Yes that would be a start. Most don't know how to use a rake either. We get the combo here greens full of holes and trampled bunkers. The icing on the cake is the sand they spray all over the green trying to get out. Nothing makes me happier than putting over craters, pebbles and granules. If I start carrying anything extra it's going to be a leaf blower.
welcome to the world of public golf!!!!!!!!!!!!( although some private clubs are not much better)
