Just when we thought Spring was upon us, Winter decided it’s not ready to let go of us quite yet. We were scheduled to open the golf course tomorrow, but with the 3″ of snow we received Monday morning, and the forecasted 1-2″ of snow tonight, opening day will obviously be delayed. We will make a decision onContinue reading »
Spring has sprung! I wasn’t exactly imagining it would come this fast, but after the winter we had, it’s more than welcomed. As of this morning, there are only small pockets of snow on the ground, mostly in bunkers and on North facing slopes. It’s easy to get excited about the Spring golf season and we look to beContinue reading »
We have reached what I would say is the middle of the Winter season. Has it been a positive or negative winter for the turf is the magical question?

We’ve groomed the winter sport trails today. Unfortunately the snow is becoming somewhat thin in areas from being blown around so you will notice we didn’t lay down a fresh classic cross country ski track.

The winter sports trails are open. This season hasn’t been the greatest for winter sports. Very little snow, a lot of wind and extremely cold weather has prevented us from grooming trails but if you enjoy being outside, seeing the golf course this time of year is wonderful. We have 3 trails groomed: 1 Classic Cross Country 2. Skate Skiing, Snowshoeing/Walking. All three trails are side by side. Please use the appropriate trail and stay on the trail at all times. The map below will keep you off the Greens, Tees and Fairways. Any compaction of snow from skiing, snowshoeing and walking can create ice which can easily kill Poa Annua grasses (Another topic for discussion in a later post!). There is a front 9 and back 9 loop all starting at the Driving Range Tee. Please put your skis on at that point and enjoy!
