It's been several years since we have had a snowstorm like we had last week. I forgot how much snow can pile up in certain places as seen in the picture just above. It took us an hour to get this far on the cart path from the parking lot to #1 tee. We will continue to clear out some cart paths so that we can start to get around the course and possibly be ready for carts on March 1. That is still a long ways off so we will see what Mother Nature deals us in the weeks to come.
The top picture shows #1. As you can see all is white except the fairway and green. The second picture shows #9 green completely void of snow. The wind whipped all 10" of snow off the turf and deposited it in the rough or beyond. So all the benefit of a good snow was unfortunately negated by the strong winds. The turf only has 25% coverage and greens even less than that with 10% covered. That being said the turf still looks pretty good at this point of the winter. We are looking forward to getting back out on the course and starting up the golf season.
