First Real Frost

Over the last several weeks we have had areas where light frost has developed on the course, but yesterday we experienced our first heavy frost of the season. The temperature was in the mid twenties and was ideal for frost formation.

As we continue to have daily frost the growth of the grass will begin to slow down in preparation for the upcoming winter. The reduction in growth is welcome due to the fact that most of our seasonal staffing has left or will be leaving shortly. We will now be able to reduce the frequency of some of the mowing that takes place on the golf course, which will allow us to keep our focus on the driving range project.
