The Golf Course is Open Take II

After 12 days of melting from the latest snowfall the course is once again open for play. The supplies are being put back out on the course such as trash cans, ballwashers and tee markers. The GHIN system goes into effect on Friday so scores can now be posted therefore requiring a true golf course setup.

Fairways Being Blown Off

First Greens Mowing of 2008

Other preparations that have been made to the course are that greens, tees and fairways have been blown off removing the large quantities of Elk droppings that have accumulated over the winter. Additionally the greens have been mowed for the first time of the year. Even though we are not growing yet, mowing helps remove the desiccated portion of the grass blade and gives the plant a kick start towards promoting new growth.
