Range Tee Cover

In previous years I have kept the range open later into the fall and opened it early in the spring so the membership could hit off the turf longer. The drawback to this is that during the colder fall and spring months the turf does not grow and regenerate itself. The soil temperature are too cool at these times. The result is tighter lies for practice. Once the air and soil temperatures increase, the turf will begin to grow. Temperature governs the plant process, both slowing and increasing growth.
