Course Open This Weekend

Still some snow and ice on the course. Here's what #6 cart path looks like today.

#13 cart path is ice.

We have applied ice melt and will try and physically remove the snow and ice before opening on Saturday. Expected opening time is 9 am with range open at 8:30 am.

#7 will be played from the forward tee as the tee complex is snow and ice covered.

The greens and tees have been blown off and work on cleaning of the cart paths is currently underway. Expect to see plenty of sticks and branches throughout the course. As mentioned in my previous blog post it will take us at least several weeks to clean the course up.

In terms of turf damage there is some disease on the fairways. Most notably on #5, #12 and #14. These areas should recover during spring green-up. The back of #9 green looks like it has some desiccation damage that we will address.

Finally, our seasonal staff is scheduled to start Monday, March 24th. This is also when we will aerify greens, tees and approaches.
