Hot Weather -- Really Hot!!



The below says it all.  Over the next 3 days, our goal is to keep things alive.  This will mean water running during the day and slower greens.  Please keep the long term health of the course in mind and not how fast the greens are today.  CLICK the chart below to read more.  Stay cool and happy 4th of July! 

At Biltmore:
Since June1st we have had 0.63" of rain vs ET of 6.16" (a loss of 5.53" of moisture)
Since May 1st we have had 3.45" of rain vs ET of 10.91" (a loss of 7.46" of moisture)

Without the new well, we would most likely be running out of water about now.
