HEX Plugs

You have seen them used on the greens, but what are they and how did they get there? The Hex plugger is a tool that we use to replace damaged areas on the green or any other highly maintained area. The plugs are cut utilizing the same technique as changing a cup, but the difference being that the plugs are taken from our greens nursery.

The plugs are in a hexagonal shape so that several can be placed together when repairing areas larger than a cup cutter, but smaller than areas that would require sod. The hex plugger is a great tool that allows for quick and easy repairs to the putting surfaces.
