Black Frost

With the time of season it seems like everywhere you go there is a frost delay.  Lederach is in the same category.  When the temperature is below freezing even though it looks like there is no frost.....guess what....there is!!  According to Stuart Hartman, Golf Course Superintendent, the "Black Frost" that all golfers hear about is when the blades of grass still have moisture but the water is inside the blade and not on the outside making it look like there is no frost.  Until the temperature reaches above freezing golfers are normally held up.  We all look forward to the days when this will not be an issue allowing for early tee times and more rounds!!
