Destructive Ball Marks

The photo below shows the tremendous quality and condition of the new putting surfaces on the blue nine when we opened the course for play. The only decrease in quality over the last month is the lack of ballmark repair which will quickly reduce the quality of the putting surfaces.

The brown spot in the photo below is an example of how a golf green is damaged when the ballmark is not correctly and immediately repaired. We already have hundreds of blemishes on each of the new blue greens.

The flags in the newly opened #6 blue green represent the locations of unrepaired or incorrectly repaired ballmarks on the green. There are 165 incorrectly repaired ballmarks on the green. It will take weeks for each of the blemishes to repair themselves.
