans because of a few days of wet weather.
