It is great to see so many of the Club's members taking the time to fill their divots with the sand and seed bottles provided on each cart. However, please keep in mind that the mix contains Creeping Bentgrass seed, which is intended for use only on the tees and fairways.
Occasionally, we see someone filling a divot in the rough with the mix. While the effort is appreciated, we ask that you refrain from this. Bentgrass is a great playing surface when mowed at 3/8" or less, however it's not ideal when allowed to grow to 2". If you've ever found yourself in a section of the primary rough which has Bentgrass contamination, you may have walked away with a sprained wrist, as it can really grab your club.

Again, we truly appreciate the strong work on filling divots. We are only in May, and have already used over four tons of divot mix sand on tees and fairways this season!
