Rain is pounding the region this morning. We were already dealing with saturated soils and yesterday was the first day off the path. The rain is supposed to end around 7:45 and we will be closed for approximently one hour after this rain to allow putting surfaces to drain. These times are approximate at this time because, due to the lightning, we are not able to get on the course to check conditions. Based on past experience, a 9:00 start time would be my best guess right now. We will be cart paths only when we open, with a good chance that will continue into Sunday, as the forecast has very little wind with slightly humid conditions. Check back for further updates, Turf.
