Let’s leave the course better than we find it. This is the time of year when there are lots of players on the course, which means a little more wear and tear. Remember, taking a divot is a good thing. Not putting it back—not so much. After you hit a shot, take the time to pick up your divot, fit it back into place and then stomp it down. Or fill in divots is with sand and seed. All of our golf carts are equipped with bottles of sand and seed. If you are a walker and have your own bottle, there is a bin right outside the golf shop.
Hitting a nice high shot into a green is a good thing because it likely will stop quickly. But left unrepaired, these holes will cause a smooth rolling putt to be misdirected, and may become a dead spot in the green. Which means extra labor for the greens crew and expense to the club to repair the damaged areas. Hey, while you wait your turn to putt, fix a couple extra pitch marks. If everyone did that we would never have a problem at all.
Another responsibility that you have as a player is to smoothly rake the sand in the bunker after you have played a shot or walked through one. There are usually at least two rakes in every bunker and they were not put there for the maintenance staff, rather for you. It is going to be a great summer at the club so lets all help keep our course in great shape.
