Blue Nine Opening

It is finally here. The Blue Nine opens for full play tomorrow. You have read where I have written about young, new greens and how vulnerable they are to mower and foot traffic in their first season of growth. Of significant importance is how golfers care for the new greens. The photo below is of an un-repaired ball mark on the #1 blue green. The turf is ready for play and it is in premier condition. How golfers care for the course will have a tremendous bearing on the continuing quality of the new greens. Hundreds of un-repaired ball marks on a green will quickly diminish the putting surface both in smoothness of ball roll and aesthetics.
Thanks in advance for giving special attention to ball mark and divot repair.
