It’s a Mystery

This morning in the darkness when I approached the first green something could be seen on the surface, but wasn’t sure what it was. As I got closer there appeared to be a white foam pile on the green in a couple of different places. After I blew this material off with water from my hose it revealed that the turf underneath was burnt and dead.

I am not sure what this material was, but there were signs that other non golfing activity took place around the green the previous night. There were empty bottles and all of the bunker rakes were in a pile, fortunately no other damage took place. Unfortunately this area appears that it will have to be re-sodded to repair the damage, we will make that decision tomorrow.
