It's been a hot summer for Golf, but the greens at Castlegar Golf Club are looking good.

Golf season is upon us, and so far its been a good season at Castlegar Golf Club, though high temperatures have affected turnout.

“In the afternoons, we were finding not as many golfers were coming out due to the heat,” said Braden Chown, instructor at the course. “About a month ago maybe we started really noticing it, so we put in a special starting at 1 p.m. every day except Wednesdays.”

The special, $49 for the green fee and a cart, has since been bumped up to 11 a.m.

Despite the heat, the course is in good condition: the greens are staying green and there hasn’t been any burning.
