And as the Snow Melts Away, We Find...

Well, the good news is that it looks like the course made it through this long, cold winter without any ice damage to the turf.  However, once the surface of the greens finally came into view, we were greeted by Pink Snow Mold unlike anything seen before.

Although the appearance of these patches across the greens may be alarming, the damage is purely aesthetic at this point.  As the disease can persist even in the absence of snow, a fungicide treatment will be applied early next week.  With spring right around the corner, the turf should soon grow out of this less than perfect look.

Patches of Pink Snow Mold can be seen on most of the greens.
