Golf Course Marking: Why we do it this way
You can’t play the game if you don’t mark the field. Ron Hickman, PGA Master Professional, developed this webcast from an idea provided by a GCSAA member. We requested photos of areas on the property where some type of marking challenge comes into play. Hickman reviewed and categorized photos and addresses those questions in this 90-minute webcast. You’ll get insightful course marking tips based in part on Hickman’s knowledge and experience with the Rules of Golf, including officiating and course marking at 15 PGA Championships, two Ryder Cups, and six Masters. Improve your skills by learning from this expert.
