We started our core crew members today with the first task being removing covers from the practice tee and the putting greens. It certainly feels very good to finally get this season underway.
Inspection of the golf course over the past few days (the snow is finally for the most part gone) revealed that we came through the winter in very good shape. Greens and tees are very clean while fairways had some snow mold damage but nothing severe enough to warrant much concern. Considering we had a heavy snow year with the golf course being completely covered for over 150 days we are very happy with the golf course and its condition. We are confident that we will be able to deliver a decent layout by the time we open in the next three weeks or so.
Setting a solid opening date at this point is not so easy with the weather being so unpredictable. While the early part of this week was very warm the forecast shows colder temperatures moving in which could make preparing the golf course more difficult. The best we can hope for at this point is for warm temperatures and no snow.
This month’ picture was taken today of the tenth hole from the tee. A quick look at this photo will give you a pretty good idea of how the golf course came through the long winter. We look forward to seeing you soon.
See you on the golf course.
