It's the season when there are frost delays at the Links. The average 1st frost in Glen Ellyn occurs October 6th. Cold nights in the Fall increase the chance frost will form on the golf course turf. If carts or foot traffic are allowed on the course while there is frost, there may be significant damage to the turf.
Our fall turf aeration is underway. Many people ask what aeration is and what our process is. We aerify all playing surfaces each fall to open up channels in the turf for water movement, provide plants access to nutrients and to allow natural gases in the soil profile to escape and oxygen to reach the plants roots.
