Divots: Repair or replace?

Published online: Jul 22, 2017 Maintenance

"I have highlighted in red divots in the approach on the 10th hole from this past week. A properly repaired divot will recover very quickly, a divot left unrepaired will take weeks to fully recover. That is why it is so important that everyone replaces their divot or properly repairs it with our divot sand. After you are done admiring your spectacular golf shot please take a moment to fix your divot properly.

So how do you decide to repair or replace?

If the displaced turf still has soil intact carefully put it back in place, using your foot firmly press to ensure good soil contact. If the displaced turf has broken into many pieces and has no soil intact fill the divot with sand and lightly press and level with your foot to ensure good sand-soil contact."
