Tiny Orange Flags

If you have been out to Minor Park this year you may have noticed a lot of little orange pin flags. These flags are out there to mark our new NO-mow areas through out the course. It's funny that we call them no-mow areas but in fact we actually mow them at least 1-2 times a year. With that being said, this is hardly any labor and gas usage compared to the rest of the rough that we mow at least 2 times per week. This weekly mowing of rough consists of mowing  one 9 on Monday, next 9 on Tuesday, skipping Wednesday and repeating the process Thursday-Friday. So if you compared this process to your own lawn you can see that your time and your fuel would be used up very quickly.

Most of the areas we have chosen are areas that are  outside the normal landing areas. They also consist of areas that are close to tee boxes or behind greens. By doing these areas it really helps save labor dollars and fuel costs but it also helps Minor Park have some hole definition. Once these areas have grown enough we will remove the flags. So next time your out playing a round of golf at Minor Park take a look around at these new areas.
