I have good news and not great news to report. The plugs I pulled from greens 9 & 12 on March 8 have greened up and are growing nicely. The amount of ice cover on the course and the duration it has lasted are not good but it appears we are OK as of now, If the winter lingers a bit longer, that could change. I pulled plugs on greens 15 and 16 on March 22. By Monday the 25th, green 16 was growing out nicely while green 15 looked unimpressive. A few more days of growing and only a little bit of growth. I have concerns here. I am going out to take another sample just to make sure.
This is still winter. A year ago, golfers were playing at this time. What happened to global warming?
