This green keeping job is a dog’s life…..

Divoting tees - it's a dog's lifeGolf course maintenance is of course a never ending process of different jobs on different parts of the courses. The August maintenance procedures specifically schedule in work on the greens to keep them in tip-top condition. Daily green keeping involves early morning starts throughout summer, making the most of daylight hours and quiet courses.

It is good, though, to see a fair number of members out there for a quick 9 holes prior to them nipping off to work, and thank you to those are interested enough in what we are doing to ask questions – just don’t get mowed down by a Toro – literally!

Judging by this photo, a green keeper’s dog has a very busy working life when helping with the divots on the tees – sometimes you’ve just got to take a rest!
