The Slow Melt

The snow continues to disappear on the course. The recent warm weather prompted a nice, slow melt, and as of today, we are about 85% snow free. The slow melt helps reduce water on the course and it also reduces the chance of the river flooding. Overall, the grass that we have been able to see looks very healthy. We have some snow mold activity in the fairways, which should grow out pretty quickly. The greens and tees look great and we are very happy with how they came.

The Winter Thaw

The first late winter thaw is upon us. We will be flirting with temperatures near 50 until next Tuesday the 16th. With no significant rain being forecast in that time frame, it should be a nice gradual thaw. A gradual thaw will help with reduced flooding and decrease the probability of an ice flow dam on the river.  Also in this time frame, we should lose most of the snow that is on the ground. All good news so far. 

On the.
