Old Man Winter

Well it looks like winter is here but the calender says otherwise. This storm might go down as the Halloween Blizzard of 2009, and maybe even the 4th snowiest October in Denver History. The old record was 17.8 inches way back in 1923. Here at the Pinery we received roughly 22 inches and drifts over four feet! Believe it or not some areas in the foot hills received over 40 inches, WOW! The tennis bubble did fantastic throughout the storm, so I think we can breath a little easier when the next snow storm hits. We are also glad we put down our first application of snow mold fungicide on the greens earlier this week, as well as buttoning up the fairway drainage on holes #7 and #11. Now we will wait for the big melt off over the next week or so. In the meantime we will start on our indoor projects.
