Golf Course Update...

The challenge continues....We were fortunate enough to have a few great days of weather...but that has ended quite abruptly! Cold, rain and now SNOW have hindered our progress on preparing the golf course for play. During the 4 day warm stretch we were able to mow greens, roll greens, mow collars/approaches, mow fairways, open the Practice Range, rake bunkers, pressurize the irrigation system, fertilize greens, continue clean up and grind all remaining stumps from our winter tree management plan.

What we need now is mother nature to step up, warm up and provide some more sunshine to help things grow.

However, with the help of our team plugging, covering, fertilizing and watering we are seeing some recovery already. This leads us to believe that once consistent spring weather arrives for good, recovery will be accelerated. Please follow along with this blog as we prepare the golf course for another great season...here's to a warm and sunny spring!
