I wonder if anyone has had this problem, and what can we do about it, if anything?

We have centipede grass, for the most part, and it’s only the centipede that is affected. It has been very dry and hot (100 degrees for several days) here in coastal GA. For the past few days, we’ve finally had some good soaking rain. Yesterday morning, we woke up to big random areas of brown patches. All the neighbors have the same thing to various degrees.

It's a fungal disease called "brown patch". https://homeguides.sfgate.com/centip...res-74751.html

As mentioned above, brown patch fungi.

Centipede Grass Diseases

Brown Patch

Brown patch occurs in the hot, humid, wet periods of summer. It begins as a 1 foot wide patch and can enlarge to several feet. The lesions that appear on the grass become tan in appearance as the grass tissue dries out. Webby mycelium often appears on the grass on damp mornings. Do not fertilize when this disease is present. It will feed the pathogens and make it worse.
Here's some good info about centipede grasses...

"Thanks for playing"?

You asked the question, and I answered correctly. If you already knew the answer, don't ask next time.

I don’t know the answer, but the info you cited did not pertain. As it said, it has been very dry and hot. It only rained after weeks of drought conditions.

That's all it takes. But you already knew that.
