Greens Covering

We recently deployed our covers to protect our greens from the harsh temperatures and high winds that we are experiencing.  The covers are used to help reduce the desiccation of the turfgrass plant caused by the cold wind blowing across the plant surface and removing moisture from within the plant thus causing it to be damaged.  The covers also serve as insulating blankets for the greens increasing the temperature under the covers by up to 10-12 degrees F.  This increase in temperature protects the crowns of the plant and the root system from possible cold weather damage.  We hope to have the covers pulled off by Friday and the course opened back up for play.
