Lets Play Golf

Jose blew off the greens today.

Juan followed by rolling the greens.

Alex changed cups for the first time this season.

A few course accessories were put out.  It will take a week or two to get all ball washers, benches, garbage cans, tee markers, hazard stakes and bunker rakes out.  It looks like we can let carts out tomorrow and for the weekend.  Next week looks like cold again.  Be careful out there as we still have some soft wet spots.  If we don't get rain, we'll start mowing next week.  Everything should green up with warmth and some rain.

Flood Relief

Last week on Tuesday we received about 9 inches of snow.  Over the weekend, we added a little more than an inch of rain.  An inch of rain in July, no problem.  In mid March when the ground is frozen, we flood.  Jose and I had the pumps running for about 7 hours each day to get ride of the water.  In July, this would have soaked in.  Since we had cool temps, the turf should be fine.

RIP dad.  My father, Dennis Augdahl passed away yesterday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.  You will be missed.  I was able to see him several times the last couple of months.
My dad and daughter a couple of years ago.
I don't think we'll match the March 8th opening we had last year.  About 9 inches fell yesterday.  With warmer temperatures expected by the weekend, it should melt quickly.  I made my first order for chemicals and fertilizers today.  We'll be teeing it up soon.
