When is Opening Day? Something that we don’t say very often on Cape Cod. I, like most of you cannot wait for the snow to melt and be open for play. Most winters we never have to wait long or even at all for the snow to melt to get open. In fact, many, if not most years we are open right through the entire winter. Not this one!! This has certainly been one for the record books. So, when are we going to open? I answer that phone call a lot, especially the last couple of days. Bucky and Rob have been hard at work plowing and even sanding the greens to try and help speed up the process and prevent any ice damage from occurring to our greens. Several weeks ago I would have said April 1st……NO PROBLEM. The weather just hasn’t cooperated for us. The days that have gotten much above freezing are few and far between and the nights have just been downright cold. I guess the short answer is…I don’t know when we are going to open. All I can say is that we are doing everything we possibly can to speed up the process and we will open the course as soon as we possibly can, even if it is too wet for golf carts. We are usually the first course to get open on Cape Cod and this year will be no different. I will make sure to keep our Facebook page (link at the top of this page) updated as soon as I know we are going to open and I will send out an email to our entire database of dedicated Falmouth Country Club golfers!! So our patience has to continue here in the northeast after one of the coldest and snowiest winters I can ever remember. I can see patches of green……..
