Spring Outlook by Mike Kasner, Course Superintendent
After the warmest winter on record, we now have the warmest March on record! Even though the fall and winter of 2011 and 2012 were extremely dry, we came through with ALL positive effects on the grass. Mowing the greens six times by the 25th of March is unheard of in Minnesota. A March 16th opening is the second earliest in Wapicada's 52 year history. In 2000, we opened on March 7th. April 6th is our average opening date, opening on April 9th in 2011. Three weeks ahead of schedule is just what the golf industry needs!
This early opening should be good for everybody's scoring average and golf attitude. Please remember that we can always use help replacing divots and repairing ballmarks. Our goal is to offer you private course playing conditions on a playable but highly challenging golf course. If you ever have any questions about course conditions or maintenance, don't hesitate to call.
