The pictures above detail the work we will be doing over the course of the next several weeks in some of the weaker areas in the fairways. First we have to identify the intended area (top picture). Next we cut out the existing sod and remove about the first foot of sand, soil, marl, etc. Third, drain rock and sand are put down to fill the existing area, slightly above existing grade. And finally the area is re-sodded with sod from our existing nurseries.  We have identified areas on holes, 18, 10, 12, 14 and 4 that we will be focusing on first. Please be patient with the crew as they undertake this extensive project. These areas will play as ground under repair until further notice.

Golf Tip of the Month

It’s easy to look at someone on TV and think that they have a perfect swing. The next logical step is to try to copy their perfect swing. Except it doesn’t work. Look up and down the range at a tour event and you’ll see that each swing is different. Some may look prettier than others, but they are all effective. Why? Each player has a swing that takes advantage of their own unique strength and flexibility with some room for personal style.
So what is the lesson for the everyday golfer? If you aren’t built like Adam Scott, including his strength and flexibility, maybe you shouldn’t focus on trying to swing exactly like him. Your time would be much better spent identifying your own physical abilities and either working around the limitations or improving them to create your own perfect swing. 

Pace of Play Tip of the Month
Play the correct tees for your ability. It seems to be an ego thing for many players to want to play tees too long for the distance of their drives or their ability. Next time you play, have your group move up a set of tees. This can accomplish two things. 1. Golf is a lot more fun when you score lower.  2. Fewer shots usually equals shorter rounds. Give it a try, you might find that you don’t ever want to move back.
Rules Section
What is the difference between a hazard marked with a yellow stakes and one marked with red stakes?
With a water hazard marked by yellow you have three options:
  1. Play the ball as it lies. (no penalty)
  2. Drop a ball as near as possible to the position you last played. (1 stroke penalty)
  3. Keeping in line the point where the ball last crossed the margin of the hazard and the flag you may drop as far back on that line as you would like. (1 stroke penalty) 
You have these options with a hazard marked red as well as two additional options:
  1. Drop the ball within two club-lengths no closer to the hole. (1 stroke penalty)
  2. Drop the ball within two club-lengths on the opposite side of the hazard, equidistant from the hole. (1 stroke penalty) (This option is not common.)
Thanks for reading.
Until next month, see you on the course!
