I have brought my artistry indoors for the winter. Be sure to check out my "signature hole" on display inside the club. Chef Harry and I teamed up to create a centerpiece for the candy buffet.
Lastly, we are working on the ice rink. Please pay attention to the rink closed signs. The ice takes several very cold days to form. Breaking through the ice with skates on can puncture the liner underneath. Please have anyone who insists the ice is ready, "try" the ice with their boots on and not skates. That said, skates add an enormous amount of pressure as the weight of the person is concentrated in a much smaller area. This weather is not conducive to making ice quickly. Water has a very high specific heat and that means is is slow to cool. I will keep you posted as this week progresses.
Weekend forecast has temps above freezing again.
Have a safe and happy new year!

We had a bit of ice cover for the cross-country tournament. My partner can be seen below playing a fine shot from the hazard. Luckily we were able to stand on shore, the ice was not that thick.
The turf is mostly dormant now, brown turf has replaced green. We like to see the turf turn brown before the snow flies, as it assures us that the plant is ready to experience winter extremes.
Looks like a sight break from the cold this weekend,
