Weather and Course Condition Update for June 14, 2013

We experienced a severe thunderstorm yesterday (Thursday) morning that produced 1.1 inches of rain in a short period. Besides some branches and a few washed bunkers the course held up well.

Last night another 0.25 inches of rain was received with more showers this morning.

Fieldstone drains very well and is the reason we are able to have carts on fairways so soon after a rain. However, when additional rain comes on top of already saturated conditions this proves problematic. Fortunately our fairway mowers, in particular, have special tires that displace the pressure of these machines over a greater area thus causing less stress on the turf.

With a dry afternoon and some wind we hope to have carts back on fairways shortly.
