Like the other area golf courses, Meadowcreek has seen enough of the recent wet weather.
Grounds crews have been hard at work trying to dry the course for Friday's opening round of the 26th Annual Reines Jewelers City Championship.
"Well the course is probably going to play a bit longer than it did last year due to the rain," Meadowcreek Director of Golf Rion Summers explained. "There won't be as much roll off the tee. But everything's green. We're getting water in areas we don't normally get water so it's good for the golf course but it's been tough on the golfers getting out."
"Finally the sun's coming out so maybe we can get this place dried up and get some golf played."
The City Championship is one of central Virginia's top events and is one of the tournaments that make up the race for the Battle Trophy, given annually to the golfer with the most points accumulated in those designated tournaments.
Over 60 golfers are expected to make up this year's field, including reigning champion Phil Mahone, who has won two of the last three, and last year's runner-up, University of Virginia golf coach Bowen Sargent.
"It's one of the premier amateur events, it's an annual event," Summers said. "We're excited. We've got a pretty good field this year, we've got some returning players so we're looking forward to it."
