Although the weather threw us a curve ball this morning, we have the benefit of lots of daylight at this time of year to help us recover and get back on track for a 72-hole competition on Sunday.

Another band of more moderate rain is expected over the golf course in the next 15 minutes and how that affects conditions will determine if we can start at 1:45 p.m. Once this next band of showers passes, we expect light drizzle and clearing skies after 3:00 pm.

The Blythefield Country Club maintenance team was able to get started clearing the puddles from the course this morning and then had to stop due to heavy rains just before daybreak when another band of moderate rain headed our way. Once they can continue their morning work, we will access the golf course to see when we can actually start the golf tournament.
