We're fresh off the first green committee meeting for 2013 and are being asked the age- old question: "When will the golf course be open?" Rather than bore you with agronomic jargon, I feel compelled to assure our members that we are just as anxious as you are to get out there. Your enthusiasm for the game and excitement for the 2013 season is contagious. With several inches of snow still on the ground and the Principal Charity Classic just 84 days away, we are absolutely itching to get outside.
Simply put, the course will be opened when it is ready. We've obviously have to get rid of the snow and allow the ground to thaw and firm up. When conditions are right, it will not take us long to open.
For us, this is the calm before the storm. Once we crack the seal on the 2013 season, we will likely be working long hours in preparation for the tournament. We will keep you updated on opening day, ongoing projects, and progress made throughout this spring.
