In November the parking lot was paved, the cart paths to the two first tees and cart staging area near the golf shop were also paved. We also upgraded the parking lot lighting to better cover the entire lot.
After we closed the course last fall I sliced all 27 fairways and some weak fairways on the old course twice. This will help break up the layers in the soil and allow the water and air to penetrate better.
There has been enough snow this winter to cover the turf from Christmas to now. This snow acts as an insulator to keep the soil temperature in a range of a couple degrees and not let them fluctuate with the air temperature. Fluctuations in temperatures of 15C to 25C can kill turf.
We are hoping for gradually warming weather to get rid of the snow.
See you in April.
