The Overview

A bright start to the day, but the clouds are massing to the south. The SE breezes are moving the wet front ever closer. We are supposed to have a very wet mid-week so let’s enjoy today. The allergy meter is up there, as is the UV so a few precautions might help. Tomorrow will be light rain, Wednesday heavy rain. Enjoy today!
It is good to finally hear Ontario planning to reopen. Doug Ford speaks at 1PM today on this plan. The smaller provinces have gone first. Ontario has a bit larger problem based on population. But BC kept their courses open through the pandemic and they are ahead of Ontario in flattening the curve. Coincidence? Think May 5th – and find the online petition on Facebook to sign. The more names the better. The grass is green. In the mean time, keep an eye on your neighbour – especially if they are elderly (remember – there are more Canadians over 65 than under 16).

The Radar Never Lies!

Allergy Index

The Allergy Index is VERY HIGH as the temps warm through the weekend. This is due to Cedar, Juniper and hardwoods like Boxelder and Maple Alder starting to exhaust their Spring pollen.

UV Index

Course Update

The greens have been verticut, overseeded, top-dressed and rolled. All by Mitch – in 2 days. The right equipment in the right hands and it gets done. We want the greens to keep going on their own while we focus on the fairways prior to opening. The heat is coming. The rain is coming. Growing is coming…
