A New Twist on the Turn

The work on the green surrounds has definitely created a few maintenance challenges.  For example, under normal circumstances, crew members are instructed to turn their mowers in the rough (not on the collar) when cutting greens each morning.  However, when the rough is now fresh sod that was just installed, we have to find other options.

A 2' X 8' piece of plastic lattice works well as a surface to turn on, as it protects the turf, is lightweight, and can easily be moved every few passes the mower makes.
We have now opened the bunkers on #8 for play.  However, #2 and 3 should still be considered GUR.  The lattice is being left in these bunkers as a reminder that they're still not to be played from.
