THE UNOFFICIAL OFFICAL OPENING DAY!!

Our opening day for the golf season is a month or so away but the "UNOFFICIAL" opening day is today.   So far mother nature has been good to us. We opened the entire course with flag sticks in greens.   The Pro-shop is open for business so carts are available.  It is cart path only, but hey its February.  The Club House is also open for the afternoon lunch crowd.  Not a bad start to the season.

Flag sticks in greens for the first time in "17" 
Worm mounds or castings can cause poor lies in fairways.  
 
Last week we had some really dry weather and the castings dried out.  That gave us the opportunity to drag them breaking them up and returning them to the soil  If they are wet or moist they just turn to mud.  If carts ride over them they "pancake" and can smoother the turf.

Here you can see the difference.  The left side of the picture has been dragged.
