Spring is in the Air! Well, Sort of...
A note from our superintendent, Ryan VerNess When Punxsutawney Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter, boy was he onto something. We should have known it was going to be weird, when back in December we had 3 days in the 60s, a thunderstorm that brought 2 inches of rain, and dropped to 0 the next day. It was super cold throughout the winter, and now it is the winter that won’t end. When we started to get anxious, we started to get on the course…as much as we could. We had a hard time getting around because of all the snow. So, when in Rome, we used a snowmobile. Pulled a sled around with our snowblower and tried to get some greens cleaned off.
We did what we could, but it just kept snowing. We are starting to see some of the effects of a long winter..
However, not all signs are bad…all the plugs we check, we are seeing white roots on the bottom, which gives us hope that the damage that we are seeing is mostly cosmetic.
The great Tom Petty said it best, “The waiting is the hardest part”...so here we are waiting. Crews are ready to go...get out there to get the course ready to go, as soon as possible! As always, we look forward to seeing you on the 1st tee and keep it between the trees. -Red
