|No golf on days like this.|
Normally when we have frost on the course I will close the entire course to golfers. When there is no frost but freezing temperatures I will open the course for play but the greens will all be on temps.
In the past we used to cut the temps to a lower height of cut than the fairways to make them better for putting on. The problem at Pender is that our fairways are so bumpy that it often damaged the mower. Furthermore, no one wants to wreck the nice putting stroke they have been working on all summer by putting on temp greens that roll 3' versus the 9-10' on the regular greens.

This will still allow you to get out and golf and will save your putting stroke for the real deal. It will also save the maintenance department a lot of time and money.
