Will the golf season ever come? Usually around the playing of the Masters, courses in this part of the world begin to open up. It may be another 10 - 14 days before we open for play. There is still a lot of snow on the ground, especially on the holes in the woods. From what little turf that is uncovered, there are signs of healthy turf in the fairways but a little bit of damage on the greens due to ice. The injured turf is on the poa annua plants where the bent grass looks very good. I don't see any major turf issues yet, but I haven't seen all the grass yet either. With more snow forecasted today, all I can say is.........Yuck!
