Opening when?

The Pro-shop has been getting a fair amount of questions on when we will be opening.  I can not give a definite answer on that.  Typically we don't know until 3-4 days before we open.  The rule of thumb has been to mow the greens 2 times before we open, allowing the grass to come out of dormancy before we subject it to traffic and injury from ball marks.  If we maintain this rule, I don't foresee us opening in the next ten days.  The temps next week will still be in the 30's and the greens have not begun to grow yet.  I will let you know when the course will open as soon as I feel comfortable with the weather.  Just a reminder that we do have temp pins out in the approaches on holes 1, 2, 7, 10, 11 and 12.  Feel free to get a few swings in when we get those 50 degree sunny days.
