The weather is sunny today but the carts are restricted to the paths. Keep in mind we received over 3 inches of rain since last Saturday afternoon and most of this past week was cold and overcast. There is not much drying under the cooler conditions. We are also continuing to dry out after the last 10 to 12 inch snow cover of the golf course. The native black clay soils tend to hold moisture for an extended period during the cooler periods.

The fairways are dry enough for carts but the rough areas still have some standing water. Our concern are the wet areas where carts enter and exit the fairways. I am hoping for some nice drying winds today so that we can have carts on the fairways tomorrow. I monitor these conditions very closely and will get carts back on the course ASAP.
