HM Update: Original shorts are clear, but all the other pads are under an slushy/icey mix. A couple of warm days with sun should do the trick. Fairways are squishy, slushy, and still icey in certain parts.

*Lakeshore* - Shorts on back 15 -18+letters are spotty. Some pads clear and good, some with only a spot for a stand-still and some just completely covered. Bring Shovel and salt if you can.

Anybody know how the pads look at rolling hills? Were they cleared for church league last Sunday?
Ben Calhoun March 5, 2013 at 7:57pm
Lakeshore- all but a few (15,16 for some reason were completely impossible to shovel) of the original 24's short pads are clear now. Most longs untouched. Should have them done for Saturday's tournament.

Lakeshore seems mostly shoveled- the PDGA league did the longs the other day, not sure if 18 or more than 18, and I gave the shovel to some people this morning and it appears they shoveled all the short tees!

Anyone with updates following the recent snowage? Hope it gets cold tonight so at least it will be a dry round tomorrow.

Jerry Cyr, the Park Operations Manager for Delhi, Dexter-Huron, Hudson Mills & Huron Meadows Metroparks, was nice enough to get back to me regarding the course and the tee pads in the winter time (see my post regarding the email I sent him a couple pages back). He said that for the league members that play out there (A3, etc.) are welcome to use their in house shovels & salt anytime, just remember to return them. Better than nothing I say - looks like asking nicely paid off. ... more

So if you're an A3 member and you go out to play in a group (includes myself) and the pads are a wreck, please do some work! We usually make it fun, and have the person who shot the worst in previous hole drag the "shovel and salt of shame" (i.e. they clear the pad and carry the shovel, and yes trash talking does ensue).

RH shorts in better shape now due to added (environmentally friendly per Foz's recommendation) salt. Only had a quart jar of salt so some tees in back woods portion only have 2 good steps or half a tee. There is also a community shovel on the 1st tee, a good quality one, thank you Foz.

rolling tees like they are most winters. front half cleared. back side icy; would require salt and some serious labor

Bandemer is a nightmare. Had I had the means to clear it I would have but I played left if pad to keep it classy. Fairways are decent but pads need shoveling and sega salt.

Lakeshore- shoveled and salted 1-18 short totally clear. 1-9 long shoveled, no salt, clear though.

Indy was in good shape shorts and long (except some longs on extras) when we left on Sat aftn.
peter kunoff December 31, 2012 at 7:47am
happy to see this still being used despite my winter hibernation
Ben Calhoun December 30, 2012 at 4:56pm
Front 9 Lakeshore long and shorts shoveled- only #7 was bad after (packed down), will salt tomorrow if no snow
Rolling Hills- short shoveled but half covered in icy prints, not salted, longs all but a few shoveled and in better shape than shorts
Sean Newland December 30, 2012 at 4:01pm
Water Works(Ypsi) - All shorts and mids have been shoveled, some longs as well. A little slippery on some, bu most were pretty decent.
