Our goal is to keep the course as dry as possible. Drier turf is much healthier than a lush-damp turf. However, we have to deal with what Mother Nature throws at us. Golf is an outside sport and rarely are two days the same with the weather. Every agronomic practice that we implement is geared towards delivering firm playing surfaces. But the weather does not always cooperate.
We are in the middle of another cool-wet-rainy spring here on the North Shore of Chicago. With the cooler temperatures, the lack of sunlight and rainfall every other day, the course cannot dry out.
April Rain & Snow Days
When weather conditions limit the opportunity for the course to dry then the course will be softer for days after the last rainfall. The standing water and cart tracks exhibit this fact.
