This Winter just does not want to go away.

Today it started to snow and more is expected this afternoon and evening. It is a good thing bad thing. The snow will keep tender young plants moist. That is important because we do not have our irrigation system in operation at this time. However, the cold temperatures will keep the grass from growing.

Conditions are still day to day. Looking at the greens yesterday they seem to be coming along all be it, very slowly. Even with the bad weather we continue to keep busy. We are making new tee markers out of concrete and vermiculite (so there not so heavy) they should fit our "Rockland Motif". We will work on them as time allows. Our full staff is budgeted to return the first week in April. At the same time we should be able to get sod and finish our tees. Keep checking back, conditions and plans can change fast this time of year. Mother Nature still holds all the cards. We had a new addition to the Greens and Grounds crew. Sophia Hunter was born this past January to our assistant Peter Hunter. Peter and His wife Lenka live above our maintenance facility. Everyone is doing fine.
