Course Opening

The last 2 days have made us anxious for spring. Starting today, the temperatures will turn more seasonal (cooler) and the 10 day forecast is for highs in the 40's and lows in the 30's and 20's.

The turf continues in dormancy, with snow cover in many areas and pockets of frost still in the ground.

We will evaluate the golf courses for opening at the end of next week. The North Course is open to the temporary greens, you can walk at any time but there will be no carts allowed. The South Course will remain closed until at least the 1st of April, if not later.

We will be removing the covers on the South greens today. The turf on the South greens looks great with minor mechanical damage from the snowblowers.
