Course Update

As you may recall, last spring we opened the golf course almost 3 weeks earlier than normal and daytime temperatures in March were in the 70s and 80s.  No such luck this season.  My how the weather makes a difference.

Each spring we target April 1st as our course opening date. This year we still have freezing daily temperatures and there is still some snow on the course.  These weather conditions result in a soft wet course.  Thus, we have not put the flagsticks back on the greens. I will keep you updated and we will open the regular greens for play as soon as we get some drying weather to firm the green's surfaces. Right now they are very soft.
I will be posting updates on this blogsite and my twitter account.  You can access and follow my course updates on twitter which you will find on the right side of this page.
