Frost

Over the past two weeks my golfing buddies and I have had to delay our morning start time for a round of golf because of FROST. Today with morning temps in the 30’s we will tee off at 1:30 p.m.

Our decision to delay our golf outings has prompted a man of the cloth to accuse our group of being wimpy.

Here is a picture of FROST on Cheraw State Park Golf Course-November 19, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.

When golfers walk on FROSTY turf they may harm the grass quite badly. Golf Course Superintendents are very protective of their grass and they will enact FROST delays.

The grass on putting greens is cut so low, around 1/8 inch, it is particularly vulnerable to damage when it’s covered by FROST. When a golfer walks on frost-covered grass it is more likely than normal to break and suffer ruptured cell walls.

I began to wonder just what is FROST. So I took my curiosity to YouTube to find out.

I think I knew it but FROST is just actually morning dew. The difference is that when the surface or ground temperature gets below 32 Fahrenheit the dew transforms.

Dew and FROST both involve the same scientific process. Cold air falls and warm air rises. When the air temp is cooler than the dew point moistures forms on the ground. When the ground temp is below freezing FROST forms.

I feel better knowing that adhering to a FROST delay on the golf course is a perfectly sound reason to sleep late.
