Soft conditions, major divots, ugly ball marks.

We have received several small rain events, while not a single one was particularly earth shattering, their combined effect is significant.
The next video in our series will talk about divots, how to repair with sand, and when to replace. Look for a link on the right hand side of the world of turf blog, or on the briar ridge turfgrass Facebook page.
The soft conditions require extra care. Please make turns gentle in the fairways, and avoid low areas, and saturated areas along the paths.
Please avoid practicing on the course in conditions like these. Soft conditions mean extra large divots, as you can see in the photo. This damage looks like damage you would see from a scramble, but is fresh from yesterday (I know because I smelled it).
Have a great Saturday,
