Spring Snow Event
The Forecasters were calling for 1-2" of snow last night. This is surely not unusual for Minnesota, but after a long snow covered winter, just not what many of us had in mind for the month of April. It hasn't been a great opening week, weather wise it's been cool and cloudy. The extended forecast shows temperatures barely making 50 degrees. For those courses with winter damage to their fine turf areas, this weather is not conducive for aiding turf recovery. Patience will be needed for the Superintendents and golfers alike and hopefully May will provide us with some warmer conditions.
