All of a sudden the forecast finally changed and there was a rain drop/snowflake on the weather forecast. Finally mother nature allowed me to sleep through the night by dropping down 4 inches of wet snow on November 17th. We recorded a melt .30 inches from the snow and I was smiling ear to ear! Time now to apply our annual snow mold fungicide to protect the turf for next year.
We still have a few project to wrap up to "put the course to bed." We have delayed our irrigation blow out till December 5th and 6th due to the dry weather we were having. We still need to bring in all the golf course accessories and install the 1.5 miles of snow fence. Yup, that's right, snow fence time!
