Rainy Day's

What a wet June. So far this month we have received 3.9 inches of rain on the course. This is after the storms on the 23rd and 26th. Weather records for Denver go back to 1872 and so far this has been the wettest June since 1970. The normal averages for precipitation in the month of June are 1.3 inches. To bad we can't save some of this rain for July or August.

# 8 Mountain course after a downpour

We use five rain gauges placed in different areas of the course to judge the amount of rain we receive. Some times there is no rain on the mountain course but over a inch on the valley course. These rain gauges helps us with watering later in the week, some of the course will be watered and other areas will not.
