Lost Round due to storm

Played this course before and it is great. However, on this date, a major thunderstorm occurred. We hadn't finished the first hole. Tried to reach Golf Now for raincheck, but, couldn't get through. Guess we lost the round unfortunately.

Rain makes major improvement

I’ve played the course five times this year and grass conditions have greatly improved in the last several weeks with rainfall. Greens are very fair and holding a line better than ever in last three years.
