Fixing Ball Marks and Replacing Divots

April 30, 2022

In 2023, Red Ledges’ Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course was named Utah’s Best of State Golf Course—for the 14th consecutive year! But at Red Ledges, golf is more than awards and accolades. The game represents an important piece of our community. To help ensure that you and your neighbors have the best experience on these beautiful courses—here are are two things you can do to help our team maintain this beautiful golf course:

Fix Ball Marks on the Greens

In this quick video, Jon Paupore, Director of Golf, and Pat Christoffer, Director of Agronomy, will show you how to properly repair ball marks made on the green:

Here are a few answers to commonly asked questions about ball marks:

Will the golf ball always be right next to the ball mark?

When you use a hybrid club or a long iron to hit the ball onto the green—the ball will land and likely keep rolling. When this happens, mark your ball and then look for and repair the ball mark before making your next shot.

Are there specific weather conditions that could cause players to make more ball marks?

If you play golf on a rainy day or just after it rains—you will likely make more ball marks on the green than if you are playing in dryer conditions. However, fixing the ball marks requires the same process regardless of the weather.

Should golfers fix ball marks not made by their group?

Help out your neighbors and your friends! If you take a second or two to repair a ball mark—even if it doesn’t belong to you, you ensure that the impact will heal quickly and will not interfere with anyone else’s putt on the green.

Replacing Divots on the Fairway

In this quick video, Jon and Pat give a quick refresher on how to take care of both shallow divots and deep divots:

Here are a few things you may not know about divots:

Is it embarrassing when you make a divot on the golf course?

Making a divot in the fairway may sound embarrassing if you are a new golfer. However, it is essential to know that everyone makes divots when they golf. The important thing is you take a few moments to fix it. The sand-and-seed bottles are already on your golf cart, and there are refill stations throughout the course if you run low.

Do specific clubs cause players to make more divots?

Yes, four different types of clubs are more likely to make a divot when you use them on the fairway. These clubs include Sand Wedge, Pitching Wedge, 8 Iron, and 9 Iron.

Does making a divot give you any feedback about your swing?

When you make a divot, there are three things you can learn about your swing. For example, deep divots are caused by steep swings. You will also see if you came in with the club’s toe or heel. Finally, the direction of the divot matches the direction of your swing.

And remember, only you can fix ball marks and repair divots. Please help us take care of this beautiful golf course.
