I’m looking for good photos of ice on greens, and came across these photos on Twitter last week.

That’s Matthew Cummings, age 4, and Zoey Cummings, age 2, helping their dad remove some ice from greens. Ryan Cummings, superintendent at Elcona CC in Bristol, Ind., sent me the pics.

Ryan reports that it snowed again there over the weekend, but they are expecting to get the mowers out today. Also, Matthew likes looking at our “Pro Grade” section of the magazine each month… he’s already into golf course maintenance equipment, so that’s my kinda kid!

If you have good pics of ice/snow on your greens, please shoot them to me at! And thanks again, Ryan, for sending these my way!
