Frost damage on turf

Cold clear nights can cause frost to form on the surface of grass.  Traffic on those areas with frost can cause major damage and even death to very short cut turf like on a putting surface.  The course can not be played on or maintained until the frost melts off.  
The fall of 2013, after closing the Greywalls course down for the winter, someone was out walking on the property in the morning.  They ignored our ropes on 6 green and walked across the surface.  Every single footprint killed the grass below and in the spring of 2014 we had to make the repairs.  It took two plugs for every step.  
Just a reminder as lead into another golfing season.
