I was walking across the golf course yesterday afternoon and I spotted that they had put a lot of sand down on the mens first tee on the Master course. The yellow, blue and red tee markers were all at the very from of the ladies tee with a short shot across the water.
While I was putting up the notice for an upcoming FGS Sunday competition I asked what work was being done.
Apparently, all of the tees on the front 9 of the Master course have been top dressed with sand. Also, it is likely that the tees on the rest of the course will get a similar treatment later this week.
I guess that the sand is to encourage the grass to grow a bit more on the tees.
