Applying Winter Chemicals

Asked October 26, 2020, 3:15 PM EDT

Hello, With winter fast approaching and courses getting ready to apply the chemicals necessary to prevent snow molds and other diseases I have a question. Once the winter chemicals are down for the fall on the course is it still possible to golf? I am a golf professional in Northern Michigan and was wondering this due to the fact how Covid effected us this season. If we were to get a few days in the upper 40's to 50's could I still allow golfers? Please let me know the pros and cons of doing this. Appreciate your help.
