Sunscreen and bugspray caution for damage to grass was something new for me last weekend when reminded by @Golfspy_CG2 and ran across this poignant reminder and graphic warning by one of my local courses.  TRIGGER WARNING for those sensitive to scenes of damage to curated grounds.

Put it on at the vehicle in the parking lot, paved surfaces and gravel will appreciate the herbicidal application. 

Thanks for posting this!  Years ago in CT the Greenskeeper posted similar to this about BugSpray and Sunscreen. Since then I always apply in parking lot.

A non running 57 MGA that's been sitting in my garage for the past 10 years. Needed a complete frame off restoration. Based on estimates for body work, painting, mechanical etc. the cost far exceeded the value of the car in excellent condition. The guy who bought it is a 'hobbyist' that does all of that work himself. Even with the work required I still got a great price for it. 

Well, this post is especially for @tony@CIC.......................... today for me was a NO GOLF day, as there was a car  show in Rochester, MI (home of Leader Dogs) put on by the local Lion's Club with all proceeds donated to the Dogs. There were about 300 cars in attendance, and all entry fees went directly to the Dogs, as well as any 50/50 ticket money. They raised about $9000.00 today.

They just don't make cars with the style they used to.

Robert, it looks like you had a good time there and I think it's great the Lions Club put this show on in support of Leader Dogs. That's a great amount of money raised for such a wonderful charity.

The only reason I ever go to this event is because of the money they raise for Leader Dogs.

I try to participate or support most events which support that charity as what they provide those less fortunate who are unable to see for absolutely free is an amazing thing. They only get funds from private type donations, no government support at all. They raised about $9000.00 total today as all of the proceeds were donated directly to Leader Dogs.

I have gone to this event for many years and any awards are "People's Choice" where the general public walking around get ballots and fill them in for the cars they think should win.

This wasn't a wasted day for me and taking my car there for the event either. 😀

Wow, good to know. I never thought about this but shame on me for not as I usually apply sunscreen in my driveway before heading to the course and I see a version of this on the asphalt. I will be sure to reapply on cart paths from now on when needed.

If it does this to grass, why do I want it on my skin?  

I'm also concerned about the "blue stuff" the greenskeeper puts on greens that my ball and putter pick up.  I don't eat snacks on those days.

Wow. That is absolutely bonkers. Had no idea. 

Reminds me of an incident at a club I worked at while in college ... a member developed a rash and blisters around his lips. Turned out it was from him placing his cigar down on the fringe portion of the putting green during his round.

Love your Vette--- In the past I have had 2 big block Vettes both 69 models. One was original and the other one was a butcher job. The butcher job was originally a 350 auto and someone did a butcher job installing a 427 4 speed but I bought it for a song and dance and it was basically a rat rod. Believe it or not that was the one stolen in like 79 with my golf clubs in it. My original 427 was all factory and I bought it cheap when I was in the Navy from a Pilot transferring out overseas. I drove it 2 years and took care of it and a guy offered me twice what I paid for it. Had to let it go at that price. My last Vette in like 86 was a 77 model anemic as heck with a puny low power 350 and auto but it was a looker and the ladies loved it. Out of all of my Vettes the butcher job was my favorite. It was built and had plenty of power but was dependable as heck. I drove it to Florida several times. It was a brute with no AC but did have T Tops

The blue stuff is more than likely dye where they can keep their spray patterns up but I would say it can not be good for you along with whatever they are spraying.

Dammedest thing I ever heard happened in Charlotte a few years back. This guy used to walk like 9 in the afternoons and played barefooted. He got really sick and the Docs had a hard time figuring out what was wrong with him. They finally found out somehow he had stepped in Goose poop and some kind of parasite got into his system through the soles of his feet. Once they figured that out they got him healed rather quickly.

The blue is most likely a dye to ensure complete coverage of insecticide, fertilizer etc
