Drumlins busy despite the weather

The Sun was out and the birds were chirping at Drumlins golf course this afternoon, but it didn't feel like the end of April. With the wind whipping around the course, it actually felt more like a crisp autumn afternoon.

When I went in the pro shop, Drumlins assistant golf pro Cody Endress was there. He said there were about 20 people out on the course. He told me he was surprised by the large turnout on such a chilly day, but said that compared to yesterdays awful weather, it was pretty nice outside.

"Once they get into the swing of things start playing if they have to take one day off, they kind of panic and think that their swing," Endress said, "they're gonna lose their swing or something so they come right out the next day."

SU Senior Albert Tirado was on the driving range getting ready to head out on the course. He says since classes are winding down and he's about to graduate, he's taking every opportunity to go out and play golf with his friends.

"It's a little chilly, but that doesn't bother us. Just out here swinging, swinging the clubs." Tirado said.

Walking around, it didn't seem like the rain or snow affected the course at all. In fact, the course looked beautiful.

"Its as dry as a bone" Endress said.
