Flagsticks In

The flagsticks are in the greens. Don't let the sunny blue sky in the photo fool you. It is 33 degrees and sunny but it is very cold today on the course. Keep in mind that it will be some time before the turf begins to actively grow. It will begin to green-up but will not really begin to grow until the soil temperatures reach the high 50s or low 60s at a 2 inch depth.
The course is still very wet from the melted snow and will be slow to dry out until the daytime temperatures climb into the 60s and 70s. Please check with the golf course condition line or the Golf Shop over the next few weeks if you plan to play golf. Any significant rainfall amounts, excessively cold temperatures or prolonged frosts could affect the opening of the golf course. See you soon.
