|#11 green from 12 tee|
|Looking back down #5|
I have good records of various milestones throughout the season from the 14 years I have been here and I know that on average, it is roughly 4 weeks from the time we remove the covers to the opening of the course for play. The most important aspect of opening the course is that the grass be growing so that it capable of recovering from the wear and tear of golf. This means we need to have mowed everything at least once before we open. The last thing anyone wants is to beat up the course in the early spring and jeopardize conditions later on.
The long range weather forecast does not look great at this point:
Hopefully things improve quickly but in the meantime, we will continue with our spring preparations as conditions allow. We are fully ready and committed to getting the course open as soon as possible and will keep you updated weekly through this blog as we go forward. See you soon!
