Fairway Height Raised for next week

Today was the last day that our fairways were mowed at our standard fairway height which is 5/8".  We will be raising the height to 3/4" to allow the turf to have some slightly increased growth going into dormancy. This increased leaf area allows the plant to store some additional energy before it goes to sleep over the next few weeks.  Shorter days and lower temperatures, notably below 40 degrees help to bring on frost. Normally a hard frost at 32F or below are required to bring the plant into full dormancy.
