Put away for the winter

Today the final greens covers were installed on greens 1,2,13,15 and the putting green. Prior to covering these greens we applied over 50 ton of sand on all greens. We have been trying many new techniques on the greens to combat winter/ice damage  that we have been incurring for the past few years. I truly feel like it is all a crap shoot. Roll the dice and wait to see what you get. Honestly, alot of the techniques we are using are old ones that have just come back around. Stay tuned for updates and pictures of what the winter of 2011/2012 brings us. Lets all hope for consistently cold temperatures with lots of snow and no mid winter thaws.
