Course Conditions (10.19.19)

10.19.19 (7:40am)
We avoided frost in most areas and are just now beginning our prep work on both courses.  We will delay start times to 8:30am.  There may be pockets of frost in heavily shaded areas. 

We will allow carts to cross both course at 90 degrees.

Ranges should be set up on turf at the cart barn and on mats at the hotel.

Today's forecast calls for temps in the low 60s, mostly sunny skies, and winds out of the southeast at 5-10 mph.

Thank you for your patience throughout this morning.

Tomorrow morning's forecast is for temperatures in the mid-upper 30s.  We may experience a moderate or heavy frost in the morning.  We will not know the true extent of a possible frost until sunrise.

As is always the case; we will make every effort to begin play as soon as possible.  I have included a link to a USGA article regarding frost on courses.

Thank you,
