"The last few weeks have been hit or miss with the conditions. The course is in great shape but the course is very soggy," the golfer said.
With the sun finally out Friday, Kofman like many others hit the links at Vermont National Country Club in South Burlington.
With more than 200 acres to maintain, the Turf Care Department has to be out daily working the grounds. But with wet weather the past three weeks, General Manager Chris Barron says they can barely keep up.
"It overwhelms the drainage system," Barron said. "We have standing water in our sand traps. Plus the standing water makes it hard to mow."
Vermont National is a members-only course. Along with disappointed golfers, they've seen an impact on revenue. Rain closed the course more in the past three weeks than it has in the past six years combined.
"It's very hard on our staff our members and has a real ripple effect through the dining room and other facilities when there's no golf which drives the club activity," Barron said.
The club has also lost out on guest fees and merchandise sales in the golf shop.
Just down the road at South Meadows condo complex, A Job Well Done Painting company was also working on its strokes.
"We're probably at this point a few weeks behind," said Bjorn Werner of A Job Well Done Painting.
The company has had to work on interior jobs the past few weeks because of the soggy weather.
"You obviously can't be painting or working outside at all, so we're behind. But days like this definitely help," Werner said.
Owners say the rain does help when it comes to staff. Putting a delay on jobs means hiring three new people to catch up.
Back on the course, golfers like Kofman hope the break from golfing brings good luck.
Reporter Gina Bullard: Do you think it will help your game?
Charlie Kofman: It's all mental, so, yes, it will... that's a good question! Ha!
Vermont National says it will take a week of sunny weather like Friday to bring this course back to its standards.
