It is a New Record!

Today I set a new record on the golf course.  The sun was shining, the birds were singing, I saw a cool turtle and I golfed with some great friends.  As the day unfolded, we teed off at 6 am and cruised around the course.  The mosquito population seemed to dwindle over night and the wind was cool and refreshing!  Does this not sound like an awesome day on the course!  I am so grateful to have decided to hit the links this morning!.

I guess you are wondering about my new record?  Yup, you guessed it, I fixed 45 ball marks today and 15 divots.  I realize that many players have bad backs and cannot bend over to fix or replace damage to the course, so I decided to help them out today….ok I will stop.

Making a Divot

But seriously, golf is a fantastic game.  We all love to see a ball land and hold on a green from 125 yards.  Usually, such a shot makes a divot and a ball mark.  It is important that all golfers take pride in themselves and the course they are playing by repairing their own blemishes.  I generally try to fix mine and another ball mark on the green.  It keeps the course in great shape all summer and helps the maintenance crew keep the course lush and enjoyable for everyone.

I am a grateful golfer!  See you on the links!

  4. We have a problem at our course with divots, inasmuch that we have crews who fill divots in the fairway with sand and seed. A local rule allows you to get a free drop from a repaired divot. So guys tend not to repair divots, so that they can then get a free drop if they land on one.
