Preferred Divot Pattern
This video came from Superintendent Dan Meersman at Philadelphia Cricket Club.
Below is a picture taken from our range tee this past year. You can imagine the time it takes for the grass to fill in this area.
We don't have a massive range tee that some golf course can have. We also have a large numbers of golfers that frequent the range. This puts a lot of stress on the tee for a quick recovery before the next wave of divots. Therefore, I have two requests 1. Use a divot pattern as outlined in the video and 2. Police your fellow members. If you notice someone making a quarry in the range tee, politely explain the Superintendent prefers a different divot pattern. I'll do my best to get the grass to fill in and I'm sure you will as well.
