After seeing the greens this morning I thought it would be appropriate to re-post the video on ball marks. We found many ball marks that were not repaired this morning with #7 green having a total of 17. Something to keep in mind is with the firm condition of the greens, many times your ball mark is well short of where your ball may come to rest. The 7th green is a good example of this as many balls will hit the green and end up just off the back.

Richie spends most of his time here at Claremont mowing Tees & Approaches. He is part of the weekend crew and helps with mowing and rolling of the greens and general set up of the golf course. Richie's easy going attitude and good sense of humor keeps everyone in the turf department smiling. Keep up the good work Richie!

Things are heating up and the staff in the turf department has been very busy for the last few months prepping for the upcoming growing season. With temperatures in the low 80's for the last few days it seems as though spring is gone and summer has officially arrived. Our main focus for the next six months will be the proper irrigation of the golf course.
One thing to remember, when you are out in the morning you may see sprinklers up and running throughout the golf course. This is the only time of the day that we can efficiently test and inspect the sprinklers and this process is critical to maintaining the system. These sprinklers will only run for a few minutes and we will do our best to monitor for any golfers around this work.
