"Great course"

6/11/24: Review by RT

Great experience in first trip to Monroe CC. It's a haul from Charlotte but worth the effort to play an enjoyable and well-maintained course. Front side is quintessential Ross - compact tract, small punch-up greens, hidden bunkers, very playable when you're in position....

I worked at wild wing plantation in myrtle beach a few years back. The answers to most of your questions depend on the type of greens. Bent grass takes the longest to heal and more water. It’s a cool weather grass and why it’s punched in the spring and fall. Burmuda will take the shortest and only done in warm weather because that is when it grows the quickest.

Large holes usually take 3-6 weeks to fully recover while small holes 2-3. All depends on the green type.

Sand depends on how heavy it’s laid down. Watering is done nightly and usually gone within a week or so. Depends on the hole size that is punched.

If the ball mark is fixed the correct way a day or 2. If it is left and even a little of it is sticking up the mower will scalp! it and it could be a week or so. At the beach we used long ball mark tools (like a stamper) that fixed the marks before we mowed the greens.

Depending on the grass for the tee box/fairway I learned in the south leave it. Use the sand they give you. some will be treated to grow the grass others will mix seed. don’t bother replacing the divot you took because once it’s out its dead putting it back only hinders the growth of new grass. Check with the course to see what their policy is if you really want to know. Recovery time is different for different grass types. I would say a week or so. That’s why golf courses move the tee markers back or forth every day or are supposed to. If nothing is done 2-3 weeks if fertilizer is put down.

Cleat marks are the biggest culprit in someones line. remember it’s a rule that you can fix a ball mark in your line but not a cleat mark. Also someone that may weigh a little ! on the heavy side can effect the line too by putting an imprin! t where you need to putt.

Hope that answers your questions.
