Clearing Off Tees.

Fortunately the weatherman was wrong yesterday with their Snow Fall Warning for Lac la Biche County. We received a light dusting but nothing too concerning. Today I cleared off Tees #2, 3, 4, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17 & 18. The rest were either clear or had next to nothing on them. If things continue as they are, the driving range could be opened for the middle of next week. For sure by Saturday and Sunday (Mar. 31) if Lance is ready to start working weekends. The back 9 still has a solid 20cm of snow especially along the shaded tree lines. Exposing the greens and tees now will allow the turf to recover sooner then later. Lets hope for a constant melt and an early opening. My next post will show before and after pics of the melt we have been experiencing.
