Pheasant GlenYesterday’s rain didn’t do much to help our cause. The drainage ditches are full again, so the first part of #1 has gone back in time to three days ago. We’ll start our breezy morning on the back (no frost so far) and leave it up to you whether you want to play the front. Longer hitters can tee off from the forward tees and clear the puddles, and there’s always the option of dropping a ball past the...

Pheasant GlenLike yesterday, we’ll be starting on time on the back and your footwear will determine whether or not you venture out on the front. I’d recommend teeing off from the forward tees and finding a dry(ish) route next to the cart path to get you past the fairway bunkers. It’s smooth sailing from there. Enjoy your round.

Pheasant GlenAs you can see, the greens are in fact whites, and not exactly fit for putting. In better news, the course has made strides with the big drain of 2020. There’s golf waiting to happen. We’ll update later today if it rains but my gut says it’s a great day to be indoors.

Pheasant GlenWe’ve had some progress but enough to get too excited about. If the frost comes off the back today - and that’s a big if - we might be able to open the back to my only foot traffic late today. I have my doubts, though; it’s not supposed to warm up much. I’ll update at 10:00 when things play out a bit.

Pheasant GlenIt’s safe to say golf is not in the plans today. With so much surrounding land draining through the golf course it’ll take some time for the water level to drop significantly. I won’t even mention the frost and ice that are covering everything this morning. Perfect day to watch a football game. See you when we can.

Pheasant GlenI’m pretty sure yesterday’s 75.946 mm (2.99”) was the most I’ve ever seen on the rain gauge. Add the previous day’s 20 mm - not to mention the rest of the month - and we have ourselves one wet golf course. The fairways on 16 and 18 are impassable even on foot, so I recommend staying at home unless you need to break in your gumboots. Let the draining begin...
