Gabris just pointed me in this direction: Pads at Indy, Chuck D....Started with Black Tee #1, shovel broke while scrapping ice on White Pad #1. So I didn't scrap too much since it was so packed down. Kept going though, shovel finally had the handle blow out and I made the crack in the blade wider Pad #9. Blacks & Whites are clear 1-8. I didn't do the Reds at all since they are natural tees. The plan is to dig out the rest this weekend and picnic. Scott made a post on the Indy talk porti ... more

Scott White › yesterday at 11:53am What does the authority say on salting pads? So after more research I say: Avoid salting if possible. We generally don't know the quality of the concrete install. Because we don't know the quality it is risky to use salt as it subjects the concrete to a freeze/thaw cycle where the pores can absorb the water as a liquid. When the salts gets cleaned off or used up then the water in the pores freezes, expanding and causing surface degradation and pote ... more

Updates for Rolling Hills? I'll be packing a shovel for Sunday but I was wondering about ice on the pads?

Short tees at Rolling Hills were shoveled by every group yesterday. I think more snow fell then it froze so I wouldn't expect them to be playable right now. Probably need to salt

Most of the red tees at HM Original have been cleared of what had fallen by late Sunday morning. Excellent day out there, a true test of towels and Goretex. Most of the pads were too slick to play off, but hopefully it won't be too bad when someone gets out there early this week to start scraping.

Here we go again, kiddies. Another season of slip sliding along. Keep those tee-pad updates coming...

Does anyone know how the conditions are out at Indy Lake? Is it dry enough to play without destroying the fairways? Are the tee-pads muddy?

I shoveled all shorts including extras at Hudson Mills, Monster course yesterday. Hope the sun finishes the job.

Anyone have any Kimball Pine updates?

Vienna: Shorts, perfect. Longs, untouched snow covered when I paid attention.

Ottawa: Shorts, perfect. Longs, we shoveled the ones we could find (missed 4 or so). Icy underneath, but should all have melted with the sunny day (except the 4).

Lakeshore: short pads previously shoveled. pads on c and e need more shoveling.....avg 2-3" of snow on ground, patches of grass breaking thru, drifts to 6".....did fine with waterproof shoes and gaiters.
