This past Monday we brushed greens to stand up the grass, we took advantage of the cooler temperatures because this practice can be very abrasive under hot conditions. At times the grass becomes laid over and this is a good way to achieve a more precise cut. We also have vented a few greens on the course and will continue to do this to help in reducing compaction and allow air and water infiltration. This week we have been concentrating on course details and will be a daily routine through out the rest of the season.
There a few house keeping things that I would like to mention,
1. Please rake the bunker, foot prints left behind are unsightly and a disadvantage for the golfers behind you.
2. Please repair your ball mark plus another.
3. Replace your fairway divots or fill with sand, keeping in mind to use your foot to level out the sand, no mountains please. As this to is a disadvantage if a ball rolls into an unfilled divot but could roll next to a mountain. From a mower stand point, if you do not level out the sand this dulls the mowers and can introduce bad cuts through out the golf course.
4. Follow all cart rules for the day paying attention to the cart control post.
5. When parked next to a Tee or a Green, keep the tires on the path. This will reduce wear and tear around our most visible areas.
6. Please mention to your fellow partner or group to obey these rules, every one can help in a kind manner.
7. Have fun and enjoy your course.
If there is any question or doubt how to properly adhere to these items listed please speak with a manager on the Greens staff or the Pro Shop.
