The Overview

Now this is better April weather. Warming nicely. Roads are clear – not a reason to travel but good to know. The pollen and UV indices are creeping up there. The ground is warming nicely – just about warm enough to plant seed in spots we will need it. And we are cutting greens. Fairways are next – but still too wet. The course will open with heavy restrictions on how we play. We will be outlining this shortly as to how the public protocols will be applied here. Think early May. Think walking. Think golf.
It is getting tougher to stay at home. We know this. We are trying to work with the provincial government to get courses open at some point in the near future. Think May 10th – 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!

Our opening temperature starts at -7C(FL -7C) with some frosty sunshine. It will rise to 8C (FL 5C) in the afternoon and then cool to 3C (FL -1C) overnight. The moderate weather is arriving.
The winds are out of the SW starting lighter and rising to 17kph this afternoon and into the evening when they will quiet. They will start from the SW tomorrow in the 15kph range with their feed swinging to the NW which will chill the temps early in the week ahead.

Road report – I spy with my little eye one plow….and that says it all. Will this be the end of the need fore a road report? We hope to replace it with a Fairways report soon.

Course Update

Back into the golf-teasing weather. It will be moderately warm today, but we expect the phone to ring with the odd question about when we might open. Think early May for 2 reasons – conditioning and health guidelines. They are running congruent testing and we should be good to go about the same time as last year – hopefully with better weather!

Golf is close. And if you order now, you can have your new ProV Golf balls fore your first round. Otherwise, it will be a later round. Yes – the 443 offer from Titleist is here and we are ready to take your order. It will get you one step closer to the first tee – which we think could be early May.

Course Wildlife - not the ones on the carts!

Golf courses are a nature preserve where we get all sorts of animals cruising about. You never know what you will see – keep the camera ready! With the ponds just about clear of ice, these birds are back and it is wonderful to see!!

The Dogs

Hendrik likes this view. He is loyal and stays around home. He keeps our Cortisol (stress levels) in check and fore this we are grateful. With the ponds now open, he is quite happy to watch any activity on them.
