"I moved the pins today, boss."

It's a reminder that many parts of lives are affected/controlled by people who do things like this and think nothing wrong with it, who also have drivers licenses and a voter registration card.

Not so much...ragged edges, backfill is uneven and below the surrounding surface. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Last week I took my son to our usual course to hit balls. When I walked into the shop a revolt was brewing - they had run out of cart keys. Plenty of carts, but short on keys. I got our bucket of balls and hurried out of there, the assistant pro was about to lose his life.

Yeah, the key to a golf cart is a pretty complex thing.  They use those same keys to guard Ft Knox and to launch nuclear missiles.

 

I think I could make one with a paperclip and a fart.

I used to play in a leauge at royal scott in lansing and i swear they never moved the pins at all. Every week the same damn place at lease there trying there 

Not sure if you're aware, but most courses divide greens into six sections, one for each day of the week, guided by GPS and Satellite mapping.  Thus, when we play a certain course on Thursday, the pin is going to be in a relatively similar position, as opposed to pin position on any other given day.

It looks as though the hole has been moved over as the original hole was damaged.  I've seen plenty of lazy guys cutting cups but never this bad.  I'd bet that hole was moved due to damage.  But it still could have been done better.

 Wut?

It's been awhile, but yep, there are 7 days in a week.  lol  We had it explained to us in kinda of a unusual way, using 6 days, with one day always being the same, and the other 6 days when the pin is moved to a new section each day. 

 

At my last club I was on the committee to decide if we install GPS in carts.  For GPS with pin positioning and yardage, greens are divided into sections.  So when a GPS shows a pin position, it's really showing the pin in a certain section.  If GPS says its 120 yds to a pin, it's to the center of that days section.  So all the GPS unit is showing is the pin in that days section, and section size varies depending on green size.

Do any of you work golf course maintenance?  
 

I do, we rotate 5 pin locations every morning.  Early in the morning when it’s dark sometimes it’s difficult to see old pin locations, and quadrants can be limited in new pin locations.  That being said the super or work director should be doing quality control, and the greenskeeper should be shown how to properly replace old pin positions.

A rotation into sections is very common. But if they did it in 6 sections and changed every day the holes would not be in the same place every Thursday. 

Green sections can be rather large or not so, depending on size of green.  Every decent course moves the pin every morning.  Whether the course keeps the pin in a day's section depends on whether GPS and pin yardage is used. 

 

If the course doesn't have GPS it's irrelevant.  On a course that uses GPS in any fashion, holes are not in the same place, but often very close, so it may appear as if it wasn't moved if someone plays on the same day all the time.   Some courses only have 3 green sections, front (Red), middle (white) and back (blue).  If that course has GPS in carts, it's unlikely they provide yardage to pin mapping / positioning.   I have been away from it for a while now, so not sure how technology as advanced usage. 

 

Have you ever wondered how you can be setting in the cart on the path, 20yds from the tee box, and GPS shows yardage to the pin, minus the yardage from cart to tee box?

Does your course subscribe to GPS?

No GPS. It’s up to the cup cutter to find the pin position.

 

It sure would be nice if ALL cup setters were as diligent and precise as you.  At my last two clubs we made sure who ever was setting cups that morning, he/she was properly trained, as if a PGA event was happening that day.

 

When I fix a green ball mark, I try to do 2-3, as does my wife and most close friends.  Pvt club members learn that early on.  Also, members rotated taking care of fairway divots on the hole they live on.

I've worked maintenance at a golf course before.  We knew if one of our guys had a bad day or wanted to be a clown he would do that.  It's a maintenance "thing".  Don't be too harsh Pepper.  Even superintendents and guys working maintenance have bad days.
