We are rolling out a simple Adopt-A-Green initiative where we are asking all members for help in relation to pitch marks. Repairing pitch marks on the greens is very important to maintain the health of the greens and to ensure a smooth putting surface. Monkstown’s greens are in great shape at the moment and, with your help, we’d like to keep them that way!
The idea is very simple: As always, everyone should repair their own pitch marks, but in addition, every member is assigned a green based on the initial of their surname per the table below. As you play “your” green, we are asking you to repair as many pitch marks on it as possible. And perhaps to gently remind your playing partners to do the same. A notice of repairing pitch marks is also in the locker room for your attention.
If you have a spare minute I would ask you to view the attached clip. This clip shows how to repair pitch marks correctly. It’s no harm reminding ourselves on how to do these simple tasks correctly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?
