Yesterday afternoon we got some much needed rain (1.5 inches) in the form of several severe thunderstorms. While the rain helped the overall health of the golf course, and will expedite the recovery from this week’s aerification: it left the grounds crew with a lot of work to do putting the course back together. The sand in the bunkers washed out, leaves and sticks were strewn about the playing field, and several large branches were down that required chainsaws and loaders to clean up. Thankfully the staff has been working hard since before sun up and many of these issues will be resolved before the golfers get to them. Unfortunately, carts will be on paths only for the remainder of the day.
After being closed for a few days, it great to see the golfers back out there. This weekend’s forecast looks amazing for golf and for quick recovery of the greens. Thank you all for the support: please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
