Course Closed Saturday, March 14th
Well, I guess it's great Irish weather but not for our clay soils. Even if I had 18 greens like 9 with drainage, it would be very difficult conditions with all features at Glen Echo saturated from the slow steady rain over the last 30 hours. I do not expect the course to open today. Sorry for the inconvenience. The warmer temperatures and the rain are greening the course up a little which is one benefit.
