It seems like we had rain in the forecast every day in April. Fortunately most of the rain showers that we did end up getting were in the late afternoon and evening, so it still ended up being a great month to play golf. It looks like the extended forecast is contuing to show the same trend, so be prepared to play golf even though the forecast might show rain.
The golf course is in the best condition that I've seen in a long time! The ponds are full, the grass is healthy, and the temperatures are phenomenal...it's hard to beat.
In past years, we have aerified the greens in late April, but this year we have pushed in back into June. This will obviously give us great putting surfaces for an additional month and a half. This should also help the greens to recover from the aerification much faster since the bermuda grass will be stronger with the consistently warmer temperatures in June.
We went live with a newly redesigned website this past week. If you haven't had a chance to look at it, CLICK HERE. It's designed to be more user friendly and better for your mobile devices.
