I write this article after walking the golf course this morning to inspect conditions. Unseasonably warm weather and an overall lack of snowfall throughout the winter made this possible since in a “normal” year access would be much more difficult. My findings were very encouraging-I have never seen the golf course come through the winter in better condition. That being said, we plan on beginning work outside on the week beginning March 19th .
All indications are at the moment that this will be one of the earliest openings ever. We will just have to wait and see. The picture below was taken this morning on 18. The course looks as clean as I have ever seen it at this time of the year.
Have a great March and hope to see you soon.
