Winter Review & Spring Updates

Although the recent temps don't show it, spring has arrived here at Bucks Run! While this winter was mild, it was not without its worries. Around the first of the year, we had a freezing-rain event on top of our snow cover. This created a sheet of ice 2-3 inches.

Monitoring the Chippewa River

The Chippewa River winds through the course, providing some dramatic and enjoyable views. We monitor the height and ice coverage throughout the winter to prepare for what may lie ahead in the spring. With a fall and early winter that saw high amounts of precipitation, the river was much higher than usual going into January. The week of January 12th, the river was at or near bank-full along #17.
