Abstract/Contents:Discusses how putting greens and the surrounding area have a tendency to turn various shades of purple, red or blue in circular patches. This phenomenon occurs in late winter and early spring. The varying temperatures cause the sugars in the leaves to stay and provide the odd coloring. A few golf course superintendents have found that applying a broad spectrum fungicide in spring to frost-injured greens provides someuimprovement.
