Golf Course Maintenance News & Live Updates from @stowacresturf

Opening Day…

Leave a comment

Well, opening day here at Stow Acres was certainly not as sunny as we would have liked it to be.  We even had some snow flurries this morning, changing over to hail, and now almost accumulating 0.25″ of rain in 4 hours.  The South Course was officially open for play today, with hopes of opening the North Course by the weekend.  Both courses are relatively dry for this time of year, but we will remain walking only until further notice.  We were able to get the bunkers raked and the majority of the immediate playing areas blown off and cleaned up.  Cups are cut, tee markers are in place, and the South Course is clean.  Check back soon as I will continue to give an update on opening the North Course.  See you on the course!
