This Weather is Goofy!
Today it has been on and off snow. No accumulation but snow none the less. It really puts the damper on trying to get the course ready to play when the weather gets good. So here is my prediction.
We will have less that good weather. Which means we can not do maintenance. No cutting, no rolling, no blowing, no cup cutting…none of the stuff that makes the golf course a golf course.
Then…The weather will have a shiny sunny day in the upper 50’s to mid 60’s. Everyone will run out to play golf and complain that the course is not to the normal standards of Augusta National in April. Lest they forget two days prior the high temp was mid 30’s and snow flurries.
Such is the life of a golf course maintenance guy. See if my prediction comes true on Monday.
