Just another fine example of the benefit to our late season Milorganite application on the greens.  Here you can see the Milorganite prills suspended in the surface ice layer.  This created air chambers above the green surface all winter long and dramatically increases ice melt in the spring.

Finally got Mike back on the Greywalls course today.  We dug out the Case and fired it up so he could clear out the snow around the shop area.  The snow around the shop was still about 7 feet and over the man-doors.  Mike will spend the week shaving off snow on our maintenance access point so it melts quicker.  We  hope we can get utility vehicles out on the course next week for clean-up in select areas.  
The rain yesterday, last night and today is a big plus for softening the snow pack.

 Well the snow is starting to melt a little, you can now see the top of the ball-washer posts and hole sign posts on Greywalls.
This is a drift of snow on the path from #16 Green to #17 Tee on Greywalls.  It must be 15 feet deep.

Well here we are April 13th, 2013 and it is Masters Saturday
Last Year we were preparing the Heritage for Saturday morning golfers, this year my full crew has not started yet and I am still plowing snow.   

Marc is holding his annual Spring Masters sale in the Clubhouse this weekend.  Forget about the snow and come on in to check out the new golf equipment for the 2013 season.  You can watch the Masters (to see some green turf) on our new 50" TV's.  The Bar will be open and select food items will be available in the Kitchen.  

I feel the need to snowshoe today.

 We dug the snow out to the barn doors this week.  We can start charging batteries and airing up tires on the equipment stored in these buildings.  As you can see the snow is still deep!
The deer above found the only open area on the course (the knob right of #16 Green).  They are looking for anything to eat.
