Default Winter Snow Mold on Greens

For those of you that golf I thought you might like to see what we deal with in the spring after a hard winter. We spray preventatively in the fall, but we had a few greens that had some snow mold damage that required repair. The hexagon shapes are the repair patches that I spent the day plugging out on one of our greens. You would never know that I spent 6 hours on this green.

Will the areas effected re grow? How long does regrowth take? Do the plugs effect the green surface from a putting standpoint?

Default Winter Snow Mold on Greens

The small areas will heal within a month most likely, we are already seeing some green coming through in those, it's the largest areas that we are concerned with. As for putting conditions, the patches may affect ball roll somewhat until we top dress greens in the next week or two. I top dressed them by hand and tamped them to get as smooth a surface as possible.
