    Does that really end your season? Like, do the courses close?

    Well, moving to a place in the USA where it snows, to a place that doesn't practically is like moving to another country.

    courses usually close here end of October anyway. This will take five days to melt. And it’s supposed to snow another 10 inches early next week. Seems like the end to me ...

    It was a 5 month season instead of the usual 7. Chances are most courses will just close, other than the usual goat tracks. Too much debris down due to snow weight. Blow out lines, get the tarps down.



    That was a real shock

    The course in your avatar will probably re-open. They’ll probably try to charge $140 around on November 3rd!



    Glenneagles really tries to work you! Usually they’re clear of the snow pretty quickly there though because they face south and get a lot of sun .
