USGA Summary Points:As traffic rates (golf rounds per day) increased turf quality and color decreased. The higher traffic rates (220 and 330 rounds per day) caused the greatest reduction in turf quality and color observed in February. Traffic at the high rate (330 rounds per day) reduced turf quality and color to unacceptable levels in February and March. When temperatures are less than 50Ā°F and solar radiation is less than 300 golf rounds should be restricted to 220 rounds per day.
