Irrigation running during the storm

  Throughout the day today we will be running irrigation on the greens despite the current weather.  This storm, while an inconvenience for much of the progress, provides an opportunity to flush the soils on the greens of any salts or contaminants that may have built up in the soil profile since their construction.  The soil profile of the greens is twelve inches deep, so a large amount of continuous water flow is necessary to effectively flush the contaminants through the profile and out of the subsurface drainage.
