2012 Season Underway

Last year this post was made on March 30th, the year before on March 25th.  This early start has certainly been unusual, but it is welcome.  It is always nice to get out on the course in the spring and start to prepare the course for the year.  Greens were mowed for the first time yesterday, and fairways will be mowed today.  Our hope is to have approaches and tees mowed for the weekend as well.

Yesterday afternoon we rolled the fairways to smooth the surface and get them ready for mowing today. Torres stayed late to get the rolling done.

With a stretch of weather like this, it is easy to forget that it's the middle of March.  We only have 3 guys on the crew at this point (and 1 is on vacation this week), so our preparations are being concentrated to the primary playing areas.  The rough will still have tree debris from the winter this weekend, and bunkers will not be raked.  On Monday we do have a portion of our crew starting for the season, with another wave starting April 1st.
