Course Care

Did you know?


The average number of ball marks made on greens per round is 8 per golfer.


Assuming only 130 rounds are played each day on your course, your greens receive 1,040 impressions daily, 31,000 per month or more than 374,400 per year.


Are you wondering how to make a putt under these conditions?

A pitch mark which is repaired within 5 minutes will heal within 24 hours.  However, one that is not will take 3 weeks to heal.
