Last week's warm weather did produce a lot of snow melt, but not enough to open the course. I was able to observe our new drainage working nicely and noticed an area to the right of the 14th green that could use a little more tile. Overall, the turf is in good shape. The greens that are clear of snow look clean of winter damage. The fairways have a little superficial damage but overall will have any playing problems.
The weather pattern looks bleak for opening this week when daytime temps will struggle to hit 40. By Easter Sunday though, the cold weather will be replaced by seasonal temps and I expect to open then. Stay in touch. Notices will be posted on our website and Facebook page when we will be opening.
