Let's help Butch (and each other)
Do you know the proper divot pattern to take when the grass driving range is open? A lot of golfers don’t but let’s help Butch and our maintenance staff keep a lush and healthy range by taking the right kind of divots.
Ask members where you should place the rake after a bunker shot and you’ll probably get a variety of answers. While this debate rages on and there’s no clear answer, it’s best for us to leave leave rakes in the middle of the bunker parallel to the line of play (see image below). Keeping rakes in the bunker helps our maintenance staff save time. Keeping rakes away from the edges of bunkers helps members avoid awkward and extra penal lies. Let’s help each other out and be mindful of how we rake and leave bunkers for the golfers behind us!
