Golf Course Greens Winter Tarping Program
Golf Course Green Tarping
Winter kill of cold and moisture sensitive grasses on greens and tees has become a growing problem as
drought conditions throughout the upper Midwest and East, coupled with erratic temperature changes have
left course superintendents running for cover.
The question is no longer whether covers work, but which ones work best. The process of selecting the
right cover has largely been one of trial and error with an emphasis on both, trial and error. Mistakes can prove costly when greens must be rebuilt forcing club members to play temporary greens. The GreenJacket® system has been used for several years and has proven a good, partial solution. See Video of Tarping Procedure.
GreenJacket® says its products are as necessary as Mother Nature is not forgiving during the winter months. Snow and ice damage are always a major concern for golf course owners. Most of the firm's products are installed from mid to late November when cold weather settles in.
