Frost damage

You may have noticed on your home lawn some browning of the turf in the last week.  This was due to the heavy frost/freezing we saw last week Wednesday.  We are seeing some general browning of the rough out on the golf course, again - due to the frost.  The tips of the grass blades are the only part of the plant affected and will grow out of the damage within a few weeks.  Below is a link to a video explaining the damage:

Here you can see where the snow from last Tuesday insulated the turf from the freezing temps on that following Wednesday.  We are seeing this on almost all the green and tee banks.  It looks like we stripped it with fertilizer - this was all mother nature.
