WEEK OF 8/21
As we move into the third week of high school golf season, there are a few things we can learn from our junior golfers:
1. Ball repair - while watching golfers hit their shots onto #9, it is amazing to see nearly each and every high school golfer repair their ball mark on the green. They have been taught well from their teachers and coaches!
2. Divot repair - did you know the sand bottles on your cart and in the middle of the par 5 fairways are for you to use to repair any divots that cannot be replaced with the turf? As walkers, the golfer doesn't have that option to use a sand bottle unless it is a par 3 or the shot is hit from the fairway where a bottle is located. It is always nice to see our juniors use the sand bottles OR replace the divot that has not come apart.
3. Pace of play - we all know high schoolers are walkers. They CAN walk and play a round of golf in 4 - 4 1/2 hours. Often, if there is a high school tournament with a ruling, they can't play "ready golf" but on a daily basis, the public can. Keep moving on the golf course. Be ready to hit your next shot. If you don't find a lost ball within 30-45 seconds, drop another and move on. PLEASE don't hold up the golf course by filling your grocery bag with retrieved golf balls.
There are instances when Mother Nature forces the closure of the golf course. Golfers may choose to play in the rain. However, there are times when significant rainfall will oversaturate the golf course leaving it susceptible to damage. This was the case recently. Although the rain stopped mid-afternoon for a few hours, the course remained closed. Please understand that staff is not trying to keep you from playing during these times, but are protecting the condition of the golf course as well as the safety of the golfers. Looking forward to sunny skies and dryer conditions!
