Firstly, welcome back to Marianne & Sune who we met in the clubhouse yesterday afternoon after we had a knock-around on the Master course.
There are some changes being made on the Master course for the winter.
The first thing is that there are some white lines along the edge of the fairways defining different shaped edges to the fairways. I guess the green keepers will be cutting the fairways to these edges at least for the winter period. So it looks like a lot of the fairways are going to be narrowed a bit for the winter.
The second thing is that a number of drop zones have been put in place for when people are playing friendly golf. I guess they are not for official competitions as the local rules for the course say there are no drop zones to be used in official competition.
Some of the drop zones are the same as before. However others are different making the course easier to play. I guess this is to speed up play in the busy winter period. Here is a list of the drop zones I spotted yesterday:
Hole 1 - a new drop zone just in front of the ladies orange tee. So if people go in to the water on their second
Hole 8 - where it used to be at the side of the pond close to the 9th tee
Hole 11 - a new drop zone at the very far end of the water close to the 11th green.
Hole 12 - the drop zone is located on the island.
We did not spot any other drop zones on the course. However we will take a closer look when we next play.
