On January 16, we received mixed precipitation of freezing rain followed by three inches of snow. Subsequently, there is a thin layer of frozen granular/ice on the greens. Through many conversations with other private club Superintendents in south eastern Michigan, and the guidance of the faculty at MSU, ice should not be left on the greens longer than 30 days. The countdown began on 1-18-11.
Stay tuned for future developments.
