Spring Arrived 
Yes, Spring arrived this week, with a whimper!
Slight Frost on Tuesday morning, otherwise the Course was open all week, grass cut again,  Sanding of Fairways has commenced and great demand for Tee Times.  The extra hour of light in the evening allows for more play.  Everyone is looking forward to a longer day, but we have to reach Easter for the bonus hour.  Lots to look forward to!
