7 green

The Rhododendron Festival is in full swing this weekend in Florence. If you need a break from the festival action, come squeeze in a round at Sandpines. There are still tees times available for both Saturday and Sunday.

Our preferred divot pattern on the driving range tee

I was really happy to see our preferred divot pattern being utilized on the driving range tee this week. I believe Aaron from the golf shop is mostly responsible. He mentioned as an added benefit, using this technique is easier on his wrists while practicing because there is less resistance after impacting the ball. Thanks Aaron, I appreciate your effort in helping to preserve the usable hitting area on the range tee.

Jerry slicing a fairway

This week, fairways were sliced. They were all done except for hole 12, which will be completed soon. The tees were fertilized. Core piles from aeration were spread out. The lower tier of the driving range tee was seeded and top dressed. In addition, greens, tees, collars, approaches, fairways, and rough were all mowed at the normal frequency for this time of year. Hole locations were changed multiple times, and bunker were raked.
