Update

We’re see some movement ( frost wise) so we’ll probably get going around 10:00. Looks like a week of this ahead. Kelly

Clear and cold

We have frost this morning and a forecast by the weather network for showers...I think someone has miscalculated the current situation and I don’t think it’s me.... I’ll update at 9:00. Kelly

Saturday

The clouds have kept the frost away, so it looks like we’ll start on time on the front. Play well.
  • February 14, 2020

Friday

We have some Valentine frost to start the day. If we get direct sun the delay shouldn’t be too long, so we’ll be wishing the clouds away for a bit. I would think that either side of 9:30 isn’t a bad guess for a start.

Thursday

The drizzle has stopped and some sunshine is rumoured to be on the way. The start will be on time off the front nine. See you out there.
  • February 12, 2020

Wednesday

There’s no frost in sight, so we’ll start on time on the front nine. Enjoy your round.
  • February 11, 2020

Tuesday

Front nine start this morning. We’re on the cusp of frost but if we get delayed it won’t be for long. Enjoy your round.

Chilly update

It’s still all white out here but the sun is peeking through, so an 11:00 start should be in the ballpark.
  • February 9, 2020

Brrr

Don’t get excited about an early round of golf today as we’re frozen solid this morning. We’ll update at 10:00 and see how things look.

Grrrr

Yesterday’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...

Friday

We’ll do it like we did yesterday: back nine start with no delay. The rain we had wasn’t enough to keep us off the front, so enjoy 18 holes of golf in February.
  • February 6, 2020

Thursday

Like 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.

That’s more like it

The slush has departed. The back nine will open on time this morning and the front may be playable for galoshed golfers later today. We’ll take that part as it comes. Enjoy your round.

Oh, come on

As 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.
  • February 3, 2020

Update

As suspected, the back is still frozen solid and it looks like it will remain that way today. Carpet putting is the order of the day. We’ll try again tomorrow. See you ASAP.
  • February 3, 2020

Slowly

We’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.

Soggy Sunday

It’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.

Heavy rain indeed

I’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...

Wet?

It’s hard to know what to believe sometimes: there’s a heavy rainfall warning for this morning but the radar suggests it’ll all blow by us in a couple of hours. Either way, the back nine will be open as the front continues to drain. See you out there...maybe.
  • January 30, 2020

Again again

15mm of rain yesterday so not much headway in draining the front. The back 9 is waiting patiently for your arrival. The start will be on time. Kelly
  • January 29, 2020

Again

It’s a blustery day in the 40 acre woods...more rain overnight so nothing has changed from yesterday. Back 9 only and the start will be on time. Kelly
  • January 28, 2020

Not yet

Another 10mm of rain overnight which hasn’t helped drain the water on the front. Good news...the back 9 is open and the start will be on time. Sunshine today. Kelly
  • January 27, 2020

Update

If the sun stays out we should get going 10:00ish....back 9 only again. It’s winter. Kelly
  • January 27, 2020

Sigh

If it’s not one thing it’s another...we have frost. I’ll update at 9:00. Kelly
  • January 26, 2020

Slight change

Some improvement but still a no go on the front. The back will be open at the usual time. 16 will play shorter today with the favourable breeze. Kelly
