The scene on thursday wasn't much different from on Monday on the top of the course. This is the 3rd hole, and like most of the top 6 holes are north facing and see little sun throughout winter. The cold temperatures and low light levels mean it is always very slow to recover following snow.
Friday was a little warmer and we did see some thaw to longer areas of grass. However the greens were still covered in snow and frozen solid beneath. Even when the snow does thaw it will be some time before we see full play on the greens.
Lower down on the course the snow was less and work could continue.
We made the most of the excavator before it went back by digging out a small drain on the 15th fairway where we had a wet spot. This will be finished off next week then turfed when we order another load of turf for the new ditch.
