Winter Maintenance

There was a significant snowfall that fell on February 1st to February 2nd.  Approximately 8-10" of snow with substantial drifting.  The maintenance crew worked for 2 days to remove the snow. Snow was removed from the south maintenance building roof to eliminate weight (Photo).

Snow on the greens are substantial 12-16" in most areas on them.  The snow on the greens is acting as a good insulater, and ice accumulations at the the greens surface is minimal.  The drainage trenches will have the snow removed but the greens will be left alone with snow cover.
