Abstract/Contents:"Ice is everywhere this year. What does the ice do? Will grass be lost? How long does ice have to be on the turf to cause damage? Should it be removed? These have been common questions in recent weeks as we experience one of the more threatening winters on record. The concern is well warranted, as damage from ice is a regular occurrence in more northerly portions of the Northeastern Region. Although not common, ice has been known to cause significant damage further south, and this may well be the year for it. As a review, let's examine what is believed to occur under ice, practices which can help reduce injury, and steps which can be taken to initiate recovery. Above all else, golfers should be appraised of the situation and warned that winter damage is a strong possibility this year." Cites specific examples from articles by Bob Vavrek, John Roberts and James T. Snow of conditions in the Northeastern region.
