I've never seen bottles for carry.  I think that might just be on courses with sandy soil types where a divot disintegrates.  Here any divots are beaver pelts you just pick up and put back in place.  I rarely even see bottles on carts up here.  When I head down south though every single cart has a couple bottles or a container with a scoop.

I agree with you but at my course that is expected and generally the members take very good care of the course.

Same thing at my club. I've actually never seen sand/seed available for walkers at any course I've ever played. I just replace my divots the traditional way.

I wonder if that is something that is only available in Vancouver?

 

At my course they have these very nice wooden boxes that hold sand/seed at each tee box.

 

This is the same for a couple of other courses that I play at in the area. 

 

I know there is a debate as to which is best for the course and a speedy recovery ..... replace divot or fill with seed.

 

Our head pro tells us to fill with seed and to turn the divot so the soil side is facing up. This allows the mowers to mulch down the divot at the next mowing.
