Sand bottle for walkers
Fairway divot repair is part of the etiquette of the game of golf and has been for many decades.
The methods of repair differ as a result of climatic conditions, types of grasses and golf course rules. So, before you start your game, it’s always wise to check with the course management which system applies before you get going.
In colder regions where slow growing grass is used, the preferred manner is to replace the sod if it’s not broken up too badly.
In warmer regions where quicker growing grasses are used, the processes vary and therefore become a little tricky. Mostly, the golfer is tasked with carrying some sand or a sand/seed mix to pour into the divot instead of replacing the sod.
Here the golfer will try to ensure that sufficient fill is used and then flattened out to be level with the rest of the fairway. This allows the grass to grow back to the original height, keeping the fairway level.
