When are we opening?

With the mild winter that we have been experiencing, there has been some discussion of when the golf course will be open.  My main concern is the green's ability to recovery from the traffic that will result from the usage.  If the grass is not actively growing on the green, it can't recover or heal.  Therefore we will open the golf course after we have mowed the greens twice.  As temperatures increase and hover around 50 degrees, it will only take a few more weeks.  But if the nights stay cool and it consistently dips below freezing, the grass will stay dormant and we will have to hold off on opening the course.
