Afternoon storms with substantial amounts of rainfall has been the trend over the past week. We received 1.15″ of rain Saturday afternoon and evening, bringing the total to 4.3″ over the past 7 days. Greens are beyond their water infiltration rate and are holding excessive amounts of water. Due to the soft, wet conditions, greens will be backed off of for a couple days until they dry out. I do not want to put unnecessary stress upon them when it is only May. Other areas of the course may have to let dry before mowing as well to prevent ruts and scalping . Please continue using cart paths and extreme caution in your travels to prevent rutting up the course any further. Keep your fingers crossed and pray for drier weather ahead.
Thank you and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
