5 Things Every Golfer Needs to Know About Frost Delays

 

Crunchy grass is vulnderable to damage.

1.)  Golf course turf is normally resilient to traffic, but when ice crystals form inside the plants, they become brittle and vulnerable to damage. Walking or driving over frost-covered grass may rupture plant cells, leading to long-term damage or even dead turf. One may not see the negative impact from shoe or tire treads right away, but know it is happening, and it can take grass more than a month to recover from this damage. 

 

Location is everything.

 2.)  You may have no sign of frost at your house, on your car, or along the streets where you live, just to make it to the course and find yourself waiting on a frost delay. This is because frost can linger in colder microclimates long after other areas have thawed. North-facing slopes, low-lying areas, and spots sheltered from wind and sun are especially likely to remain covered with frost. If you are worried about a potential frost delay, feel free to call SkyRidge Golf Course (360) 683-3673 to check on conditions before leaving your home. 

 

Closely mown turf is at high risk. 

3.)  Frost damage can occur on any part of the golf course, but it poses the greatest risk to closely mown turf. Putting greens are particularly vulnerable because they experience the most concentrated amount of foot traffic. A foursome takes approximately 300 steps on each putting green. If there is frost present, all those steps could cause serious damage.

 

A little frost can cause big delays. 

4.)  No signs of frost on the first tee? That doesn't necessarily mean you'll get the "all clear" from Jeff or Jerry. If frost remains in areas that are unavoidable early in the round, the course must remain closed. It is also important to keep in mind that once the frost is totally clear, the maintenance staff will need time to catch up on course preparations before play can begin. 

 

Light goes a long way. 

5.)  Shade extends frost delays by preventing sunlight from melting the frost. Luckily, SkyRidge is a links-style course, so there are less trees providing less shade. That being said, however, there are some shady areas on the course. The longer the frost delay, the more opportunity the sun has to reach these spots. 

 

Rest assured, we, at SkyRidge, want to get you out on the course as soon as possible. But this means doing so in a way that preserves the integrity of the greens. Our limited crew of employees and volunteers work very hard all year to provide you with greens and fairways that rival those of neighboring, competition courses in regards to their health, playability, manicured aesthetic, and color. If there is a frost delay, pop on in to Soren's Café and have a cup of coffee, cocoa, or breakfast. Enjoy a program of your choosing on one of our five televisions, or get acquainted with some of our regulars. And feel good about yourself knowing you are doing your part to perserve the value of play at SkyRidge Golf Course. 

 

Pro Shop Attendants will endeavor to frequently post frost delay updates on the website, in an effort to save you a trip or a phone call. As ever, thank you for your patience, understanding, and flexiblity with this process as we golf our way through the winter months.

SkyRidge Golf Course:  The only golf course on the Olympic Peninsula where you can drive to your ball every day of the year. 

Welcome to SkyRidge Golf Course, the family owned and operated golf course off of Old Olympic Highway.

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned athlete, you are welcome to enjoy all the amenities our public course offers, every day of the year. SkyRidge Golf Course has a driving range, putting & chipping greens, proshop, power or push carts to rent, and access to a PGA-certified pro for lessons.

Course History

This summer, SkyRidge Golf Course is celebrating its 16th year; and all year long, members and visitors alike have been saying it's our best year yet. This land has a rich history. First settled by Soren Pedersen after he emigrated to the United States from Denmark, he developed an 80-acre dairy farm. The land has since been passed on to his children, Jeff, Martin, and Annie, who, with the help of friends, family, community members, Sequim Pioneers, and volunteers, throughout the years, changed the topography of this slice of the Dungeness Valley into the only links-style golf course on the Olympic Peninsula.

 

We are a 10-hole golf course that doubles as an 18-hole course, the back nine being played from a separate set of tees. "A 10-hole golf course," you may be asking yourself? Yes! When playing 9 holes, you can either end your game on Hole #9 or use the finishing hole, also known as Hole #18. We boast walkable, wide open fairways where you can drive to your ball all year round, challenging holes, surreptitiously placed moguls, as well as water hazards, and sand traps. And last but not least, our namesake comes from having an absolutely stunning view of the Olympic Mountain Range from every hole! So when you're taking a scenic drive through Sequim's countryside, be sure to turn into 7015 Old Olympic Highway and take in all we offer. When you're here, you're family.
