Indy picnic tees are ok. Most of the paved pads are clear, and about half the grass ones are clear. A couple of grass ones have an ice layer. I wiped out on hole 12, which was the worst.

Anyone in Ann Arbor interested in picking up a shovel for cheap to keep in the trunk for tee pad clearing should stop in at the recycle center on Industrial ave. Plenty of experienced but still useful shovels for cheap, last time I looked. If you don't have a shovel, the tee pads won't get cleared, and none of us want that now, do we?

Long Tee's at Riverbends(Utica) in Good shape. Only a light snow covering but not slick at all.

Of course, they will be re-salted come tourney day if needed.

Tees at Grand Woods (Lansing) are clear, salted and ready for the Ice Burrg Open (1/2/10)

further HM info, a decent number of the shorts have enough bare concrete to get drives off

Hudson Mills teepads update: they are not shoveled but there is concrete peaking through on many of the shorts on both sides. the backs on both sides are pretty much snow covered. I went to the office for a shovel, it's gone, never saw it out on either course.

Not necessarily teepad related, but I just recently found a good snow cover map. It updates hourly. Click the snowflake, then Layers, Snow Cover.

This will be a helpful resource! Thanks for setting it up, whoever did that.

Tee's at Willow are very good. Shorts are clear, longs have loose powdery snow that is to clear.

The tee's at Indy couldn't be much worse. The Chuck D course has rough frozen puddles on each tee. You will have to play next to or behind them.
