I was IMPRESSED today when I stopped in at one of my home courses. Posted on all the entrances, the scoreboard and miscellaneous other places I saw a notice letting course patrons know they they’re punching the greens on October 3rd and 4th. This is not only courteous but honorable for them to do.
I REALLY don’t like it when I show up to a course, pay my green fees and then get to the first green only to find out they’re freshly punched. I think courses who don’t notify their customers are ripping them off. I really don’t enjoy punched greens.
So here’s a note to you golf courses to do the honorable thing and let people know when your greens are punched or when your course conditions are not up to par. You may lose a few short term customers while the course is recovering, but you’ll win them over in the long run.
