HARRISONBURG, Va.---Several players went to a golf course on Sunday due to the nice weather. The number of people who visited the course helped Heritage Oaks make up for a slow winter season.

Nearly 180 players hit the links, which is not that common in April, according to Golf Director David Johns.

According to Johns, February and March were slower months because of the cold weather and the snowfall.

A thousand fewer players made it out to Heritage Oaks in March 2013, compared to March 2012.

He said last year, the weather helped the business. However, this year it has not been the same.

Johns said there are warmer days ahead.

"The play has been affected by the weather but I think we've turned the corner. Especially with a 70-degree weather today. We've had over 175 players today and hopefully we can keep that trend going," said Johns.

Johns said more people are also coming out because they're tired of being inside.
