The older/physically limited players that have the ball pickers on their putters USUALLY can’t flight the ball high enough to make marks; it’s the lazy privileged entitled that aren’t taking care of OUR courses.

Ball marks are a minor problem compared to proper maintenance by the Greenskeeper.

I for one do not repair Ball marks on the greens nor do I rake the traps I have become one of the entitled. The powers to be don't really care about the conditions of the executive courses. I too don't care. I pay my dues and take what's there. It's really nice being one of the entitled, when next move is to get a handicap flag so I can drive right up to the greens. Sorry about this but that's the way I feel and no I'm not moving

Played Bogart Sunday. EVERY cup had been torn up by someone too lazy to remove the pin to retrieve their ball. Such a shame.

Sarasota...just got done playing Sarasota. Greens and tee boxes are in great shape, probably the best maintained executive course that I played all week. Kudos to their groundskeepers.

Somehow I feel like that’s the only part of the post that’s not true.
