Chipping Green Design

A common question I receive is,"Why is the chipping green designed the way it is?"

Based on my conversations with Dr. Hurdzan, he wanted to design a chipping area that had different sectors to the green. He knew there might be 3 or 4 different golfers practicing at the same time. With this design, each golfer could chip balls to their won section of the green. If the green was just flat, there might be 200 golf balls on the green at one time and the golfers would not have a clear spot to hit to. It was meant to be a Short Game practice area primarily for bunker practice and bump and run (low trajectory) chip shots. The pink markers designate the 4 different sectors of the chipping green.

I hope this gives you some insight into the design of the chipping green.
