Half inch of rain

Storms came through this am and dumped more water on our already soaked golf course and range.  We will be on paths today and a good chance on sunday.  The fairways were very soft to begin with, and just because there is no visible water does not mean that the soils are not saturated.  Traffic on saturated soils leads to heavy compaction and reduces the amount of soil oxygen that the roots of the turf desperately needs.  Comprimising the health of the turf in the early parts of the season may result in turf loss during stressful periods.
