Frost covers as customer service
I used to think of frost covers as a way to protect the grass. After I worked as a golf course superintendent in Japan, I learned that frost covers can also be used as a customer service.
James Huntoon and I discussed frost delays on the ATC Doublecut.
I mentioned that I may do a blog post with some photos showing how frost covers are used as a customer service, rather than as a way to protect the grass. Here it is, a bit of a photo essay.
I’ve also seen these tools placed at every tee. The tools are provided as a service to the golfers also, with the assumption that there will be play when the ground is frozen.
