Weekend of Feb 27th & 28th.

       Even with minor flooding from this week’s storm, golf carts will be permitted this weekend (Feb. 27th & 28th) on the golf course. We are trying to accommodate all our golfers with this decision, so we kindly ask everyone to stay on all available paths. On holes without paths, carts may drive on the fairway. Directional signs are not out at this time so please keep the appropriate distance from all greens.

In case you were wondering !

With the all day rain yesterday (1.6 inches) coupled with the severe thunderstorms last night I guess everyone at Whitemarsh Valley CC wondered if we flooded last night. yes, we did have some flooding but is was not severe. The picture above show's the grounds staff raking silt and debris back into the creek.
On a more positive note.... We may be open for play this weekend.

Golf course closed today.

     Due to the snow still on the greens on the upper holes and the remains of flooding on the lower holes, the golf course is closed today.
     The greens still have a significant frost layer in them as of today. The forecasted higher temperatures this week end has generated the interest in golfers but the golf course may still remained closed . This is because of the damage that would occur if there is traffic on a partially thawed greens.

Tree pruning by the 10th tee.

The "green vase" Zelkova's right of the 10th tee are being pruned today. Even though they have a natural upright growing habit, over the last few years they started to encroach above the tee space. They will be thinned out and pruned to give a narrower appearance.
