Change in mowing height

One of the topics of discussion this year with a few members was the rough around the fairways, more specifically the rough between the fairways and fairway bunkers.  Because the rough in these areas are irrigated and fertilized along with the fairways, they tend to be very thick; and these areas of very thick rough tend to jut out into the fairway in places that penalize the higher handicap players.

Therefore after a discussion with the Grounds Committee, we are giving some of these areas a trial run at a different height.  At select locations, we will be mowing these areas down to intermediate height, reducing the penalty of landing in one of these jungles that jut out into the fairways.

Holes that we are trying this on include - 3,7,10 and 15
