Everyone get out their canoes and kayaks! Just about the only way you would be able to get around the golf course this morning after the rain we just had. In all seriousness, the weather in May can be unpredictable and recently we've had more than our share of storms. In the past 24 hours, we've had almost 8" of rain. May is historically the wettest month of the year, with just over 6" average rainfall, and we surpassed that mark in less than 24 hours! This is on top of the almost 5" of rain we've received thus far in May. To say it's been wet lately is a huge understatement.

and exposure of the sub-grade. This will require an extensive amount of work from our crew to get them back into normal playing condition. Typically, when we get an inch or two of rain, our crew can spend the next day putting them back together and we can move on to another task. This time it feels different. The damage so extensive that I feel we will have to completely remove and replace the majority of the sand on the golf course. This will drastically extend the time to get them back into playable condition. Several dump truck loads of new sand will need to be hauled out and placed into the bunkers. This process will begin tomorrow and could last all the rest of the week, possibly into next week. We appreciate everyone being patient with us while we work to restore the condition of the bunkers and please realize that a few other tasks will be deferred so we can focus our resources on making this process go as quickly as possible.
