Melting Snow

The temperatures soared to above 60 degrees on Wednesday and almost all of the snow melted in a single day. As you can imagine, the course is soaked and very soft due to the numerous feet of melting snow that we have had this winter. Sunshine, high winds, and warmer temperatures are the key to drying out the course so that it can begin to firm up.
The photo below is of Red #1 fairway. There is still ice on the turf.

This is a photo of White #1 fairway. There is still some snow and it is very wet.
