Spring is here! The temperatures are warming up, the snow is disappearing and my home course of Osprey Links is looking awesome. Spring has come a bit earlier this year and as a result we can still expect a few days of craziness….and the first one is today. The best thing about the rain, sleet and snow is that it will not stay and the extra moisture will not hurt the course. We just need some sun so things can dry up.
As you can see, the grass is still brown and the ground is very wet. But the 3 feet of snow is gone and brighter days are on the horizon! The temperature yesterday was definitely warm enough to play, but the course is not quite ready. I expect that the team at Osprey Links is chomping at the bit to get start preparing the course.
As mother nature does her thing and sparks growth on the course, I must remember that we are still 3 to 4 weeks away from opening day. Unfortunately, the golf bug just bit me and I excited get playing.
I realize this might not look like much, but when your season is a short as ours, getting on the course as soon as possible is a wonderful thing. Last year, our first 9 holes was on May 16. So beating that date by 3 or 4 weeks will be awesome! I just need to be patient and know that golf is just around the corner.
So, for now I will continue prepping for the season in my DIY training areas. Additionally, I will be able to step up my training because I will be able to enjoy more outdoor activities. Are you golfing yet?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
