Frost Process

Greens Update Dec-22:

 Frost Process

When the surface is frozen at Powfoot GC, there may be times when we allow golf to be played on frozen greens. Also, there will be times where we take the pins off and place them on winter greens. The process involves the green staff inspecting how frozen the ground is below the surface.

In some cases when the green has a frost covering but the surface below the ground is not frozen, then we are happy for golf to be played on the main greens. This is called a leaf frost and we feel that by playing on the greens there will be no significant damage to the turf. The exception to this if there is a frost after rainfall that causes ice on the greens, we will also put the winter greens in play.

When the profile below the surface is frozen solid, we will take the greens off the main putting surfaces to protect the greens from compaction, root break and potential turf loss. When conditions are like this the surfaces can become slippery and unsafe underfoot.
