Repairing a Pitch Mark in the Green



It is essential that all players are diligent in their repair of pitch marks on greens.  A correctly repaired pitch mark, pushing the grass towards the centre of the depression, will recover in 24 hours.  A picth mark repaired incorretly, pushing the bottom of the depression upward, will take two to three weeks to recover.  And finally an unattended pitch mark may take two months to recover.

Our Greens Superintendent and our Lindsay Golf Club Greens Committee have requested a video be placed on the website to illustrate how to repair a pitch mark correctely.
