Frost Damage

Foot Traffic Causes Substantial Damage To Frozen Greens!

Golf greens are fragile and require careful, professional management, a green is a collection of millions of individual grass plants that are very delicate. The grass plant is 90% water and can be easily crushed in frosty conditions as a consequence play in these conditions can cause the plant to die.

There are two types of frost: -

 

White frost on the surface, damage to the grass leaf

 

Clear frost and the top 2 inches of top-soil have thawed, the sub-soil may still be frozen. Play on the greens in such circumstances will cause root break where the underlying roots are severed causing the plant to die.

Damage may not be immediately evident but within 2/3 days the leaves will turn brown & the plant will die. This causes thinning of the grass coverage & weakens the remaining plants. This in turn makes the surface more susceptible to disease. At the start of the new season the greens will take longer to recover and the quality of the putting surfaces will be compromised.

Ice also builds up in between the spikes on the golfers shoes, with the ice build up the imprint from golf shoes can cause damage to the surface as they now have the imprint of a football boot.

It is, therefore, essential that golfers do not play to main greens or use the putting green when greenstaff have put temporary greens in play. The greenstaff realize that temporary greens are not popular with the membership but they are a necessary evil.

 

Thank you,
