Green is Good

  |   Newsletter

Everyone knows that Ireland is green – the Emerald Isle, etc. But how about Minnesota being green? In March? Are you kidding me? Flying in the other day, I looked out the window over St. Paul and couldn’t believe it – as green as Ireland. That’s crazy.

We’ll take it. Last year we were buried under snow in March. When we did open in April, it never warmed up. I remember thinking it was no big deal, because May will be really nice and the course will green up and everything will be wonderful. Wrong. May was cold and awful. June was nasty until the 25th. Then, July was a broiler – record heat. That weather was not good for golf courses.

Fortunately, the mild winter was good for golf courses and this early Spring has been perfect. Not only has Mother Nature cooperated, but during the off-season we did some big-time course improvements. And just yesterday we completed the grading and sodding so that it’s better than ever.

So, we are green in March. And with completed course improvements. This year is already making up for last year. This is definitely the year to play golf.

Cheers,

Tom Abts
