With the extended forecast in the upper 40s to mid 50s, the decision has been made to "TEMPORARILY" open up the greens during this break from Winter. Key word is "temporarily"; once the traditional January thaw ends and normal temperatures resume, the use of our winter program of temporaries in the approaches will return.
This serves as an opportunity to dust of the clubs and take a break from the cabin fever that we all are experiencing. Please keep in mind that the pro shop and all club amenities are closed during the month of January. Therefore, I ask that you respect the possibility of frost on each given morning. Using the 40 + an hour rule is a good way to deifier when to come out to the course. For example, if you see that a day has a high of 50 but the previous nights low was 36, then look at the hourly for the day of 50. If it says that it is going to be 40 at 10 am, then add an hour to that and 11 am would be a good time to peg it up.
Members of the Greens staff are on site and I am always a email away for those that may have further questions towards a good time to come play. At this point, we all know the effects of frost on the plant and the damage that can occur due to foot traffic, playing while closed is at your own risk and failure to comply with the above mentioned recommendations towards timing will be reported to the Greens Committee.
Enjoy the break and Think Spring!
