Abstract/Contents:Discusses converting the three clay tennis courts at Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minnesota to ice rinks, stating that "one rink, complete with hockey boards and nets, is filled every day with hockey players or broomball aficionados. Two more rinks are designed for pleasure skating, including an area for curling." States that general manager George Carroll "wanted to bolster the winter activities at the club." Details the process of constructing the ice rinks, stating that "the first concern was figuring out how to put up the hockey boards without damaging the clay surface of the tennis court...[so] they constructed the boards' supports above ground...[and] obtained a permit from the city to use a nearby fire hydrant to make the ice." Concludes that "a lot of people probably think that this all might be a lot of extra work for golf course superintendents...However, the end result is providing an experience for [the] membership, and that's kind of the big ideal."
