Winter Bites North Texas Golf Courses

3 Apr

A cold winter with one inch of snow and five inches of ice during a 10-day below freezing temperature span had a negative effect on North Texas golf courses.

In May the PGA Tour’s HP Bryron Nelson Championship will be held at the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas in Irving, and they doing all they can to make sure the grass on the golf course will be ready for the pro’s. “The winter season was a little tough. We had a lot of snow in February. But we’re through that. Now that the sun is shining, we seem to be coming out of it very, very well,” said John Cunningham, director of golf course operations.

Cunningham has changed a few hundred square feet of the grass at the course, and the more experienced golfers are seeing the little difference. Though the grass is currently softer than usual, after some rain and sunshine the grass should be back to normal. It’s time to sit back, and let mother nature take its course.
