Opening Day today corresponds to todays date 4/3/21. Not that it is short sleeve weather but we are open for play. Frost delay and frozen greens I guess can be expected for early April. The forecast for this week is looking better for some golf. Work continues on filling stump holes. We will be aerifying tees this week and continuing course improvements. Spring is on the way.

Large temperature swings has March being March. Last week was great, this week is cold. Next week's forecast is more seasonable. Hope they are right. Spring clean up is well under way. Greens and tees have been blown off and we have started fairway and rough clean up. All branches and left over leaves are being removed. We have our fair share of Goose droppings to clean up also. Great to see some of the guys returning again. It's been a long winter. More staff is expected to return next Monday and a couple more to start in April. Our goal next week is to aerify our greens using small holes (3/8") followed by approaches then tees. We also will start preparing bunkers. Planning on an April 1st open date. Given good weather between now and then we should be able to present a good golf course. No April fools here..
Tony, Adonis, and Louis. keeping warm with spring clean up. Don't put away the winter coats just yet.
Work continues with stump clean up. Once debris is removed we will need to fill in the holes, then sod.

We are going to open April 1st. The last couple of days have been beautiful but not quite enough to completely open the course. We have taken advantage though and continued our stump clean up.

Following one of the snowiest February's on record has us on hold heading into March. I feel like I'm paying more attention to the long range weather forecasts trying to make plans for staff returning and course openings hoping for more of those 50 degree days. Do I dare say 60? Right now we continue to be on hold.
One thing for sure, spring will arrive at some point. After this year we are all suffering from Covid Cabin Fever and it will be great to get back on the course. Stay tuned.......
