Rain Delay

This morning’s wave of lightning and light rain have kept us off the golf course. Just like golfers, we cannot afford to be on the course with lightning present. We are currently in a holding pattern, while the system moves through. It’s hard to predict how long it will last, as we thought it was […]

First Frost Delay

We will have our first frost delay of the season this morning. It will prevent us from our normal maintenance to the course in order to get everyone out playing as soon as possible. It’s difficult to know how long the delay will be until the sun comes up and the frost sets in. Come […]
