    WOW--this thread is killing me Heading out tomorrow to the Nations---my regular 4some. It will be the company that will keep me going---will probably have to resort to "you did not see that" and "do I get a do-over?" What the hell--my grass is cut-no dandilions and it's supposed to be 20 degrees
    Does the 2nd hole-n-one come easier ?

    Hard to find dry courses, nothing worse than losing a plugged ball in the fairway.

    Played Greensmere Legacy yesterday, best greens I've played thus far this year. Fairways were quite wet, but quite playable (only 1 or 2 plugged balls). Carts on cart paths only and in the rough so it wasn't too bad. Very little/no winter kill on the greens and the same for the fairways. After having played Prescott a month ago (wet, but the greens were decent but probably not up to their regular standards for early season play), the Canadian about 3 weeks ago (bumpy greens but the fairways were playable but a bit wet/soft, carts were cart path only), the Meadows two weeks ago (fairly wet but playable, greens were bumpy), and Stittsville this past weekend (no comment.....I suggest they review their current fee structure for the conditions of the course as there was LOTS of winter kill on the greens and the fairways...not to mention the tee boxes), my early season dollars go to Greensmere. All in all, given the winter and spring that we've had, this is no big surprise. At the end of the day, we make a choice to get out and play a game that less than 1% of the world's population gets to play so in the grand scheme of things, it's not so bad.
    Few things in life help you find sanity in the process of losing it. Golf is one of them.

    Meadows was a little rough last week. Fairways and greens have a fair bit of winter kill. Course was cart path only with some wet spots. No temp greens though
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    Was out at Pineview on Monday. Made frequent use of ball retriever... in the fairways...Greens are struggling mightily.
    the Sunday overnight sure rain didn't help. Brutal..
    Played Gatineau on Friday(with cart) plenty of puddles in the fairways and the cart paths had washed out spots and major puddles.
    greens.. struggling, not much grass.
    Mapleview last Saturday May 11th was in best shape of all courses I've played so far that includes Canadian (coming along nicely) and Cedar Hill (spotty fairways and temporary greens)

    Iroquois was wet this weekend, but still playable with slow greens. They did tell us upfront that the course was very wet, so no real complaints from me. I will be back there later in the year (as usual) when it's drier!

    I would say we are a month behind where we should be. I feel bad for the course owners as this will be a tough year. I hope we have a long Summer that stretches into January.....

    Played Dragonfly today, and it's quite good. As expected, #9 is a swamp ... well that's an exaggeration, but it's darn wet. A few other holes had areas roped off to carts, and some squishy areas, but overall quite dry and good. Fairways had bad areas, but again, pretty good.

    Greens were quite good overall with only a couple of greens with any significant winter kill. No temporaries.

    Overall, in good shape, and as long as they don't get any more serious rain deluges, it should be back to normal pretty quickly.
    You always hit a good shot on 18 to keep you coming back.
