Today was our first frost delay of the season.  For frost to form the three c's have to come together.  Cold (near freezing), calm (little to no wind) and clear (clear sky).  When frost forms on the grass, the cells of the grass plant freeze.  Any traffic that impacts the frozen grass plant causes the frozen cells to burst thus killing the grass plant.  This is why we delay golf until the frost has melted away.  Thank you for your patience on frost delay mornings as we are protecting our golf course for all to enjoy.
