yesterday I played a round at one of the few courses in my area, only to see how badly the entire course was treated by golfers. the TEE boxes and FW had 90% un-repaired divots...looked like a plow had been dragged across 'em... and the greens? well, I repaired 10 ball marks on one hole, and left that many more. Now this isn't solely on this course, I might add, but this one was horribly treated.It appears as tho respect for the course has gotten to a new low, at least on the 7 or 8 that I've played this yr. I know that rounds are way down, and that finances dictate remaining open, but this is out of control.
I agree with you, @ButchE. It's straight up disrespectful to treat a course like that. Things like this could also affect the courses business. If I was new to a course and I saw that everywhere, I would find a new course to play. It's just as bad as finding beer cans and other trash in the weeds.
