Practicing at Flint Hills National

Many of you like to better your golf games by coming out to the driving range and hitting golf balls.

Believe it or not, there is a proper way to practice to conserve the precious zoysia turf we use.

Below is an image and example of what I’m talking about.

In this picture, the same number of practice balls were hit in the 2 sections of divots.

The biggest divot you take should be at the front of each row you start.   After the first divot of each row, place the next ball on the zoysia just behind the fresh divot.  This way, you will take much less turf on the following divots.

If you have any questions about practicing and how to best help us conserve the turf, please catch one of us in the golf shop.  We’ll be happy to explain further.
