Against my better judgement I opened the course this morning. I was surprised at how dry and firm some areas were after the 2.44' of rain last night. Clearly the frost has broken in some areas. Unfortunately the areas it has not is the mostly greens and bunkers. They were saturated and had standing water on and in them respectively. So we are open for play for the first time in 2018 albeit walkers only and on temporary greens.

It has been very windy all morning with some sun but not much. the forecast is for temperatures to plummet to below freezing so any moisture around will lock up yet again. Hopefully the remaining frost in the ground breaks and the turf can dry and firm up before that happens. Otherwise we will be on this cycle again when the temps climb back up.
