Time for business: Many shops, outdoor destinations live for daylight saving time
By Hannah Mitchell CHARLOTTE — Every March, they emerge from their homes and offices like bears awakening from a winter’s rest: an army of golfers itching to get back on the course. Woody Allen, golf director at Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge, knows their patterns well. In fact, he can plan his calendar around the upswing. Daylight saving time, a forward switch of American clocks by one hour, gives golfers and others an extra hour of daylight in the evenings that they don’t have during the winter. An hour may not seem like a lot, but many businesses anticipate the change as much as retailers look forward to Christmas. “I love and live for the day that daylight saving time comes,” Allen said. “During the winter time, you can only play golf, typically, in the morning. If you tee off after lunchtime, you can’t get in 18 holes. It kills our business.”
