LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- The rain and snow over the past few days has delayed golfers from playing on the course. Players at Coyote Crossing can't even step foot on the course until the grounds are officially cleared.
The pond in the center of the course filled up from the rain, covering a majority of the ground. With the rapid weather changes over the past few days, the water has made the grounds unplayable.
Grasskeepers spent the day cleaning up tree branches and clearing golfcart pathways on the grounds.
Superintendent Kris Cotton said this year isn't like one they've seen before.
"The cold temperatures at night is what is really causing this," Cotton said. "The night temperatures are down to the twenties in the mornings when we come in, it's cold and it's tough but we're trying to get things done."
Rick Galey has been a greenkeeper for 44 years and said there is always work to be done.
"As long as you like mother nature and all the elements, it's part of the game," Galey said. "Hopefully we just put on an outstanding show for all the golfers."
The golf course restaurant and sports store are still open for business, but teams who are supposed to play this weekend will have to be rescheduled for a later date.
