February 2017...The Groundhog was Wrong

On Groundhog's Day, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow predicting that winter was going to extend another six weeks this year. His prediction couldn't have been worse... unless he had predicted the Cleveland Browns were going to win the Super Bowl next year. The month of February was very Spring-like with many beautiful days to enjoy the outdoors. At Beavercreek Golf Club, we recorded 711 rounds of golf during the month, nearly 200 more rounds than the previous record. The average daily high temperature was 51.8 degrees this year, nearly 13 degrees above normal. There were 11 days where we set a new record high temperature, including a day reaching 75 degrees. It's always nice to start the season on a positive note. All we can hope for now is the weather to continue to be conducive to golf. The table below depicts February weather data gathered over the last seven years. The weather station at WPAFB is used for data.
