Spring snowstorms puts Three Crowns Golf Club off to a slow start


CASPER, Wyo. — Snowstorms and inclement weather in April and May put Three Crowns off to a slow start to the golf season.

“The reality is, weather has had a tremendous impact,” Three Crowns Golf Club general manager Matt Reams said. “Rounds were down substantially.”

Reams’ comments came during an Amoco Reuse Agreement Joint Powers Board meeting Wednesday, June 12.

ARAJPB is the body that oversees the property on which Three Crowns operates. Reams, whose role as general manager was announced during the ARAJPB’s March 20 meeting, said that making up for the slow start would be difficult.

“Considering the short season here, it’s difficult to see us doing many more rounds than what is planned,” he said.

Despite the late start, Reams said Three Crowns’ budget outlook is still in a manageable situation.

“It’s amazing how you can be that short on rounds but that close on budget,” Board treasurer Bob Chynoweth said.

City Councilman Bob Hopkins also sits on the ARAJPB board.

“Ten good playing days were lost in May,” he said at the meeting.

Casper saw a number of snowstorms this spring, including the second snowiest March day, according to National Weather Service records dating back to 1940.
