Scottsdale private golf courses enhances Golf course experience

private golf clubs in scottsdale

Scottsdale private golf courses enhance the playing experiences of all.

Our Pride of Membership program at  Scottsdale golf club is all about the playing on surfaces, which based on your positive feedback, you seem to enjoy.

Starting with the greens, they are as healthy as they have been in the last four years as we don’t overseed them and are entirely Tif eagle Bermuda grass.

In years at Private golf clubs in Scottsdale when we overseeded the greens with a combination of Bent and Poa Trivialis, they were typically inconsistent at best as at the beginning of the season and they were slow, with speeds in the 8’ stimp meter reading, for many months.

They are now considerably faster at Private golf clubs in Scottsdale and far healthier than in the past and we need your help in keeping all surfaces the best they can be.

We MUST fix ball marks on all greens at  Scottsdale private golf courses as many are starting to show and will need to be repaired.  The reason for repairing ball marks right away is that a ball mark repaired right away will heal in 24 hours and not show a mark after a couple of days.  If a ball mark is not repaired and the green is mowed, as they are nearly every day, the pushed up edge of the mark will get scalped and the ball mark will show for 3 weeks. 

To fix a ball mark, simply twist the sides of the scar inward toward the center, and tap down with the flat bottom of the putter head.

We MUST rake all bunkers smoothly at Scottsdale private golf courses out of respect for the players behind your group.  We will always suggest the pull/push method to fill the footprints and smooth out the surrounding areas as you move out of the bunker and leave the rake outside of the bunker as recommended by the USGA.

Lastly, everyone is disappointed when hitting a tee shot right down the middle of the fairway, only to have to play it out of a divot which had not been repaired for play with sand and seed mix.

These comments are all about respect for the, Private golf clubs in Scottsdale and  your fellow members and the club.  Please let us know if you are unsure how to maintain the course at  Private golf clubs in Scottsdale and we will be glad to help.
