Winter watering

Its been only a few weeks since we blew out the irrigation system and we have only received a dusting of snow over the past 2 months.  To combat the dryness, we are out watering greens and tees and any turf areas we can get.  It is crucial that we keep the crown of the plant hydrated.  We utilize a 500 gallon water tank attached to our tractor and roller bases attached to pumps that draw water out of our ponds.  If we had snow drifts building up due to our snow fence, we utilize our track snow blower to distribute the snow over the grass to keep it covered and hydrated.  I have already done the snow dance (nobody saw me, thanks god) and we are expecting some snow this week. If the meteorologist strikes out again about the storm, we will continue to water as much turf as possible.  If we do not receive any substantial moisture by January, we may have to charge up the irrigation system to water the course.  Nobody especially my Irrigation Technician would like to charge up the irrigation system again.  If we all could do the snow dance, the grass would truly appreciate it
