Across the street, dark clouds hover ominously over Forest Akers East Golf Course, gusts of wind ruffle trees and pins alike and it seems as if the sky could open up and drench the fairways at any second. Players chip, putt and socialize around the practice green in between being fitted for clubs. It’s the only golf they’ll get in for the day, with downpours starting an hour later.
