June Rainfall

Weather is one of the most impacting influences on a golf course. A one inch rain today can affect the conditions for a week. A 4 day period of 95 degree temperatures can dictate the health of the turf and the agronomic decisions that we have to make for weeks afterwards.
Below, marked in red, is a list of the days in June that it has rained.

I realize that many of our members need to ride in carts to enjoy their golf. I take every measure to accommodate the use of carts whenever absolutely possible. 2010 is already recorded as the 3rd wettest spring in the past 82 years. Last spring was the wettest spring in the past 112 years. It is easy to see how the weather impacts our decisions on the course.
