1st Day of Carts - Wettest April on Record

Today we are allowing carts on the course.  Even with all the rain, things are starting to dry out and the turf is begining to grow. Please be careful around trees where the rough is typically thinner as it can still be soft.  We have set the record as the wettest April ever in Chicago and the coldest in the last 17 years.  But it looks like spring is coming and the weekend looks great!

Rolling the peat - the peat is very soft and bumpy in the spring.  This large roller is filled with water to help firm and level the peat.  Just about done for this year.
