One of the things I love to do while driving around the course in the morning is taking pictures. While on my travels to check out the course for things good and bad I come across a lot of neat things. When my camera is in the cart, which it usually is, I try and capture these things and share them with the crew and anyone else I think might enjoy them. Now with this blog I plan to share some of these things with you as well. This picture of a dragon fly I came across one morning is the first. It was just waking up and waiting for the dew to burn off its wings so it could start the day. Nature is such a cool thing.
As for the course and the weather and when we open, I know that's why your really here checking up on things... So far so good. If things follow typical patterns, we should be teeing it up early April. So far the weather has been great, and the snow cover since December 1st has been a very good thing. Now, however, we are entering that period when things will be thawing and freezing. This is when the grass can take in water but then have serious injury if it freezes up at night. A couple of things we can do to help things is make sure the greens are free of ice. When things start to thaw out and the water is flowing we will be out making sure it is not pooling on greens. By moving ice and snow obstacles we can keep the water from pooling and possibly freezing when things get cold again. As usual we will be doing everything we can to get the place in shape and ready for action as soon as possible. It's right around the corner.
