    That first one looks like mole/grub damage.

    Thats not snow mold in either pic, I think both were caused by moles.

    We get vole/field mice damage in our area every spring and it looks just like pic 1. Look for little mouse holes nearby.

    Thanks for the replies. These were already visible during the winter months. They did not just show up in the Spring. Any suggestions on how to prevent this?

    The first one is caused from voles, not moles. The second one is too far away, but it is either grub damage, snow mold, or both.
