  1. Which type of grass do you prefer to roll the rock on and why??? I grew up on bent, so it's a little easier for me to read. Sometimes you'll get the occasional optical illusion.
  2. Hey everyone, My fiancee and I are planning to drive her car from her current home in Miami, FL back home to Boston, MA. We have a pretty tight timeline in June but were hoping to cross off The Ocean Course at Kiawah on our course bucket list. Although the weather might not be ideal in June (little hot for this Northerner), we have a wedding looming next year and don't know the next time we'll be able to play it. Unfortunately Kiawah is closed for aeration that week. I've played a few munis that are being aerated and although the greens might be a little bumpy, they take care of the aeration during the wee hours of the morning and near sunset. I checked Harbor Town in Hilton Head and while they are open the week in question (June 11-15), they are also aerating. (Although it says aeration from June 1-15) so perhaps the conditions will be better. Part of me would rather play these courses in their best conditions to truly experience them. On the drive we will be staying overnight with a friend in the DC area who often plays Congressional but with golf in the Carolinas did not think we had time to play. I might see if he can get us on the course. Any thoughts on playing nicer courses during aeration? Any course recommendations on the drive up from Florida? Maybe Pinehurst or Greenbrier? Thanks!
  3. This question is for the Greenskeepers. In winter, our golf course opens up for play each time the snow melts, and we are close! The problem is, there are some holes that just don't get as much sun and it takes longer. With the warm air, they are not frozen, instead, slushy and water is pooling up during the day, probably freezing again at night. . Here's a 10 second video: Would it do any damage to scrape/squeegee off this slush and water?
  4. Yesterday on the first green I found a swarm of yellow jackets stinging (and attempting to lift) a large millipede. The more the millipede twisted around and fought back, the more yellow jackets arrived to help.. dozens of yellow jackets came swirling in one after the other, like fighter planes in an old movie. My ball was 2 feet from the cup, and the insects were swarming just on the opposite side. In other words, they were not technically in the line of my putt, but they were still swarming around me in my stance. What do the rules say about this situation? I know that on the green you do not take a drop, but rather place the ball. Where would I place the ball in this case? Am I entitled to any relief? How is this handled? For those of you who don't know what Yellow Jackets are, they are highly aggressive, meat-eating wasps that live in nests (i.e., they are not solitary wasps). When I was 16 I stepped into a nest and was stung dozens of times; later when I painted houses in college I was stung dozens of times more.. so please do not question my toughness - getting stung by these little bastards is NOT a pleasant experience. FWIW I read the rule about insect nests in the bunker, I don't think that applies on the green, because the green is not a hazard.
  5. Does anyone have any experience with the Pitchfix Twister 2.0? I realized the other day that I fix a lot of pitch marks: mine, my play partners', players in groups ahead of me, etc. (This one group must have been pretty good because there were a lot of fresh pitch marks on the green, I'm guessing they all accidentally left their repair tools in their cars ) Anyway, I was thinking maybe I should upgrade my repair tool to something better. I currently use one of those souvenir ones with the fatter tines that I remember reading somewhere aren't the best for the turf. This one seems good and easy to use, but what do you do if you pop a divot out of the green with your pitch mark? You can't pull up on bare soil to repair a green.
  6. An assistant pro told me that one of our regional courses had a disaster related to subcontracting out the fall turf spraying. The greenskeeper brought in two trucks, one to spray greens and one to spray fairways. Well, the two trucks got mixed up on their assignments, and the fairway spray hit the greens and the green spray hit the fairways. Result: 18 dead greens. (like really serious, a rebuild for each) More details as they emerge. (The greenskeeper is now unemployed, and the course is keeping its name secret)
  7. Have any of you ever done it for a course? I know my yardages for my home course very well, and am good at estimating distances anyway. But even after ten years on this course I get fooled by breaks on putts. I was thinking of a winter project for myself, mapping the greens but not sure what it should look like when I'm done, or even how to start. Any thoughts, advice or photos would be great. Thanks!
