Ball Marks

Sunday morning as I am walking on the greens, I’m shocked by the amount of un-repaired ball marks. Every body knows that there is a problem with ball mark damage to the greens here at the Club, but the most frustrating thing is that no one seems to be doing anything about it. On number three green alone I counted 21 completely unrepaired ball marks, that is not counting the dozen or so improperly repaired marks.

From an agronomic standpoint we have made changes to better equip the greens to recover from ball marks, but these changes will not make a bit of difference unless you first repair your ball marks.
