Please Repair your Pitch-Marks on the Green

As you are aware due to the winter conditions and softening ground our greens are taking a hammering due to un-repaired pitch-marks. If your ball lands on the green, it will leave a mark, but if you repair this promptly and correctly there is no lasting damage. An un-repaired pitch-mark will cause damage that may take a long time to recover.

We have soil-based greens in Abbeyleix Golf Club that are prone to damage, and we need to protect what we have.

We urge all members and visitors to repair at least two pitch-marks on every green each time they play. It only takes a minute; anyone can do it and everyone should do it. The benefits of this simple action far outweigh the consequences.

Thank you in anticipation of your cooperation.
