I don't really care when they do course maintenance, but when I'm standing in the fairway, 100 yards from the center of the green with a wedge in my hand, and two maintenance workers are spreading something on the green thirty feet behind the pin (and not even looking up), should I go ahead and hit? I think I'd be considered negligent if I hit one of them, even if they had no business ignoring players.

Many golf courses that I've worked at had lights on the mowers so that the first few greens could get mowed in the dark. Two to three mowers would be sent forty five minutes or so before sunrise. The first three greens would be done before play started.

Fairways would be cut in the evening following play.We would have days when the last start time would be and hour or so before sunset.

As far as topdressing while play is going on, that should never happen. The course should be closed for a day for topdressing. Of course that would mean losing green fees for that day.

The over-play is getting worse since they are building houses like crazy buy have not added a single hole of championship golf. That is the only problem I have with the new development going on.
